Handling Robot SAMARA
The handling robot system SAMARA (System Applying Momentum transmission for Acceleration of an end-effector with Redundant Axis) combines the advantages of heavy payloads and wide working space from Scara robots with the high acceleration of Delta robots. This is achieved by a new motion sequence that is characterized by a steadily rotation of the first axis. Thus it is necessary to accelerate only small masses, as the main part of energy used for the motion cycle is kept for the following cycle.<br><br>By applying such a redundant axis the kinetic energy can be retained in the robot links during a picking process and returned to the effector for speeding up the whole robot additional to the drives torques. As the nullspace movement ends with a stretched second and third link, acceleration of the effector must be regarded as an impulse, leading to acceleration of 20g. <br>
SAMARA allows solving “pick and place“ tasks even for heavy loads extremely fast, precise and energy-beneficial with only little space required for the SAMARA robot itself.<br>

A newly developed laser technology has enabled physicists in the Laboratory for Attosecond Physics (jointly run by LMU Munich and the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics) to generate attosecond bursts of high-energy photons of unprecedented intensity. This has made it possible to observe the interaction of multiple photons in a single such pulse with electrons in the inner orbital shell of an atom.
In order to observe the ultrafast electron motion in the inner shells of atoms with short light pulses, the pulses must not only be ultrashort, but very...
A group of researchers led by Andrea Cavalleri at the Max Planck Institute for Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) in Hamburg has demonstrated a new method enabling precise measurements of the interatomic forces that hold crystalline solids together. The paper Probing the Interatomic Potential of Solids by Strong-Field Nonlinear Phononics, published online in Nature, explains how a terahertz-frequency laser pulse can drive very large deformations of the crystal.
By measuring the highly unusual atomic trajectories under extreme electromagnetic transients, the MPSD group could reconstruct how rigid the atomic bonds are...
International research team makes important step on the path to solving certification problems
Quantum computers may one day solve algorithmic problems which even the biggest supercomputers today can’t manage. But how do you test a quantum computer to...
For the first time, a team of researchers at the Max-Planck Institute (MPI) for Polymer Research in Mainz, Germany, has succeeded in making an integrated circuit (IC) from just a monolayer of a semiconducting polymer via a bottom-up, self-assembly approach.
In the self-assembly process, the semiconducting polymer arranges itself into an ordered monolayer in a transistor. The transistors are binary switches used...
