Surgical robotics is a growing application for automation, but developers, integrators, and end users should understand how the technology is developing, the role of motors, and what procedures are applicable. Learn more in this week’s RoboBusiness Direct sessions.
Nicolaus Radford, co-founder, CEO, and CTO of Houston Mechatronics, will explain market opportunities for maritime robotics, using his own and his company’s experience as examples, in this RoboBusiness Direct presentation.
Kollmorgen frameless motor specialist Tom S. Wood will explain how to pair motors with Harmonic Drive gearboxes in this RoboBusiness Direct technical breakout session.
The new gearheads are ideal for end-of-arm axes for small industrial and collaborative robots and general industrial machinery where weight is a critical factor.
POSITAL FRABA’s multi-turn kit encoders are designed to work without batteries, be robust, and be easy for robotics developers and others to install.
In this contributed piece, Kollmorgen engineers describe environmental factors to watch for that could affect the performance of robot motors, gears, and sensors.
Robots for assistive, therapeutic, medical, and surgical use have strict motion control requirements. A panel at the Healthcare Robotics Engineering Forum will discuss what designers and users need to know.
Providing the right motor for small precision devices can be challenging, as New Scale Robotics found when it designed a parallel gripper for cobots.
Harmonic Drive said its new FHA-C actuator includes an integrated servo drive, eliminating the need for an external drive while retaining high-positional accuracy and torsional stiffness in a compact housing.
When programming a robot to perform a task, it is very often the case that the robot motions involved must not cause the robot to collide with itself, its environment, its tooling and/or payload, or other robots. Robot programmers can either manually teach the robot trajectories/waypoints that move the robot and its end effector to […]
Kollmorgen has introduced the next generation of Motioneering, the company’s innovative servo sizing tool. Motioneering was introduced more than 20 years ago – the first tool of its kind – to help mechanical design engineers find the ideal motion products to build into their machines. It simplifies the design process by incorporating 100-plus years of […]
Conic Systems has developed the new Lifetime (LT) Series, precision, zero backlash harmonic gearboxes designed for high performance direct replacement of traditional high ratio planetary gearheads. The LT Series is available in metric sizes and NEMA 17, 23, 34 and 42 frames. The LT Series’ zero backlash characteristic is maintained for life and its high […]
Bimba’s PA Series has features intended to make it easier to install, easier to use, and more durable than other pneumatic actuators.
The FE060-25-EM is the first servo drive of the new FlexPro digital drive family from ADVANCED Motion Controls (AMC). Designed with compact form and power density in mind, the micro-sized FE060-25-EM can outperform larger-sized digital servo drives and still be integrated into tight spaces. At just 1.5 x 1 x 0.6 in. (38 x 25 […]
Realtime Robotics plans to use its latest funding from Mitsubishi Electric to accelerate development of systems to improve the safety and performance of industrial robots.
