Handling Robot SAMARA

08.06.2012
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> <br> <strong>Benefits</strong><br> <ul>

Im Focus: Interfacial Superconductivity: Magnetic and superconducting order revealed simultaneously

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.

While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...

Im Focus: Designing Architecture with Solar Building Envelopes

Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.

As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
