  • Smart ArM: Pushing the Limits of the Human Body
    In view of the Cybathlon 2020, a unique international competition for competitors with disabilities who use bionic assistive technologies, a team of French researchers from the Institute of Intelligent Systems and Robotics (ISIR) in Paris has developed the "Smart ArM". An arm prosthesis designed
  • Linear Motion for Robotic Handling in Automated Warehouses-Pick and Place Arm
    When designing and configuring an automated warehouse, one design goal is to keep the system as light and compact as possible. Depending on the size of the load being moved, there are two common types of automated warehouses. In lighter applications, aluminum structures can handle loads up to 100
  • Automacad Concrete Lends A Helping Arm to Concrete Production
    Automacad Concrete (Québec, Canada) designed an automated conveying system equipped with an ABB industrial articulated robot to pick and place hardened concrete. Automacad worked with ifm efector (Exton, PA) to equip the ABB robot with vacuum sensors, pneumatic controls and the AS-i networking
  • Gantry Systems: Working Outside the Envelope
    The irregular work envelopes of traditional jointed articulating arms may require redesign of existing workspaces. SCARA and articulating arm robots might be the most recognizable form of robot on the market today but look to gantry robots for getting the big jobs done in the least amount of space
  • Accuracy, Traceability and Repeatability Key to Battenberg Haptic System's Success
    Battenberg's latest measurement robotics haptic system incorporates Mitsubishi Electric's RV-7F vertical, six-axis robot and controller. In addition to millisecond measurements, accuracy is further ensured with exceptional motion control through the use of a rigid arm design and forward feed
  • Mars Explorer Rover
    The Mars Explorer Rover (MER) program's two rovers - Spirit and Opportunity - were equipped for their January 2004 launch with a five degree-of-freedom, 1-meter long robotic arm known as the Instrument Deployment Device (IDD). The IDD positions instruments mounted to its end effector with greater
  • Unlocking Commercial Knowledge
    the interactions between every mechanism in their robot, and to accurately predict its behavior in the field. While their previous tools modeled the static loading of the robots, the complex motion of the robot arm was giving rise to brief moments of damaging torque for the motors - something their old tools
