How Universal Robots Doubled Production at Tegra Medical

Medical device manufacturer Tegra Medical faced profit erosion as costs went up and customers demanded price cuts. Deploying three collaborative robot arms from Universal Robots to tend the machines manufacturingmedical instruments doubled throughput, freed up 11 full time positions and enabled the manufacturer to keep up with customer demand while keeping costs down.

3D Printing of Motors and Electronics

My research involves developing techniques to 3D print electric motors and electronics. This goes beyond the usual 3D printed structures - structures don't do anything. To do things, we need motors and electronics to control those motors.

Robotic Additive Manufacturing Platform for 3D Printing Composite Parts

The first-of-its-kind solution consists of a standard commercially available robot, composite deposition end-effector hardware and a comprehensive software suite.

The Geminoids are Coming!

There is research going on at the University of New South Wales in Australia, to determine the behavior of humans, as they interact with Geminoids-the name given these life-like robots because of their similarity to humans. The next step is to study whether a human being can get used to interacting with Geminoids.

3 Micro Drones & Robot Swarms Initiatives Backed by the US Military

DARPA's FLA program aims to create unmanned nano robot like insects & birds that can go into buildings & perform key activities that will not be possible by Humans.

Robotics Startup Unveils Humanoid Servant

One of the technology breakthroughs of Alpha 2 is the servo technology that was designed specifically for this robot. The servos are miniaturized while providing maximum torque giving Alpha 2 the dexterity and range of movements currently only seen in robots costing 20K or more.

Solar for UAV Index

The new metric (PUAV) is a way to compare solar technologies specifically for UAV applications.

FUTURE ROBOTIC CARS Unvieled at Tokyo Motor show 2015

Driverless and Zero Emsision are REALITY by 2020.

Crowdfunding Projects For November

Here are a few projects we think are worth looking into. Be careful... it is crowdfunding.

SkyTech 2016 - UAV Conference & Exhibition

SkyTech 2016 is a two-day B2B tradeshow for the commercial UAV industry. In 2016 SkyTech will incorporate an exhibition, three conferences, workshops, product launches, live demonstrations and marketing opportunities for the commercial UAV community.

3D Printing and Acoustics: Rapid Prototyping of Sound Diffusers

By being able to design diffusers in 3D and print them, we streamline the prototyping process tremendously. We can do virtual simulations with the 3D models to get a sense of the effectiveness, and we can make aesthetic or functional changes before it's printed.

Collaborative Robot Applications

Here are some of the best applications that can be done by a collaborative robot (in my own opinion).

Robots in Restaurants

Here are three examples where Robots are beginning to take over in the restaurant.

Spreading like Wildfire

The Yosemite incident, and others in America and Australia, are representative of wider discussions that need to be brought to the public's doorstep if respect for when and where to use drone technology can be instilled as an agreed-upon standard of general practice.

Batteries for Robotics Applications

Our technologies are designed to fulfill the complex requirements of industrial robotics.

maxon motor's - Compact power for your motion control application.

maxon launches the next generation of positioning controllers - the EPOS4. A high performance module with detachable pin headers and two different power ratings. With a connector board, the modules can be combined into a ready-to-install compact solution. Suitable for efficient and dynamic control of brushed and brushless DC motors with Hall sensors and encoders up to 750 W continuous power and 1500 W peak power. The modular concept also provides for a wide variety of expansion options with Ethernet-based interfaces, such as EtherCAT or absolute rotary encoders.
