Industrial robots and devices are used to perform repetitive or dangerous tasks where the objects being handled or the tasks being performed are often too difficult for humans.
This can be due to hazardous working environments or the size and weight of the object.
They are designed for tasks ranging from assembly and packaging to welding and painting.
Industrial robots are normally used in manufacturing settings where they can maximize productivity by working precisely and continuously at high speeds.Picture: ABB
Project CLET, a Dutch Robotics project, includes measuring plasma in the laser welding process. This measuring is performed through closed loop control. The goal is to develop a system that will operate in real industrial conditions. This will be accomplished…
Project Dexter tries to find a solution to the problems that face a fusion reactor that contains highly radiant and toxic materials and needs to be cleaned from within. The aim of project Dexter is to develop that next generation remote handling that…
