Today's applications require their sensor's feedback in much quicker intervals. The faster the response, the faster the production or through put of work, which results in a low cost per unit or operation.
With the artificial kangaroo, Festo also shows how pneumatic and electric drive technology are combined in a highly dynamic system.
Whether a robot is needed to prototype a part or a robot is the object being prototyped, Rapid Prototyping is the future.
Touchless rotary sensors are position sensors that use a position marker attached to an application's rotating part plus a sensor to measure the marker's angle.
Like any small company introducing change into their operations, some employees feared that automation may take their jobs. But at EMP, the opposite was true. "We've seen jobs grow, and that's very important; not only for this community, but for the State of Michigan,"
The FAST™ Program is a group of close to 2,000 products that can be utilized in many automation applications that we guarantee to ship within 1, 3, or 5 days, depending on the configuration.
The 2014 MATE competition highlights the role that ROVs play in exploring and documenting shipwrecks, studying sinkholes, and conserving our national maritime heritage sites.
Graphene may possibly be the future replacement for silicone. It's a two-dimensional material that measures just one atom thick and has a breaking strength 300 times greater than steel.
Here are three different types of rotary applications and the cable carrier system used for each.
New smaller and more portable electronics in aerospace, defense, and other stressful environments, like those encountered in robotics and oil exploration, are resulting in changing demands and designs of electronic connector systems.
For the Robotics Challenge, to demonstrate the robot's ability to operate a vehicle, DARPA chose to use the RANGER XP 900 EPS vehicles, which were all customized for the challenge with a TORC SafeStop Emergency System.
This is our special news page where you can read about and post news and announcements about products and services exhibited at AUVSI 2014 Unmanned Systems.
The next chapter in the industrial revolution is 3D printing, delivering a huge impact on additive manufacturing. It will not only create thousands of new jobs, but it will create many new businesses.
Essentially, we're creating drones for water that produce mapping capabilities; it's somewhat similar to air drones (i.e.: fixed wing UAVs) that map from the sky, but we're mapping from the water.
Downtime near zero vs. extended downtime of former gantry system.

Zaber's new and improved stage (X-BLQ-E) is a closed-loop, belt-driven motorized linear stage with built-in motor encoder and controller. With travel lengths up to 3 m, 10 µm repeatability, and a maximum speed of 2.0 m/s, X-BLQ-E stages are perfect for rapid positioning over large distances. A built-in motor encoder allows closed-loop operation and slip/stall recovery, and an optional indexed knob provides manual control for operation without a computer. Like all Zaber products, the X-BLQ-E Series is designed for easy set-up and operation.
