Industrial Robotics Case Studies
Client Profile: Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) is a global research university with campuses located in Pittsburgh, Qatar and Silicon Valley.
In automotive supplier Lear Corporation’s demand-led production, robot arms from Universal Robots play a crucial role: The lightweight robots assemble car seats by locating, measuring and tightening screws on car seats resulting in shorter throughput time and greater process reliability.
Business needs – Background A manufacturer of electric vehicle conversions offering a wide range of products, from small cars to large busses.
Part of modular CombiTac connector system, contact carriers are available for Ethernet cabling and field bus systems.
UL approved test leads are terminated with 4 mm diameter plugs for connecting standard safety test clips and probes to enable safe, fuse-protected measurements.
AxiClamp has connector body with solid metal cone that clamps copper cable strands against internal taper on metal sleeve.
Compatible with all oscilloscopes, Isoprobe® III high-frequency (250-500 MHz) test probes have coaxial connecting cable with low capacitance.
Used where clamping is not possible, magnetic adapters safely attach test leads onto screw heads.
The great advantage is obvious: the modular design permits the construction of application-specific plug connectors with standard modules.
As a customer-specific solution, Multi-Contact has developed fully shielded connectors for power supply with frequency converters, e.
Problem: Katayama American Company, Inc.
100% inspection and identification is essential for most products.
Cooperating squads of robotic vehicles may some day be employed for tasks such as fighting forest fires, cleaning up oil spills, delivering and distributing supplies to remote field operations and conducting a variety of military missions.
Problem: Customer builds electronic components for the automotive industry.
Sandia's Intelligent Systems and Robotics Center (ISRC) has proven its capability to develop and deploy automated inspection stations.
