There was no mobile, automated semiconductor production system that enabled component transfer from one step to the next — until KUKA’s new wafer-handling robots.
Guided by artificial intelligence and powered by a robotic platform, a system developed by MIT researchers moves a step closer to automating the production of small molecules that could be used in medicine, solar energy, and polymer chemistry. The system, described in the August 8 issue of Science, could free up bench chemists from a […]
