  • World's First Nonmagnetic Robot Arm
    is designed to operate on the head of a patient sitting in an MRI machine. A surgeon at a workstation controls the arm using real-time MR imaging as a guide. And the robot 's hand is actually steadier than that of a human surgeon. A surgeon 's hand is stable to about 100 microns, say developers
  • Air spring key to robot handler
    Custom actuators, pneumatic clamps, and seal software are among the topics covered in the pneumatics reference guide. A robotic arm developed by Luzenac America relies on air springs to grip and handle bags of talc. Designing a robotic arm to handle 50-lb packages of talc powder was an engineer's
  • The less-is-more approach to six-axis robot design
    approach centers on designing cable-management systems for six-axis robots including cables, hose, tubing, carrier, and connectors in three separate segments. This differs from the current industry practice of using long, single-piece cables and hoses rigidly attached to the end-of-arm tooling
  • Medical Device Link .
    Dual-Arm Robot Features Human-Like Flexibility of Movement A dual-arm robot provides high-speed motion with two six-axis arms that provide human-like flexibility of movement. The design makes the DA20 robot suitable for assembling medical devices, as well as performing a variety of complex assembly
  • 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
  • Medical Device Link .
    When considering robotic automation of a task, it is imperative that medical product design and production engineers understand the fundamentals of robot operation. This article discusses these characteristics as well as a strategy for properly evaluating vendors and integrators of robots
  • Smart programming for smart cameras
    by the robot arm to pick up the piece fails because the arm was expecting the product to have the same orientation as all of the previous pieces. In such a design, machine vision can replace the simple proximity sensor to detect the part and guide the robotic arm. A vision-based system not only triggers
  • 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
