Our german customer MATRIUM GmbH has designed and built this automation unit with a huge number of igus components such as drylinE rails, e-chains, chainflex, tribotape and also robolink. It runs today in daily operation. The robolink arm consists of 2 joints (size -20 and -30) and performs a “simple” scara movement.
The complete unit is 5,50 x 3,70 m big, it serves to sort so called JEDEC-Trays for recycling / re-use, ~ 2.500 different trays can be recognized and sorted after the vision learning phase!
More information and contact data: MATRIUM GmbH, http://www.matrium.de, Mr. Eikel is the responsible engineer.
Company Commonplace robotics from GER shows a quick and simple control solution for our modular joint kit. It consists of a set of electronics (incl. stepper motor drivers) and a WINDOWS software package.
More details can not yet be announced, as this is a brand new solution, but we will check more facts within the next weeks. The product is available at Commonplace robotics GmbH:
the video shows our internal factory automation unit with RL-D and RL-S joints in a standard 5 DOF robolink arm.
the shown price label is for the complete 5 DOF arm with motors, joints, connections, cables and chains, fully mounted (like shown) but WITHOUT gripper (suction cup) and WITHOUT control parts. In this case we use a BECKHOFF control unit to run the process and place the parts in the correct way.
