Mr. O.E. Lanz
Brown, Boveri and Company, Limited
Dear Mr. Lanz:
Enclosed is our current literature on our computer controlled
manipulator systems. Vicarm manipulators systems can be ordered with any
number of degrees of freedom, as the entire actuation unit for each joint
is at the joint. To date we have delivered manipulators to a number of
corporate research groups such as yours, but because of our limited
service and support capability we have discouraged immediate industrial
application of our system.
Within the next few weeks, Vicarm will be merging with Unimation,
Inc. of Danbury, Conn.,U.S.A. As a result of this merger, we will be
developing a new version of our manipulator with an industrial rating.
This new manipulator will not be available in Europe until sometime in 1978.
In the meantime you may order our current research system, with the
understanding that the service and support are limited. Delivery on our
model Stanford or M.I.T. system is 5 months.\.
