NOT full of hot air; a Non-pneumatic Collision Sensor
Solution in Reach.
Said medical testing company comes to ARI and asks about developing a solution. Applied Robotics engineering designs a non-pneumatic collision/compliance device. The unit provides the compliance along the z axis, tilt in the x-y plane and zero rotation. The device is designed to fault at very low axial and tilt deflections while remaining compliant after the fault is detected to prevent damage to fragile payloads.
Development of the non-pneumatic collision/compliance device compliments ARI’s existing QuickSTOP line of collision sensors by providing customers precise fault detection while eliminating the costs associated with supporting and dealing with air supplies. This non-pneumatic solution allows users to protect fragile and expensive equipment (and sensitive fluids) and provide continuous operability due to its independence of compressor failures. This baby is now a customer specific design for a new line of medical testing stations.
