Robots are made in various shapes and sizes and generally their load carrying capacity depends up on their size and strength. An average human sized robot is capable of carrying a load of more than 100 pounds and can also move it very quickly at the rate of +/-0.006 inches. One of their major advantages is that they can work continuously for days and years at a stretch without developing any fault. Due to this persistent accuracy robots are fast becoming indispensable part of various industrial set-ups. Most often these robots are used for repetitive painting, welding and operations like picking up and placing products into the machines.
Before I get into specifics, I’ll mention what this technology does and how it works. Day Trading Robot is a stock trading system which makes use of mathematical algorithms based on real trading techniques used by real traders to analyze market data and look for profitable trading opps. Once it’s found what it deems as being a high probability trading opportunity, it notifies you so that you can trade accordingly.
