Permanent magnetic guideway discs for implementing variable segment lengths in continuous manipulators
The new technology relates to a compliant manipulator designed with a significantly improved agility. The individual segments of the manipulators are covered with permanent magnetic guideway discs. The arrangement of the segments is designed in such a way that these repel each other and with a change in length of the manipulator an equal distance of the segments is the result. The motion of the manipulator is e.g. initiated by cables or rods. The change of segment length can be enabled by sliding concentric tubes formed from a superelastic nickel-titanium alloy.
