Advanced Antivibration Components (AAC) offers a number of different silicone gel products for isolating vibration in UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) applications. Surveillance UAVs make use of cameras to obtain visual intel in military and other applications. Because there is significant vibration caused by turbulence and the propulsion of the system itself, vibration damping like that offered by AAC's silicone gel products is crucial for obtaining smooth camera footage.

AAC offers silicone gel spring mounts, pads, tapes and chips, but the bolt mounts are of particular interest for UAV applications. Identified as the V10Z61MS, V10Z61MA & V10Z61MB series, the mounts have a low profile design to minimize image distortion. They have a temperature range of -40°C to 200°C (-40°F to 392°F).

At Advanced Antivibration Components - AAC, we provide products exclusively related to the elimination of vibration, energy absorption and protection of components and devices from shock and possible destruction. AAC offers a wide range of shock & vibration isolation products, which include stud & nut type mounts, base plate fastened mounts, wheels, leveling & foot mounts, suspension mounts, spring, steel mesh & cable mounts, bumpers, channel mounts, bushings & grommets, pads & tapes, and couplings. These products are stocked in different materials, including rubber, neoprene, urethane, Sorbothane®, stainless steel mesh and springs. Many are suitable for use in extreme environmental conditions. Of special interest is a complete selection of silicone gel stud mounts, pads, and foam sheets, as well as paste-type and sheet-type thermal gel.

ST Robotics Develops the Workspace Sentry for Collaborative Robotics

The ST Robotics Workspace Sentry robot and area safety system are based on a small module that sends an infrared beam across the workspace. If the user puts his hand (or any other object) in the workspace, the robot stops using programmable emergency deceleration. Each module has three beams at different angles and the distance a beam reaches is adjustable. Two or more modules can be daisy chained to watch a wider area. "A robot that is tuned to stop on impact may not be safe. Robots where the trip torque can be set at low thresholds are too slow for any practical industrial application. The best system is where the work area has proximity detectors so the robot stops before impact and that is the approach ST Robotics has taken," states President and CEO of ST Robotics David Sands.
