Robotic muscles could transform manufacturing processes
We’re constantly looking for innovative ways to improve the Springwise experience, and so we’re now introducing BeeLine Reader, a new technology that helps you read more quickly and efficiently. To learn more about BeeLine Reader, an award-winning startup funded by Intel Capital, see BeeLineReader.com.
The manufacturing sector is undergoing continuous transformation on many levels, from increased production efficiency to carbon footprint reduction. A new method of holding items in place has been developed by a team of researchers working at Saarland University and the Center for Mechatronics and Automation Technology in Saarbrücken (ZeMA). The result is a system of robotic muscles capable of holding things in order to allow for the application of other processes. Particularly useful in assembly-line manufacturing, the new vacuum grippers are powered by electricity rather than the traditional systems of compressed air. This makes for a potential transformation of many manufacturing…
