Robot arm with human motion dynamics

For many jobs carried out in production, people wish they had a third hand. When doing soldering work, for example, the soldering iron must be held in one hand and the solder wire in the other, leaving no hand free for the workpiece. The BionicCobot developed by Festo can help precisely with such assistance activities and relieve the employee by acting as a “third arm” or “third hand”. It can grip, hold and rotate the workpiece – whatever is required for the relevant application.
