Hello, We have purchased a robotic arm to assist in placing circuit board components. One of the most difficult tasks we are having is deciding on how the components should be presented to the robot arm. We have approximately 100+ different components that can be placed, not all at once of course. Has anyone ran into this dilemma before or has some advise as to how we should approach this? Thank you, Larisa

I'm working on an indoor aquaculture project about to go commercial. I would like to integrate mobile robotics and am looking for the appropriate systems. The business is an indoor oyster growing facility where the robots would select, transport, dump, and replace baskets of oysters. The baskets are located in growing tanks. The robots would not become submerged, but probably would have to deal with drips and wet floors. They will work in the dark, use bar code or rfid tags and navigate either autonomously or follow flow lines on the floor. The baskets will be about the size of large milk crates and ideally be transported several at a time. Can anyone help with suggestions as to which companies to contact?

It's not clear to me, based on the other information provided above this in 5.6.3.4.3, if this is required in every circumstance or as an alternative to, for example, the ability to lock a gate in the open position.

I am looking for a robotic system to assist with handling ceramic molds and castings that weigh at least 60 pounds. We have had several lumbar strains from lifting these molds because they are handled at least 10 times each by the employee. The molds are fragile. We do have robotics in the facility to dip the molds in the ceramics. Do you have any recommendations?
