We solve the motion platform problem with a combination of innovative techniques. These include: an extremely accurate sensor system, high speed computing, optimized power to weight ratio, and 3D printed parts.
In the past few years, we have found that ultra-short pulse (USP) lasers are being used more and more for medical device manufacturing – from stents and catheters, to wire stripping and balloon texturing.
Robots in Retail Environments Pivotal to Filling Information and Automation Gaps
It’s not a stretch to imagine solo and small farm owners keeping up with the major organizations in the business thanks to improved efficiency, maximized output and faster harvest and care times.
A Robosuit® is a conformal, custom-fitted cover that protects a robot from extreme manufacturing (or operating) conditions. It fits over the robot’s castings and servo motors without impacting the robot’s articulation or work-envelope (reach).
The BionicFinWave uses its two side fins to move along. They are completely cast from silicone and do without struts or other support elements. This makes them extremely flexible and thus able to implement the fluid wave movements of their biological role models
Exoskeletons are rapidly gaining momentum across myriad geographies. The huge presence of exosuit manufacturers and escalated product demand across military & healthcare sectors are anticipated to stimulate North America exoskeleton industry outlook.
