New robot lends precision and reliability to the production of hearing aids, says Oticon
Hearing aid device manufacturer Oticon required a more flexible robot to handle the tiny hearing device components in its production.
The company had been using robot technology for the past 10 years. But, as the minute components became increasingly smaller in order to make the hearing aids more comfortable, the existing two- and three-axis robots used in manufacturing were no longer suitable.
They could not perform the required lateral and vertical movements sufficiently. If for instance a small part is stuck in a mould, the robot should be dexterous enough to tip it out. [Read more…] about Oticon uses Universal Robots machine to manipulate tiny little components inside hearing aid
