Parallel-positioning specialist PI introduces a low-cost, yet high performance micro-positioning hexapod, a parallel kinematic platform that provides motion with 6-degrees of freedom. Auburn, MA (PRWEB) July 18, 2013 PI (Physik Instrumente), a global leader in high precision motion control solutions, adds a lower-cost hexapod to its large family of parallel positioning devices. Hexapods produce motion in all 6 degrees of freedom i.e. XYZ as well as pitch, yaw and roll. The new H-820...

Hexapod and parallel kinematics precision positioning specialist PI (Physik Instrumente) recently added close to 40,000 square feet of production floors, metrology labs and R&D office space to its factory in Karlsruhe, Germany. Auburn, MA (PRWEB) June 30, 2013 A significant amount of the new production area is used for the manufacture of high-load hexapods—six-axis motion systems capable of moving loads of up to five tons with sub-micrometer precision. To verify the accuracy of...

[ Watch the Video: Researchers Build A Robotic Bat Wing ] April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Searching for the secrets of bat flight, researchers have built a robotic bat wing which mimics the wing shape and motion of the lesser dog-faced fruit bat. The wing is designed to flap when attached to a force transducer - which records the aerodynamic forces generated by the moving wind - in a wind tunnel. Researchers can then evaluate the energy required to execute wing...


Word of the Day
attercop
  • A spider.
  • Figuratively, a peevish, testy, ill-natured person.
'Attercop' comes from the Old English 'atorcoppe,' where 'atter' means 'poison, venom' and‎ 'cop' means 'spider.' 'Coppa' is a derivative of 'cop,' top, summit, round head, or 'copp,' cup, vessel, which refers to 'the supposed venomous properties of spiders,' says the OED. 'Copp' is still found in the word 'cobweb.'
