Industrial Robotics Case Studies
Kawasaki Robotics US recently turned to Güdel for a 21-meter-long, three-carriage TrackMotion TMF-4 for material handling in a body shop.
The Challenge : Automate inspection of large, complex geometry of a 75-ton turbine Manual inspection of a 75-ton turbine is a time consuming, difficult task that takes teams of workers up to two weeks, requires high levels of precision and is prone to human error.
In 2008, ORTHOPEDIE BONTOUX, a company that has specialised in the manufacture and adaptation of orthopedic and prosthetic apparatus (orthoses and prostheses) since 1982, created its subsidiary OSIC-CARBONE.
Client Profile: Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) is a global research university with campuses located in Pittsburgh, Qatar and Silicon Valley.
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.
VSoC-powered readers increase read rates, reduce downtime and speed setup In the not-so-distant past, manufacturers using laser scanners and conventional area-scan image based readers had to put up with inherent technology limitations.
Systems developed by Sandia's Intelligent Systems and Robotics Center (ISRC) often require precise control of the forces applied.
In response to the Department of Defense's Joint Program Office for Unmanned Ground Vehicles' request to develop a prototype of a mobile robotic test bed platform for military surveillance and reconnaissance missions, Sandia's Intelligent Systems and Robotics Center (ISRC) developed SARGE (the Surveillance And Reconnaissance Ground Equipment robot).
