Apple files patent application for 5-axis robotic arm | Patently Apple


curated by | March 30, 2014

Last Thursday the US Patent & Trademark Office published a patent application from Apple that reveals that they’re seeking protection for a newly advanced five axis robotic arm used in the manufacture of their new Mac Pro. Apple’s Senior Vice President Operations Jeff Williams states in a video presented below that in order to make the advanced Mac Pro Tower, Apple had to pioneer entirely new processes. Of course one of them relates to Apple’s new robotic arm.

Apple isn’t (yet) into robotics for its own sake, but they’ve apparently become more than just a consumer of industrial robots.
