Using a Beckhoff-PLC to control a 4-axis IGUS-robot using the new kinematic transformation libraries.
The goal is constructing a demo pick-and-place system for IGUS to be used at demofairs. Keep in mind that this a schoolproject that has to be finished by the end of june so the demo is no fully functional yet. For now the robot can pick up one item and place it in a holder. The full system will be able to pick up four items of different colours and place it in four different holders.
US_P001 airborne ultrasonic scanner.
US_P001 ultrasonic scanner is designed for non-destructive testing of materials in the air (non-contact) using ultrasonic waves passing, reflected, plate or surface, to identify defects, material inconsistencies, and other structural or mechanical properties.
Igus bearings were used in the construction of ODO Play printer to drive its arms: Drylin T TS-04-09, guide plus TW-04-09 trolley
ODO Play printer, made by Polish Infinum 3D company was created primarily for education and small design studios. Intuitive operation, simplicity and reliability as well as the attractive appearance of stirred a lot of interest among educational institutions and micro and small businesses. Thanks its enclosed design, it is fully secure allowing its use it in educational establishments. Advantages are copyrighted design solutions, above all in electronics, which are not encountered in devices in this price category: fully automated calibration system for the working table, pause function for safety, and ensuring convenience during filament replacement, a set of support tools, micro SD card, working table with a layer of CoroPad.
Inspection Machine – 3 Axis movement of Camera with help of Linear unit and PRT Unit
In March 2011 the Fukushima nuclear power stations were severely damaged by the Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami. Three nuclear reactors were without suitable cooling and underwent a catastrophic meltdown. The clean-up and decommissioning has required thousands of scientists across the world to invent, develop and deliver new or improved techniques. Part of the planned decommission process requires the molten nuclear fuel to be removed. However, there is currently very little knowledge about the location and makeup of the fuel debris. The high radiation environments within the reactor buildings have made optical camera systems inoperable. A promising method of visualising and characterising the fuel debris is to use acoustic imaging sonar systems within the reactor buildings. This is because sonar systems are very tolerant to radiation and offer the ability to not only image the shape of fuel debris but also to look inside it. A decommissioning programme can only be advanced once the full nature of the fuel debris is known.
There therefore existed a need for a large scanning system which would allow us to position sonar probes and image simulated uranium fuel debris, nuclear reactor core components and nuclear grade pipework (shown in detail in one of the attached images). This scanning system, which employs the drylin bearings, will allow us to develop new imaging methodologies of nuclear fuel in a safe and adaptable environment.
