Five minute robot programming
10-13 June 2008
Neue Messe München
Hall B2, Booth 538
Robot programming can be so easy:
Technologies from the fields of control, sensors and visualization allow the fast and intuitive programming of a KUKA robot system in minutes, using the innovative InTeach programming suite.
The InTeach programming suite is based on a new modular concept, which allows the adaptation of flexible robot programming tools. Programming does not have to be carried out by robot experts anymore but by the worker on the shop floor. With this programming suite, rationalization with industrial robots is possible even for small and medium lot sizes, with a consequent reduction of production costs. At AUTOMATICA 2008, the InTeach programming suite will be demonstrated in a MAG (metal active gas) welding application.
Welding lines of the workpiece can be taught by demonstration in minutes and be further processed to form a complete robot program using multimodal interfaces. Additionally, new software tools will be presented, including a graphical interface for 3D path illustration and editing with automatic or manual smoothing.

Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.
The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.
Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...
Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.
Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...
Layered 2D material improves efficiency for solar cells and LEDs
In the eternal search for next generation high-efficiency solar cells and LEDs, scientists at Los Alamos National Laboratory and their partners are creating...
Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.

Enzymes behave differently in a test tube compared with the molecular scrum of a living cell. Chemists from the University of Basel have now been able to simulate these confined natural conditions in artificial vesicles for the first time. As reported in the academic journal Small, the results are offering better insight into the development of nanoreactors and artificial organelles.
