As robots become more flexible and enter new industries, they need to be as precise as possible. FAULHABER MICROMO said its configurable precision drives are necessary in numerous applications.
Surgeons treating brain cancer face a conundrum: They can capture ultra-high-resolution images of the tumor using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or they can use ultra-precise surgical tools to remove the tumor, but they can’t do both at the same time. At least they couldn’t previously. Worcester Polytechnic Institute professor Greg Fischer is in the process […]
By Michael Jermann, Assistant Editor Micromo is doing its part to help develop robotics technology for disaster relief by sponsoring Carnegie Mellon University’s Tartan Rescue Team. The company is providing funding in the amount of $100,000 and technical support for the teams CMU Highly Intelligent Mobile Platform (CHIMP). The four-limbed, human-sized robot is designed to […]
