Universal Robot and Optical Scanning System to Feature on Bowers Group’s MACH Stand


Bowers Group is excited to announce that there will be a live demonstration of a Universal UR5 robot on stand at MACH Exhibition, working in conjunction with the new Sylvac F60 Optical Scanning system. 

As a complete measuring solution for even the most demanding of cylindrical parts, the Sylvac Scan F60 optical measuring centre boasts high quality, Swiss made camera and optics, offering superior image processing, speed and quality. Perfectly illustrating the capabilities of Industry 4.0, the Universal UR5 robot facilitates the loading and unloading of the parts in and out of the Sylvac Scan machine, negating the need for an operator and enabling 24/7 operation. 

With a working demonstration on Bowers Group’s MACH Exhibition stand H18 – 310, visitors will be able to find out more about how the robot facilitates the automation of the Sylvac Scan machine, enabling it to measure all the external features on cylindrical parts rapidly and accurately as an automated solution. The Sylvac-Scan has the capability to communicate directly with the robot, sending it valuable information for part classification and status; such as pass, fail, or rework. 

Bowers Group UK Sales Manager Martin Hawkins said: “We are delighted to offer visitors the chance to see Industry 4.0 in action with our products. The live demo will perfectly illustrate the Sylvac-Scan’s capability to communicate with the robot, opening up endless possibilities for continuous, accurate and efficient operation.”

Bowers Group will also be exhibiting its full range of industry leading metrology products at MACH. Visitors will have the opportunity to find out more about the range of precision measurement equipment available from Bowers Group, including a selection of products from Baty, Trimos, Sylvac, Gagemaker, Innovatest, WYLER and ACCRETECH.

Bowers Group Sales Director Stuart Millington said: “This years’ MACH Exhibition will be another fantastic opportunity for Bowers Group staff to demonstrate their outstanding levels of technical expertise and capabilities. We’re very keen to show visitors how we can assist with innovative metrology solutions, demonstrating exactly how our products and services can make customer’s lives easier.”
