I am based in the UK and work with many vehicles. Can anyone help me price up, or find a robot type vehicle that can shift, move or lift cars while still being small in size? Our site is similar to a car park in a supermarket and the cars are locked or in gear so I would like something to either pull them, or lift and move them without damaging them. Thanks

Looking for input on best practices for robot cell entry. My company is large, multi-plant, and we are trying to standardize a method for operator entry for minor tasks. Narrowed this down to servo motor entry or trap key entry. Interested in pros and cons of both methods.

We have a robot cell with perimeter guarding and an interlocked gate. When personnel enter the robot area to teach the robot, we require the use of a teach pendant and enabling pendants for everyone in the area. My question is for tasks that are performed in the cell that don't involve the robot. For example, a minor servicing task, such as cleaning. The operator opens an interlocked gate and places a lock on the gate to ensure the equipment cannot start. However, there is the potential for someone to move the equipment through the teach pendant. What would be an acceptable method of control?

I am looking for a robotic arm that can perform a scanning application inside a 3' - 6' diameter steel casing tunnel shield. This will be a mining operation so the scanning application will be targeted to the vertical wall face. The robotic arm will be inside a humid environment and this does not require high precision. Thank you for your help. Chad Rudolph, Cornerstone Boring, 270-210-8853, chad@cornerstoneboring.com
