in the future, robots will have arms


the kind of arms to pick up things, not like the puny arms that a T-Rex has. That’s the word we hear from Bec Conrad, who’s takingĀ  a break from her work with animatronic dinosaurs (see this link here: http://www.dinosaurlive.com/funstuff/).

Bec is helping us make this motion stage, based on a salvaged DVD player, a platform for some new precision products. With an encoder capable of 15um resolution from Austria Micro, and controls theory support from Bec, we look forward to using this prototype in our shop to improve our optical measurements.

A few prototype motion stages getting outfit with precision encoders.
