robolink is a joint kit system. The igus standard robolink solution is in black colour today.
Today we ask ourselves if this is the right colour for the product. Or should it be more light? One discussed solution might be SILVER (see pic).
Please give us your vote which arm you would prefer if you had the choice. thank you! In addition you might write me a mail with your personal comment or further suggestion if you like: firstname.lastname@example.org
At the FAKUMA trade show, our supplier and partner DR. BOY (http://www.dr-boy.de/) presented an injection moulding process. The automated handling of the products is operated by a 4 DOF robolink joint arm RL-D-RBT-5532-BC (igus standard product) together with a CPR control unit (http://cpr-roboter.de/produkte/igusrobot.html).
An interesting, unusual problem solution to the calculation of complicated Robolink movements is offered by www.RoBo-mac.de
The program, a Mathematical 3D joint Toolbox controls Direct and Inverse Kinematics, all parameter and measurements “of your robolink arm” can become basic inputs of the calculation. The program tool not only calculates “Pick & Place” final positions, but also individual circle and 3D spline continuous paths movements. It calculates articulated arm & gantry robotic to realize combined igus drylin & robolink motion using 3D Bézier free forms.
A free demo and test package as well as a Tutorial “INVERSE KINEMATICS & ROBOTIC” (German language) can be download at http://www.cnc-mac.de/html/download.html (pl. scroll down this page a little bit to approximately its middle position).
please watch the you tube video, Dipl.-Ing. Norbert Brodtmann from RoBo-mac will assist you in case of questions.
ALBIS is an igus customer and supplier: http://www.albis.com/
At FAKUMA fair, they presented a very nice “demo plastic factory”, using our 4 DOF robolink arm RL-D-RBT-3322-BC as manipulator. The complete project has been realised by the training workshop at Albis (“AZUBI” project). Very nice demonstration!
