HIT Robot Group to Attend 2016 WRC, Bringing its Latest Nano-Robotic Manipulation System to the Stage

Through years of research, HIT Robot Group made a breakthrough in integrating position sensors to nanomanipulating systems in a scanning electron microscopy (SEM) vacuum environment.

BEIJING, Oct. 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- China's leading robot producer HIT Robot Group (HRG) is to showcase its latest Nanomanipulation System at the 2016 World Robot Conference (WRC) in Beijing from October 20-25. Since its debut last year, HRG's cutting-edge Nano-Robotic Manipulation System has received wide attention for the possibilities it opens up regarding manipulation of materials on a nano level.

Through years of research, HIT Robot Group made a breakthrough in integrating position sensors to nanomanipulating systems in a scanning electron microscopy (SEM) vacuum environment. This enabled its Nanomanipulation System to achieve better agility and accuracy with the world's highest automation and integration degree. By overcoming this hurdle, the company made commercialization of nanorobotics possible and thereby brought the system to the top of its field.

With this advanced technology, applications of nanomanipulation go far beyond medical care. Take new nanomaterials for example; with HRG's Nanomanipulation System researchers are now able to fetch, move, and even assemble nano materials, thus making testing on new nanomaterials much easier and more accurate.

"We see vast opportunities in nanomanipulation, especially in areas that improve people's wellbeing and truly enhance productivity in society," said Zhu Lei, vice-president of HRG. "Imagine the System as a nano-hand, as agile as the hand of a human being, only it can operate on a nanometer scale that is 50,000 times finer than a single hair."

"By virtue of the expanding Nanomanipulation System family and its competitive edge in R&D, HRG envisions to be a global leader in precision instruments and robotics," he added.

Leveraging the rich research experience backboned by Harbin Institute of Technology and the local government, HRG has long been devoted to developing China's most advanced robots including space robots, a lunar rover and now pioneering in the nanomanipulating system sector.
