Summary
  • Higher levels of speed, precision, and dexterity are being demanded of robots. New environments are demanding new approaches to system design and control. The major impact point is the tooling at the end of the arm. Robot tooling must be more adaptable and versatile to meet increases in applications and shortened life cycles of manufactured products. Tooling is still custom-oriented hardware. Odetics, Inc has developed a new robotic hand and wrist. Lord Corp's Industrial Automation Div has a new Model QC 50 automatic toolchanger for assembly applications. EOA Systems, Inc's MultiClutch line of variable sensitivity breakaway safety devices help increase robot uptime through the prevention of damage to end effectors and assembly fixtures. It helps maximize operation at high speed, resulting in reduced cycle times. Other new products include: Veeco Instruments Inc's sensed-compliant wrist; Brighton Automation Inc's breakaway device; Mecanotron Corp's EEP-3 series of grippers; and Telerobotics Inc's EP 50-02 precision parallel unit, used for assembly and quality control.
