6-axis hydraulic manipulator for nuclear decommissioning

6-axis hydraulic manipulator for nuclear decommissioning

A powerful, 6-axis hydraulic manipulator arm designed for use in the nuclear decommissioning industry relies on a motion control system from Moog. The company was approached by James Fisher Nuclear (JFN) for the hydraulic motion system, including modelling and simulating the product design. A manipulator arm is used to grasp and move materials without direct […]

Robot safety boosted for collaborative robotics

Robot safety boosted for collaborative robotics

Industrial robots are seeing increasing use in automated production lines. Until now, however, they have been isolated in cells to ensure the safety of those working in their proximity. Using TÜV-certified function blocks, B&R has now boosted robot safety to a level that allows humans and robots to work hand-in-hand. Pictured right: Robot safety is […]
