Horosys was able to standardize, add flexibility and optimize the cost of the Smart Micro Factory using the world's smallest and most precise industrial robot.
They move like snakes and reach places that are too narrow or dangerous for humans. The robust robotic arms of the Tokyo-based company HiBot take inspection, maintenance and repair to new levels.
Industrial robots have long had a reputation problem. In fact, distrust in automation has led to slow adoption in some countries. Even in the US, the International Federation of Robotics' 2019 report found that adoption rates were 49 per cent below what was expected.
Motiv Space Systems made several contributions to the Mars 2020 Mission. The Perseverance Robotic Arm was the highest visibility subsystem development. This role required a close relationship with the JPL systems engineering team responsible for the sample and caching efforts.
As for the TS5000, its communication functions enable real-time data transmission between the robot and controller, allowing manufacturers to integrate the system into a smart factory environment.
James Anderton for Engineering.com: Robotics are an ideal technology for fine assembly tasks, such as those in the electronics industry.
T he ST R17HS uses state-of-the-art brushless servomotors and boasts an effective reach of 750mm, a repeatability of 0.2 mm and a maximum speed after acceleration of 480 deg/sec in the robot's waist, elbow, hand and wrist, with a shoulder speed of 300 deg/sec. "The R17HS is the result of years of development that puts us ahead of the field," said David Sands, President and CEO of ST Robotics. "Customers are finding it useful for high throughput production as well as testing applications requiring fast motion of test devices." Full Press Release:
Neil Tardella for IEEE Spectrum: The DARPA Robotics Challenge this past summer showcased how far humanoid robots have come—but also how far they have yet to go before they can tackle real-world practical applications. Even the best of the DRC behemoths stumbled and fell down, proving, as IEEE Spectrum noted at the time, that “not walking is a big advantage.” There is, in fact, a new not-walking way for robots to perform many kinds of tasks better and faster: the dexterous drone. A lightweight flying platform with a robotic arm combines the strengths of two rapidly developing, parallel industries. Aerial drones like quadcopters and octocopters have in just the past few years emerged as a viable industrial and consumer product with substantial maneuverability, versatility, and durability. Yet the drones of today are mostly just flying bodies with no arms or hands. Cont'd...
Robotiq launches its newest Force Torque Sensor: the FT 300, bringing a sense of touch to robots. With plug and play integration on all Universal Robots, the Force Torque Sensor FT 300 makes automation of high precision tasks such as product testing, assembly and precise part insertion easy and fast to setup.
ST Robotics has announced today the release of its new passive tool changer system, the TC12, an innovative changer that requires no compressed air or electrics to operate, for the ST Robotics R12 five and six-axis articulated robot arms.
