Three Megatrends Shaping Robotics in the Life Sciences
Demographic shifts, technology advancements and commercial realities are each having a significant impact on the industry, but their interaction is influencing design methods and componentry, as well as the expectations those designs inspire.
Three megatrends are rapidly changing the landscape of robotics and automation in the laboratory and life science markets. Each of these trends stands alone in having a significant impact on the industry, but their interaction is influencing design methods and componentry, as well as the expectations those designs inspire.
What Motor Manufacturers Must Do for Robot Makers and Users
By Jeff Nazzaro, Gearhead and Motor Product Manager
Robotics represents different things to different industries. When it comes to propulsion, arm joint manipulation, turret rotation, and so on, many robotic manufacturers benefit from using frameless versus housed motors. The benefit comes from the options made possible by incorporating motors into their product designs...
Tech and 3-D Manufacturing Team Up to Make Bigger, Better Printer

Parker Hannifin is partnering with +Mfg to build a new 3-D printing platform large enough and stable enough to print an engine block.

"Parker was our first choice for the motion control because we knew its reputation in this field," says Paul Saleba, a +Mfg associate.

Electromechanical Positioning Technology
Parker's high precision product manager Travis Schneider build industry relations with local university.
In February, Travis Schneider, Parker EMN’s precision mechanics product manager, presented at one of Carnegie Mellon University’s technology seminars on linear actuators. “When applied correctly, electromechanical actuators are useful in many different applications,” he said. “Whether your goal is to make, measure, or move something, electromechanical actuators can help you to achieve higher control, and higher consistency.”
