Yale OpenHand Project

From Yale's OpenHand Project: This project intends to establish a series of open-source hand designs, and through the contributions of the open-source user community, result in a large number of useful design modifications and variations available to researchers. Based on the original  SDM Hand , the  Model T  is the OpenHand Project's first released hand design, initially introduced at ICRA 2013. the four underactuated fingers are differentially coupled through a floating pulley tree, allowing for equal force output on all finger contacts. Based on our lab's work with iRobot and Harvard on the  iHY hand , which won the  DARPA ARM program , the  Model O  replicates the hand topology common to several commercial hands, including ones from Barrett, Robotiq, and Schunk (among others). A commercial version of this hand is currently for sale by  RightHand Robotics ... ( homepage )

Robo.Op: Opening Industrial Robotics

From MADLAB.CC: Robo.Op is an open hardware / open software platform for hacking industrial robots (IRs). Robo.Op makes it cheaper and easier to customize your IR for creative use, so you can explore the fringes of industrial robotics. The toolkit is made up of a modular physical prototyping platform, a simplified software interface, and a centralized hub for sharing knowledge, tools, and code... ( homepage ) ( github )  

Changing Automation with Sensitive Robots

Critics of automation claim robots are out to replace people. The near future will show that people are definitely in control and will be able to leverage technology for greater profitability and professional satisfaction.

Adoption of Advanced Robots to Boost Industrial Productivity, Lower Total Labor Costs

The use of advanced industrial robots is nearing the point of takeoff, a development that could power a new wave of productivity growth in many industries and lead to changes of up to 5 percentage points in the cost competitiveness of major export economies relative to the U.S., according to new research by The Boston Consulting Group (BCG).

Why I Automate: MPI Systems

The latest figures show that 179,000 industrial robots were sold worldwide in 2013, according to the International Federation of Robotics. That was a 12 percent jump over 2012. The increase is expected to continue when the final numbers are tallied for 2014.

EXAIR’s Gen4 Ion Air Cannon

EXAIR's Gen4 Ion Air Cannon

Quiet, efficient, concentrated flow of ionized air removes static and dust! EXAIR's Gen4 Ion Air Cannon neutralizes static electricity and cleans at distances up to 15 feet (4.6m) with no moving parts. It is ideal for those hard to reach spaces or confined areas that require a concentrated flow of static eliminating ions. The Gen4 Ion Air Cannon will maximize ionized airflow while minimizing compressed air consumption. A small amount of compressed air is used to entrain a high volume flow of surrounding air. This combined stream is ionized by an emitter point (shockless) and delivered to the charged surface. A hose or tube can be connected to the air intake of the Gen4 Ion Air Cannon to draw quality air from another area. It requires only 10 PSIG (0.7 BAR) for most applications. www.exair.com/184/iacdirem.htm EXAIR is offering a special right now on all of their Gen4 Static Eliminators.
