FABTECH - ABB to feature a range of advanced technology robotic welding demos for fabricators of all sizes at FABTECH 2015
Demos include a compact welding robot, a three robot welding system with 20 axes of coordinated motion, a TIP-TIG production welding cell and YuMi, ABB's new dual arm collaborative robot
Floating on a cushion of air with an overall height of only 38mm, the new mini A-141 air bearing stage is one of the smallest on the market.
By Evan Ackerman for IEEE Spectrum: The best and worst part of the DARPA Robotics Challenge Finals waswatching all of those huge expensive humanoids topple over in a series of epic faceplants. Faceplants are called faceplants because you’re planting your face into the ground as a means of breaking your fall, which usually also breaks your face, among other things. This tends to happen when you’re unprepared for falling, which with most robots, is 100 percent of the time. Now researchers at Georgia Tech want to teach humanoid robots to fall more safely with techniques adapted from judo, which might protect them enough to actually be able to get up again. Falling safely (or, as safely as you can), assuming that you have very little control over the nature of your fall, is all about controlling exactly when and how your body crashes down. During a fall, your body is busy converting potential energy to kinetic energy, all of which has to go somewhere when you hit the ground. If your face hits the ground first, then that’s where all the energy goes at once, but if you can manage to contact the ground with a bunch of different parts of your body at different times on the way down, the energy will be spread out. Ideally, the energy gets spread out to the point where each individual impact doesn’t do enough damage to hurt you in a permanent sort of way. Cont'd...
Thomson Industries, Inc., a leading manufacturer of mechanical motion control solutions, has released a new educational video for design engineers, which provides step-by-step instructions on how to properly lubricate linear bearings and guides. The video is the latest in an ongoing series of multimedia content from Thomson intended to maximize performance, reduce lifecycle costs and extend the life of high precision linear motion technology.

Robolink: Articulated joint modules for robots. igus® now offers a lightweight, maintenance- and corrosion-free range of robot joints for humanoid systems or other automated applications. The carbon-fiber plastic joints can rotate and oscillate freely via four wire ropes. No more expensive milling, cutting or DIY systems. Moving mass is reduced to a minimum. The actuators (engines, pneumatics and hydraulics) and the control module (DP, PC) are kept separate. Contact igus® for more information and free samples.
