Manufacturing the Hand-Held in a plastic injection molding process makes it possible to offer a more stable and cost-effective alternative to 3D printing. Installing it is fast and very easy and it is compatible with most commercially available door handles (Ø 18 - 22 mm).
There are three adaptations we are watching closely at Aethon since we believe they are a trend and may become more permanent. These adaptations will have a significant influence specifically on the use of automation and autonomous mobile robotics.
The benefits of collaborative robots have not changed. As we come out of this, businesses will seek ways to improve their production as they always have, and cobots provide excellent solutions to these challenges.
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.
