MUSCLE ROBOTICS TO SHOWCASE INTEGRATED MOTORS AT BIOMEDEVICE CONFERENCE AND EXPOSITION

Full Line of Cool Muscle Motors and High Speed Demo of 2 and 6 Axes Synchronized Motor Systems Highlighted on Exhibit Floor

Santa Clara, CA-December 6, 2011- Muscle Robotics, Inc, a subsidiary of Muscle Corporation and an innovative distributor focused on manufacturing industrial machines and equipment today announced it will be showcasing its full line of Cool Muscle, integrated motors at BIOMEDevice at San Jose Convention Center (Decmber 6 and 7, 2011 Booth #145)). In addition to a static display of a full line of Cool Muscle 1 (CM1) and Cool Muscle 2 (CM2) integrated motors, a high speed demonstration of 2 axes synchronized motor system, a 6 axes synchronized system will be exhibited on the company's booth.


The company is partnering with Precise Automation, Inc., a leading supplier of automation software, controls, and robotics, to also demonstrate coordinated motion for life science applications using Precise's SCARA robot and Muscle's CM2 technology.

"With Cool Muscle, due to its integrated power supply, control, drivers and I/O in a motor, a customer can not only save space, but cost and time to implement," according to Mr. Hirofumi Tamai, President of Muscle Robotics and Muscle Corporation.

With direct presence in the USA, Muscle Robotics plans to provide modular solutions to automation and robotics field in addition to stand alone motor business.Muscle Robotics mission is to provide complete automation control solutions by combining Japan's quality manufacturing skills and innovations created in the USA.

ST Robotics - K11R robot controller now available for your own robot!

St Robotics is making the K11R robot controller available for any robot that uses stepping motors including the IGUS range. Providing you use low inductance motors the K11R will provide surprising power and speed from it's 55v DC supply and Gecko micro-stepping drives controlled by a fast DSP and micro-controller. The software is RoboForth II V17 embedded in the controller which together with the PC project supervisor gets your robot going within minutes. It is a text based conversational language that is so easy to use yet permits programs of great complexity when required. The kinematics are easily tailored to any size of robot and any number of axes from 3 to 6. The controller will also provide easy calibration to sensors and also reads back and compares encoders if you fit them. Speed, acceleration and rate of acceleration (3rd order) are all programmable as is emergency stop and many other features. Your positional data and programs may be saved on your PC and also in the controller's flash memory. The K11R will also control external devices such as pneumatic gripper, vacuum pickup, air cylinders and communicate with a PLC. Pricing starts at $2500. Contact ST at sales@strobotics.com
