I'm looking for a robot to place small glass blocks on a 400mm x 400mm plate (surface is the XY plane) with a positioning resolution of 0.1 microns in X and Y and 0.05 microns in Z and rotational resolution of 1 micro-radian, with absolute accuracy of 20 microns and 50 microradians. Can you suggest any companies with experience of high precision robotics to approach who might make a custom robot to do this.

I am wondering what kind of safety features are available for a robotic arm to operate without being confined to a designated work cell? Is there a type of light curtain or occupancy sensors available? Any help at all on this matter would be great.

I've got a question about robots for Injection Molding Machines. Do you have to buy a robot specifically "designed" for IMM (like a Yushin or a Sepro etc.) or would any articulated (e.g. a Epson) or any Cartesian robot be ok? When do you choose articulated vs. Cartesian robot, and vice-versa? Conversely, is a robot for IMM useful for any other application? Thank you for your time !

I am completely new to robotics, and I am looking for a small, perhaps rail-driven robot that can pull wine bottles from a rack when ordered from a restaurant pos system. Robot would place bottle on a small elevator that sends bottle from wine cellar to main dining floor. Don't know if this is the right forum. Any reference to appropriate forums would be appreciated.

Whats are the future trends that are expected to affect robots in assembly lines over the next 5 - 10 years?Are there any up and coming "game changers" . I am interested in knowing about safety technologies which would allow a cell footprint to be smaller, new applications or significant improvements to existing technologies. How do you see integration/programming of robots in assembly cell changing over the next few years?
