Could a robot serve your morning cuppa?
Engineers and scientists of DLR (German aerospace centre) in Oberpfaffenhofen are engaged in the robotics of tomorrow, in particular 'the gentle hand'. The human hand is a wonder of nature: what seems apparent to us becomes, on closer inspection or under a technical simulation, a highly complex entity. The complex boards are produced on the Essemtec SMT assembler Paraquda in a highly flexible environment.
