With its pressure sensitive skin for robots and End-of-Arm-Tooling (EOAT) AIRSKIN®, Blue Danube Robotics offers an innovative solution for improved human-machine-collaboration in mass production. memetis supports with its ultra-compact valve technology.
Nowadays robots are an indispensable part of mass production. However, many of the robots used there are secured in cages to protect "human colleagues" - robot systems that guarantee the safety of workers are usually expensive and have not yet widely been used. With the pressure-sensitive AIRSKIN® system, cages and other safety systems are a thing of the past. Existing robots can be retrofitted with the system.
The AIRSKIN® system consists of a thin skin filled with air, which can detect the slightest pressure changes (e.g. in the event of a collision) and bring the robot to a standstill. To keep the pressure in the system constant, Blue Danube Robotics requires an ultra-compact, especially flat miniature valve, which places the highest demands on tightness as well as flow. Due to these unusual requirements, an application-specific valve solution is required.
memetis develops a micro valve which meets the requirements of Blue Danube Robotics: High flow and density in the low pressure range. And all this with the smallest dimensions!
