New parallel kinematic robot for demanding industrial applications

01.04.2008
AUTOMATICA 2008
10-13 June 2008
Neue Messe München
Hall B2, Booth 538

The EU project SMErobot presents a fundamentally new robot concept that allows the affordable robot automation of demanding industrial applications.

The new concept, which is based on the parallel configuration of the robot's joints ("parallel robots"), is modular and easy to scale and has the inherent benefit of very low inertia of the moving robot parts. This, together with high stiffness of joints and arms, makes it possible to build high-performance robots with respect to accuracy, speed, stiffness and mechanical bandwidth.

A material removal prototype for fettling steel castings in small and medium-sized foundries will be demonstrated at AUTOMATICA 2008. Force sensors are used for interactive intuitive calibration and programming as well as for process control. To demonstrate the modularity and scalability of the robot, a smaller desktop version of the robot will also be displayed.

Im Focus: ScanCut project completed: laser cutting enables more intricate plug connector designs

Scientists at the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT have come up with a striking new addition to contact stamping technologies in the ERDF research project ScanCut. In collaboration with industry partners from North Rhine-Westphalia, the Aachen-based team of researchers developed a hybrid manufacturing process for the laser cutting of thin-walled metal strips. This new process makes it possible to fabricate even the tiniest details of contact parts in an eco-friendly, high-precision and efficient manner.

Plug connectors are tiny and, at first glance, unremarkable – yet modern vehicles would be unable to function without them. Several thousand plug connectors...

Im Focus: New Strategy Against Osteoporosis

An international research team has found a new approach that may be able to reduce bone loss in osteoporosis and maintain bone health.

Osteoporosis is the most common age-related bone disease which affects hundreds of millions of individuals worldwide. It is estimated that one in three women...

Im Focus: AI & single-cell genomics

New software predicts cell fate

Traditional single-cell sequencing methods help to reveal insights about cellular differences and functions - but they do this with static snapshots only...

Im Focus: TU Graz Researchers synthesize nanoparticles tailored for special applications

“Core-shell” clusters pave the way for new efficient nanomaterials that make catalysts, magnetic and laser sensors or measuring devices for detecting electromagnetic radiation more efficient.

Whether in innovative high-tech materials, more powerful computer chips, pharmaceuticals or in the field of renewable energies, nanoparticles – smallest...

Im Focus: Tailored light inspired by nature

An international research team with Prof. Cornelia Denz from the Institute of Applied Physics at the University of Münster develop for the first time light fields using caustics that do not change during propagation. With the new method, the physicists cleverly exploit light structures that can be seen in rainbows or when light is transmitted through drinking glasses.

Modern applications as high resolution microsopy or micro- or nanoscale material processing require customized laser beams that do not change during...
