Company Faude GmbH from Gärtringen has equipped a robolink articulated arm as manual assistant for the data analysis. This allows customers to leave contours and read out robot coordinates and speeds. This is then used in the next step for the dosing of media (e.g. glue) in semi-automated workstations. Faude GmbH offers this arm as a complete system with the specially developed software. For more details go directly to
Here is a film (about 3 minutes), in which I briefly show how the software works and what you can do with it.
Starting today, we are offering the download of the IME software for free. Either here using the link in the blog or (latest from tomorrow) at our support & service page. Have fun with it, for any questions we are at your disposal. The demo system with software can be viewed and tested at Motek in Stuttgart (week 41) and the FAKUMA in Friedrichshafen (week 42). The circuitry of the necessary components is as follows:
… to want more, achieve more, get better. That’s the drive of progress.
We will face the challenge and help you to reach your goal more quickly.
So far we were able to offer you the following components for your complete pikchain®:
- Guide rails
- Guide wheels
- Cables and hoses
- Rotary feedthrough or friction wheel
Earlier you had to take care of the assembly, the drive, the control, the actuators, etc., yourself.
In case you require more prefabricated modules for want of time to construct your own pikchain®, we will gladly study your project and deliberate how far we can expand our delivery, if necessary up to a ready-to-use pikchain®.
You can find a planning form on the following web page
In case you have neither the time nor the desire to do even that, just call me:
02203 96 49 7208.
Want of time shouldn’t be a reason for your pikchain® project to fall by the wayside.
We take you to your goal.
To complement the film from last week, there is now a sequence that we also want to demonstrate at the MOTEK. The 5 DOF articulated arm is thereby equipped with an electric gripper from Gimatic. Next week I will explain what is needed for this assembly. You will be able to download our software from next week for free!
