Getting a Second Grip on Life

POSTED: 07/06/2015

Losing a hand in a tragic event turns everyday tasks into a constant battle. Nothing is the way it was before and even small things suddenly seem impossible. The high-tech Michelangelo Hand prosthesis gives back quality of life

Inked to Precision

POSTED: 07/06/2015

The tattoo scene is driven by younger artists who have little in common with the old stereotypes. They create true masterworks using the latest technology. And they all know the maxon “Swiss motor”. The age of rockers

Keeping Muscles in Shape

POSTED: 07/02/2015

For paraplegic people, rehabilitation is frequently a long process; this is why methods and tech-nology that optimize these measures for the patient

Kenshiro: Strong Robot with 160 Muscles

POSTED: 07/02/2015

The tendon-controlled humanoid robot created by the University of Tokyo has more than 160 artificial muscles and is the result of many years of experience. Around 100 brushless maxon motors ensures that the only 1.58 m tall robot has humanlike

Over Rough and Smooth – Robots on a Mission to Explore

POSTED: 07/01/2015

Intelligent robot systems are increasingly being used in disaster control, rescue missions and salvage operations – wherever it is too dangerous for humans. Robots that can

Relaxed Golfing with Maxon Motors

by Design Guidelines for Pneumatic Grippers, Design Guidelines for Pneumatic Grippers

POSTED: 04/08/2015

When designing a robotic or automated assembly machine, applying a gripper correctly unit can make the difference in the reliability and productivity of the assembly machine system or robotic cell. Gripper calculations will vary depending on many factors such as, part acceleration, part weight, physical size, tooling length, tooling jaw

High-Acceleration Servo Motors Create Cabling Challenges

by Lucas Kehl, Product Marketing

POSTED: 03/13/2015

In automated production machines, faster acceleration and deceleration of motion axes can lead to productivity gains. It’s no wonder that machine builders have started to adopt new low-inertia servo motors that offer maximum accelerations up to 5g, compared to less than 3g for conventional servo motors. The new motors can reach

Connectors Lower Wiring Costs

by Jack Gayara, Product Manager

POSTED: 03/10/2015

The assumption that hardwiring will minimize wire installation costs turns out to be wrong If you design or build industrial machines, you probably know all about hardwiring. It remains the most common way to bring power and signal to the

Robotic Snake-arm Flies into Tight Spaces

POSTED: 08/15/2014

A robot as agile as a snake can explore almost any hidden nook and cranny. Problems often occur in confined and hazardous spaces, and whilst these spaces are difficult for humans to work in, a

What is the Genuine Added Value From an Ejector with Integrated Controls in a Suction Cup Handling System?

by Josef Karbassi, Vice President Automation Division

POSTED: 05/05/2014

Introduction Air-driven ejectors are gaining pace as the vacuum source for suction cup handling equipment on robots and special purpose machines (ex: case/carton erectors, de-stackers, unloading equipment, etc.). It is an ongoing trend in many different industries, such as packaging, electronics, automotive, glass and plastics. The advantages over traditional blowers
