A modular system for Cartesian robots makes it simple to configure and add grippers, motors, linear modules and other equipment. The CamoLine, being previewed by Bosch Rexroth, represents a merger of Bosch and Rexroth technologies, according to Bashar Abdo, product manager. It also gives system integrators much more flexibility.
“Electromechanical and pneumatics can be integrated in one platform. Anyone can customize a robot with standardized components,” Abdo says. Along with common sizes and standardized positions for attachment holes, the modules include centering rings to simplify attachment.
By experimenting with the photovoltaic reaction in solar cells, researchers at MIT have made a breakthrough in energy efficiency that significantly pushes the boundaries of current commercial cells on the market.
In a world that's going green, industrial operations have a problem: Their processes involve materials that are potentially toxic, flammable, corrosive, or reactive. If improperly managed, this can precipitate dangerous health and environmental consequences.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
