Cable Carriers for Rotary Applications

Here are three different types of rotary applications and the cable carrier system used for each.

How Trends in Electronics are Affecting Connectors

New smaller and more portable electronics in aerospace, defense, and other stressful environments, like those encountered in robotics and oil exploration, are resulting in changing demands and designs of electronic connector systems.

DRC SafeStop Case Study

For the Robotics Challenge, to demonstrate the robot's ability to operate a vehicle, DARPA chose to use the RANGER XP 900 EPS vehicles, which were all customized for the challenge with a TORC SafeStop Emergency System.

AUVSI 2014 Special News Report

This is our special news page where you can read about and post news and announcements about products and services exhibited at AUVSI 2014 Unmanned Systems.

Additive Manufacturing and 3D Printing The Future of Manufacturing

The next chapter in the industrial revolution is 3D printing, delivering a huge impact on additive manufacturing. It will not only create thousands of new jobs, but it will create many new businesses.

Drones in the Water

Essentially, we're creating drones for water that produce mapping capabilities; it's somewhat similar to air drones (i.e.: fixed wing UAVs) that map from the sky, but we're mapping from the water.

International Paper Saves Labor Costs, Improves Reliability, Quality and Work Flow

Downtime near zero vs. extended downtime of former gantry system.

Beta Testing Dynamixel XL-320 Servos

Dynamixel XL-320 is a digital servo (in this case, featuring a 8-bit STM8 controller).

What to Look for When Specifying a Robot Cable

In order for a cable to withstand repeated torsional movement, it's necessary for the cable to have a special design. It's important that the conductors, shield construction and jacket materials of the cable compensate for major changes in bending load and diameter.

Robotic Welding Series: Robotic Flexibility Can Open Up Opportunities For Job Shops

This is the final installment of a 4-part series by KC Robotics about the automated arc welding industry.

Why I Automate: Vickers Engineering

Robotics allows us to draw a different level of employee. Employees that aren't just looking for a paycheck, but looking for a career.

Interview with Jim Gruszczynski of Nabtesco Motion Control

In the near future the more advanced the equipment becomes we must produce more skilled labor. This is great benefit to the US in that companies themselves will be helping educate their employees and improving the workforce.

2013 Nanotechnology Patent Literature Review

Similar to computers, nanotechnology is both an enabling technology and a technology sector in its own right. Nanotechnology is prolific in the research and development of almost every economic sector, from aerospace to medicine to energy.

The Unmanned Platform Common Control System (CCS)

The CCS prototype was developed for the U.S. government and its goal is to simultaneously control multiple unmanned assets in various environments (water, air and ground).

The Less is More Approach to Robotic Cable Management

There are different options available for guiding and protecting cables on six-axis robots. Three well- known solutions include flexible tubing, enclosed dress packs and robotic cable carrier systems.
