New six degree of freedom position sensor greatly improves flexible manufacturing -- but will manufacturers adapt?

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The manufacturing industry needs better multi-dimensional position sensors to keep pace with increased speed and capabilities of automated equipment and robots. The market for laser and vision sensors is growing at a rapid speed; however, most of the robot- mounted sensors are one or two dimensional, three dimensional at most, while the robotics industry has progressed to 6-axis machines, leaving a gross mismatch in its capability to perform and sense the required task. A new laser sensor provides information. on up to six degrees of position, enabling robots to sense as well as it can physically manipulate, and opening the ... continued below

A new laser sensor provides information. on up to six degrees of position, enabling robots to sense as well as it can physically manipulate, and opening the door to vast improvements in flexible manufacturing. To expedite these improvements, the manufacturing industry should take a lead and not let an outdated norm hinder implementation.
