Robotic Medical Arm

The customer was in search of a joining solution for a part made of stainless steel for a robotic medical arm.

This was a new application being developed by the customer. They were in search of a dependable and precise machine in order to secure their workpieces together. The criteria for this work piece was a secure, reliable end effector with the ability to rotate freely.

BalTec was able to form the small diameter using the RN-151 machine. Due to the low force of the RN-151 and the precise control of the HPP-25, we were able to control the forming distance of the rivet to 0.1 mm. The end result was a secured arm and gripper, thus creating an appropriate end effector.
