From bomb disposal and construction site monitoring to surveillance and firefighting, remote controlled robots allow humans to act in hazardous situations without putting themselves in harm's way.
Standalone arms provide much greater flexibility in positioning compared to the conventional design, allowing multiple arms to be aligned in a plane much closer to parallel. To further approach the parallel ideal, the bulk of each arm must be minimized.
Leveraging innovations in machine intelligence, environmental sensing and automation, leading technology manufacturers are now selling a variety of autonomous mobile robots capable of assisting consumer-facing workers with an approachable, friendly design.
Motors found inside orthopedic tools normally serve as the primary power source for driving devices like bone saws, drills or shavers. In these variable speed applications, motors need to be exceptionally small in diameter, lightweight & capable of running at high speed.
The crawlers access pipe sections with multiple bends, elbows and vertical sections, previously thought to be unreachable, up to 1km+ from point of entry. The award winning weld inspection system collects visual and dimensional information.
6-axis robots in particular, aside from being among the most widely-used industrial machines in general, have become known as the trusted workhorse of injection molding loading and unloading.
Sales of professional service robots rose by an impressive 37% in 2021. At the same time, sales of new consumer service robots grew by 9%.
Challenges faced by drones in healthcare - Drones can help improve healthcare, but it is still a new technology
Simulation models show that this new mode of transport could have huge cost advantages, with savings between 20 and 50 per cent compared to traditional multi-tiered land transport systems.
Medical robots can help fill in the gaps and transform the healing process for patients and caretakers alike. Some incredible innovations have been made over recent years that are allowing medical robots to revolutionize healthcare.
Novanta business units Celera Motion and ATI Industrial Automation will collaborate with MassRobotics to enable new innovations in medical/surgical robotics and other applications
With Boston Dynamics, the Group will create a robotics value chain, from robot component manufacturing to smart logistics solutions
The introduction of modern automation technology into the sensitive production areas of pharmaceutical and medical technology was rapid. However, the conditions for the entry of systems, components and robots into this sector are anything but easy to meet.
Robots have worked in emergency services for decades, and they're only becoming more prevalent. Here are some leading examples of these machines improving first responders' response times.
Several global organizations are already developing more and more uses for robots for inspection, maintenance, and repairs. Let's look at some reasons why robotic units are more popular now
CDC Awards $1.5 Million for Research to Reduce Exposures to Workplace Hazards through Robotic Technology
The Initiative supports research in the U.S. that will accelerate the development and use of co-robots, an emerging robotic technology that complements, not replaces, human workers.

The compact brushless EC-i motor combined with an EPOS4 positioning controller delivers a highly dynamic, powerful drive package with field-oriented control (FOC), high efficiency, and maintenance-free components in a high-quality industrial housing. The maxon IDX drives are suitable for use across the entire speed range (from standstill to maximum speed) and have an extremely high overload capability. Together with a positioning controller, the integrated sensor (single turn) enables absolute positioning.
