‘Artistic’ Robot At NPE
Star Automation programmed a servo robot to paint Japanese calligraphy at NPE2018 after carefully loading the brush with ink and rinsing the brush between demonstrations.
Previous NPE shows have featured robots playing basketball and miniature golf. An imaginative display this year at NPE2018 was a robot from Star Automation, Menomonee, Wis., using a new three-axis servo head to do Japanese calligraphy.
