Complete guide to manipulator robots: benefits and applications

Robot manipulators are robotic systems designed to perform physical manipulation tasks, such as lifting, moving and placing objects in different industrial environments without the need for direct contact by an operator. These traditional industrial manipulators consist, typically, of an articulated mechanical arm that is fixedly installed in the desired location and can be controlled autonomously or teleoperated by a human operator. The manipulator arm will also carry an end tool (end effector) depending on the application. End tools can be vacuum grippers, grippers, robotic hand, screwdriver, or advanced vision / scanning systems, among others. Nowadays, when talking about manipulator robots, we no longer understand only the manipulator arm fixed in a static way, but mobile manipulation appears as an advanced development arising from the integration of a manipulator arm and a mobile robotic platform. Robotnik is one of the pioner manufacturers in mobile manipulator robots. Check out some keys for this advanced robots.

Unleashing Mobile Surveillance: The Power of Security Robots

The number of companies that are committed to the gradual integration of mobile robotics solutions for surveillance and security tasks is experiencing a significant boom that increases every year. Mobile surveillance robots offer a wide range of applications, from intrusion detection to protecting assets, infrastructure, and people. Beyond their surveillance capacity, they have tangible advantages such as cost reduction and greater specialization of security personnel. It's been a year since Robotnik launched its robot specifically designed for surveillance and inspection, RB-WATCHER. In recent months, we've seen how autonomous mobile robotics has become part of the operational strategy in terms of surveillance, inspection and maintenance of so many companies that are committed to innovation.
