Can I use a robot instead a human for weaving hand made carpet?
I have a program that finds a point in space (x,y,z,rotation). Can that program deliver coordinates to a robotic arm controller and the controller does the work of finding the fastest way to get to that point? If so, what is the protocol?
I have an idea for a robotic piece of equipment that would remove an old elastomeric expansion joint, scarifying the joint and installing a new seam. This is a repetitive operation that is done to expansion joints in parking garages. Do you know a company that would help design and produce such customized robotic maching?
Whats the best way to validate the accuracy of a robot? Interferometer, Leica, Faro? Suggestions please?
I own a McKesson Robotic Rx system 2003 mft. I want to sell. Where's my aftermarket? Thanks tom Gohn
Does a rule-of-thumb exist between servo motor HP and robot payload (kg)? I am looking for a general rule of thumb for payload vs servo motor HP. I hope to ID a conservative ratio, as an example, a 4:1 ratio between robot payload capability (in kg) to servo motor HP. I am sure arm length, and other factors come into play. Do I need to ID the relationship between robot payload capability (in kg) and its arm length and speed to servo motor HP as well?
Error Proofing Robotic Motion and End Effector Function: We are implementing some 6 axis robots in our factory, and it has become apparent that one of the big costs is error proofing what the robot and end effector are doing. You need to account for multiple unexpected, but possible conditions. I assume there are guidelines on how to optimize the error proofing to minimize the cost of implementing a new automated assembly operation, but I can't seem to find anything that directly addresses that question. Are there papers, books, or websites that cover the concepts involved with error proofing the automation process itself?
I need to have a usb powered micro linear actuator replicate a finger touching and untouching an iPad touchscreen. Can you help? Thanks, Stu
One of our clients, a major industrial company, is looking for experts and companies who can help design and build cleaning robots that would be able to work in the presence of public and would be part of a fleet exhibiting an autonomous behaviour.
What main areas do I need to research, design and plan a simple robot.
I have a Fanuc 420iW with and R-J2 controller. It was sitting for a while and does not operate properly now. I can't get past the SRVO-075 error alternating with MCTL-003. I am trying to re-master but I can't get it to move. SRVO-075 G:1 A:6. I would love a pointer to get around this.
Where can i find research on robotic hands or dexterous hand? I need research that covers the market and industry.
