Nobleo TEchnology has published an article in the well known Mikroniek, a magazine for precision engineers. What if it is possible to create an indirect-drive actuator with the benefits of a direct
drive? Typical struggles in actuator selection are to balance upsides, such as high force,
with the downsides of additional mass, volume and availability. Adding a transmission
has its own downsides, such as friction, backlash and hysteresis. But what if a gear ratio
can be created with the aid of flexure mechanics, eliminating all these downsides?
How does one deal with the parasitic movements, the own guiding stiffness, dynamics
and motor choice in a static use case? Here, a pragmatic implementation is presented
of an (in)direct-drive actuator that is self-guided and compliant in multiple passive
directions to be used in a steady-state multi-axis kinematically coupled system.
Stiffness is dominant and accelerations are low, putting the linear motor outside
its comfort zone of merely high-dynamic motion.
THE NEW NORMAL: AUTOMATING THE DIRTY, DULL AND DANGEROUS WORK
In a fast-changing world where automating human work was already emerging, COVID-19 further accelerates change and automation due to social distancing and it creates economic challenges by interrupting everyday life. Working with more distance from each other will be the new normal and machines will have to work together with humans for them to keep them safe, but also keep them in business.
Order Picking Robot for the warehouse of the future
What will the warehouse of the future look like? It might include warehouses that extend vertically into the sky, rely on drones for delivery and utilize robots for lights-out order fulfilment. We all agree: The warehouse of the future is a fully automated warehouse in which divers processes are smart connected.
Nobleo at ROSCon 2019
Nobleo had to honor to present our findings on ROS2 at ROSCon 2019 at the Real-Time Working Group workshop in Macau, China. We discovered that ROS2 introduced a significant CPU overhead and solved this by developing an executor that would provide the same behavior, but with lower CPU overhead.
