OC Robotics delivers snake-arm to AMRC
16 January 2012
OC Robotics has delivered a snake-arm robot to the University of Sheffield Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC). The snake-arm will be used to deliver a variety of end effectors into confined spaces, and automate processes that are currently dangerous and time consuming to perform. The Explorer-style robot will be used in research that will focus on the assembly of airframe components made from composite materials.
The flexibility and repeatability of the snake-arm robot will allow assembly tools to be delivered into aircraft components through small access holes, avoiding manual entry and enabling new assembly paradigms to increase production rate and decrease costs.
