Wroclaw University of Technology (Poland) has equipped its robot “Flash” now with the latest version of robolink® arms. Whereas only one arm was mounted in the first version, now both arms are used. The robot was unveiled in this version for the first time at the Robotville Festival in the London Science Museum in early December.

Fraunhofer Institute IFF, Magdeburg, takes part with a robolink® articulated arm in the ECHORD project
The IFF examines kinematic models with this special construction of a 4-axle articulated arm.
The structure with 3 joints in a series, wherein the rotational axes of the two first joints were shut down, is a special design.
The drive system is powered by SCHUNK® modules. A gripper is being developed in-house, and the first test results are expected by early 2012.
