Compares the various features and advantages of using integrated robotic systems or dedicated workstations for drug discovery. Also describes hybrid systems. Provides guidance on the criteria for system selection.
Outlines the main highlights of the JARA (Japan Robotic Industry Association) report A Survey of Technological Strategy for Creating Robotic Society for the 21st Century. This survey was sponsored by the Japanese government's METI (Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry. This bulky report (298...
Recent trends in the plastic moulding industry that now mean it can be beneficial to apply six axis robots to tasks previously undertaken by simpler beam or Cartesian robots are described. The six axis robots are also able to undertake many additional assembly and finishing tasks that could not...
Two new items of dedicated automation have recently been developed by TTP LabTech Ltd to serve needs in the pharmaceutical industry that have previously been addressed by general purpose robotics. For both products the approach adopted has been to start with the fundamental requirements of the...
This article identifies a significant incidence of unsatisfactory outcomes in complex automation projects. It looks at the particular problems that arise when specifying and designing automated systems for the healthcare industry and how they contribute to complexity. A number of case examples...
The spring‐assisted gantry robots, described in this paper, were designed primarily for the rapid transfer of lightweight objects from one point to another, e.g. to pick objects from a conveyor belt and to place them in a box. The average amount of work required for pick‐and‐place...
Reports on a seminar entitled ‘‘Future trends in robotics'' organised by the UK's Institution of Mechanical Engineers, outlines recent developments in subsea robotics, reviews the evolution of surgical robotics, discusses the current state of application and research relating to mobile robots...
