Will Creating Robots for Space Travel Become More Necessary in the Near Future?

The good news is that space-based exploration, travel and research are all ramping up not just at renowned organizations like NASA, but also at privatized operations such as Space-X and Made In Space.

The Power of Adaptive Robotic EOAT

The challenge is that traditional robots have been designed to perform a single task extremely efficiently. But when the item or the task changes these traditional machines need to be reintegrated and reprogrammed.

Bringing Robotic Surgery to Places Where Others Don't Want to Go

Our concentration is to develop a surgical robot to go where it is needed the most, bringing the best competencies to where the injury happened. After all, if we can pilot a drone we should be able to operate a surgical robot.

Why Repeatability and Accuracy are Different in Motion and Positioning Related Applications

The terms accuracy and repeatability are often used interchangeably. However, accuracy is not possible without repeatability, but repeatability is achievable without accuracy. There are other errors, too, non-linearity errors, and linearity errors caused by thermal effects.

Vacuum Technology for the Digital Factory

In order for electrical vacuum generators, grippers and compact ejectors to be visible to the smart factory, they must provide digital energy and process data in real time.

The Future of Unmanned Operations in Harsh Environments Requires Innovation

Hirth Engines Head of International Business Development, Peter Lietz, highlights the importance for engine manufacturers to advance endurance capabilities of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) in extreme terrains.

Robots in the Vineyard

In France's Bordeaux region, robots ensure that the wine is organically good. They autonomously eliminate grass and weeds between the vines, making pesticides unnecessary. To enable the robots to navigate the hilly terrain, the developers took some cues from Mars rovers.

A Fossil as a Friend

Making a legged robot walk is not simple. Coordinating the motion of all its joints to achieve smooth motions, close to those of real animals, requires advanced engineering and careful observation of moving animals. But what if its been extinct for 300 million years?

RobotUnion Selects the 20 Best European Robotics Startups

RobotUnion offers a total of 4M€ in equity-free funding in two open calls for startups and SMEs within the framework of the Horizon 2020 program funded by the European Commission.

World's First Composite Concrete 7th Axis used for the First Time In Series Production at Car Manufacturer

Commissioned OEM Eisenmann alpha-tec regularly automates complex railway-oriented applications with industrial robots and is familiar with the latest developments on the 7th-axis market. That's why they use the world's first composite concrete 7th axis from IPR

Autonomous Mobile Manipulation Robots and e-Commerce Fulfillment

The sophisticated integration of perception sensors, autonomous navigation, manipulation, and artificial intelligence in Swift warehouse robots enables maximum picking productivity across single pick, trays, and totes.

Solving the Mysteries of the Universe

Instead of a new eyepiece or objective lens, the four-meter reflector telescope is being outfitted with about 5,000 fiber optic sensor-equipped, pencil-sized robots. The 5,000 robots will fit inside ten wedge-shaped petals.

Smart Production Lines in Automotive Industry Use Cobots

Much like other industries, the automotive industry is changing. With the increase in the variety of vehicle models, variants, and derivatives being produced and the shorter product life cycles in the automotive industry.

Is Robotization Destroying or Creating Jobs?

The human vs. robot topic in workplaces has been in the spotlight for quite a while. While many people are concerned about the risk that robots would massively replace humans, the truth is that robotization is actually creating jobs.

Solve Loading Dock Challenges With Robotic Unloading

This Honeywell Intelligrated white paper examines the specific labor, operational and technological challenges on the loading docks of distribution centers (DCs), and introduces a new solution to help deliver the performance modern supply chains require.

 IPR Robotics - Right-Sized 7th Axis Robot Linear Rails

IPR Robotics - Right-Sized 7th Axis Robot Linear Rails

IPR Robotics offers a wide range of servo-driven 7th axis linear rails for industrial robots. These rails come in ten different sizes and are constructed from modular high strength extruded aluminum sections to handle payloads of 100 kg to 1600 kg or from steel to handle 2000 kg payloads. This variety of rail sizes allows each application to be sized correctly, controlling the space required and the price point. The drive train design of these rails utilizes helical gear-racks and is proven over 10 years to be repeatable and reliable, even in tough foundry applications.
