2008 Robotics Outlook: Steady as She Goes

2008 Robotics Outlook: Steady as She Goes

The good news for robotics is an overall optimistic outlook for 5 to 10% growth as industry in general continues to do well. The not-as-good news is that the automotive sector cannot fund the same amount of automation that it could last year, reports the Robotics Industry Association. Most robotics market sectors are pegged for modest gains this year or will hold their own, with some exceptions.

Growth in robotics is anticipated in aerospace, alternative energy (e.g., fuel cell assembly), medical (life science) — not to mention agriculture and more food-processing assembly lines. In traditional sectors, process-intensive applications, such as arc welding, material removal, and polishing applications will grow. Not surprisingly, the latest robotics technologies — highly accurate positioning, dual-arm robots, integral safety systems, standard built-in vision capabilities, etc. — will contribute to this growth.

Stable are the Bonds with No Shrink
and Low Outgassing

Master Bond, Inc.

Stable are the Bonds with No Shrink and Low Outgassing

EP30-2 is a low viscosity epoxy compound for high-performance bonding, laminating, and sealing. Shrinkage upon cure is exceptionally low, 0.0003 in./in. It is especially recommended where low viscosity and superior dimensional stability is required. EP30-2 also meets NASA Low Outgassing specifications (%TML=0.50; %CVCM=0.01).

For advanced adhesives, contact Master Bond.

Quick-Change Device Eliminates Nuts,
Bolts, and Tools

Tooling Technology

Quick-Change Device Eliminates Nuts, Bolts, and Tools A typical setup that traditionally takes hours can now be completed in a matter of minutes. Tooling Technology's "Segen Locks" are reducing production costs by dramatically reducing set-up times. Segen's quick-change cylinders assure a fail-safe accurate and repeatable home position, eliminating old-fashioned nuts, bolts, and tools.

Low-Cost Screw Feeding Automation

Nasco Industries, Inc.

Low-Cost Screw Feeding Automation Nascomatic Screw Presenter picks up screws quickly with a magnetic bit or vacuum finder. For lower volume applications where full automation cannot be justified, the Presenter is configured for a specific size screw accommodating virtually any head-style. Easy changeover for different size fasteners; heavy duty construction assures reliable, long life operation. Prices start at $1,450.

Different Strokes for Solid Rivets

Different Strokes for Solid Rivets Often utilized for structural applications, solid rivets are upset in a different way than blind, semitubular, and tubular rivets. In contrast to one quick strike, solid rivets are set with a slow squeeze that cold forms the head and fills the hole as the shaft expands. For this purpose, numerous aptly named compression or squeeze riveters are routinely used as this Assembly article dutifully examines in detail.

How Do You Heat Treat Fasteners?

How Do You Heat Treat Fasteners? In practice, the key to attaining the ultimate required properties of fasteners is heat treating, which is routinely accomplished with all kinds of equipment. "The Heat Treatment of Fasteners — Practice" delves into the types of equipment used for the most common fastener heat treatments, why they are used, common problems, and heat treat considerations. The Fastener Technology International article is the third in a series on fastener heat treatment.

Wearable-Power Assembly Goes "Green"

Wearable-Power Assembly Goes 'Green' Designed to provide 20 W average power for four days, a wearable fuel-cell power pack for U.S. troops is being developed with "green" technology that even extends to the assembly process. No adhesives are used in putting together the 4 kg pack, which powers soldiers' battle gear. Instead, orbital vibration, ultrasonic welding, and IR lasers are being implemented to assemble all fuel-cell components.

FSW Now Possible for Steel

FSW Now Possible for Steel Currently utilized for light alloys like aluminum, friction stir welding (FSW) of steel is now possible. Key to this development was finding the right kind of spinning tip for higher-melting-point steel. The solution was a ceramic tip made mostly of silicon carbide. Rotating at 3,000 rpm, the 10 mm diameter tip can weld 1.2 mm thick, high-tensile-steel sheets together with 550 kgf in two seconds. Work is continuing to extend tip life beyond 2,000 joints.

Surgical Glue Flexes Its Mussels

Surgical Glue Flexes Its Mussels Inspired by mussels, scientists are perfecting a surgical glue that could be used to replace sutures, bonding implants such as artificial heart valves and vessels to the human body. UV light quickly hardens the glue in 30 seconds. A growth protein is added to the formulation to help tissue regrow and bond tightly with the implant. Synthesized in the lab, the adhesive will first be used to secure titanium tooth implants to the jawbone, sealing out germs.

Searching for Sea Star Adhesives

Searching for Sea Star Adhesives Creatures from Antarctica make their shells using a water-resistant glue, which researchers are attempting to analyze and reproduce as stronger biological adhesives that could be a breakthrough for artificial limbs, dentistry, and neurological surgery. The complex adhesive from the sea stars (actually Formaminifera) is believed to be protein-based with a sticky carbohydrate coating, which is drawn into a fiber.

Laser Welding "In the Thick of It"

Laser Welding 'In the Thick of It' Delivering 20 kW of continuous wave output at one micron, a commercial fiber laser can now be utilized to weld 1 in. thick 304 stainless steel at 0.85 m/min. Previously, such deep-penetration welds could only be achieved with expensive electron-beam machines in a full or partial vacuum. Now, thick metals and huge components for aerospace, construction, pipelines, and shipbuilding can be welded indoors or out.

Award-Worthy TFW Blisks

Award-Worthy TFW Blisks Developing translational friction welding (TFW) of titanium bladed disks (blisks) for military jet engines, the Navy Joining Center project team lead by the Edison Welding Institute was awarded the Defense Manufacturing Technology Achievement Award. Targeted for the first stage of the F18's F414 engine after GE Aviation investigated feasibility, the process cuts raw material and machining costs, and will allow repair of 20-30% more damaged blisks than previously.

Go, JT, Go!

Go, JT, Go! Weighing in over a ton and 26 ft tall, the "world's largest animatronic human" was created to promote last October's football game at Wembley Stadium between the Miami Dolphins and the New York Giants. Utilizing actuators, controllers, linear slides, motors, servos, and more, the monstrous model of the Dolphins' Jason Taylor sports 6 ft long shoes and "walks" at 4 to 5 mph. View the video.
