At the MOTEK show in Stuttgart (GER), we will present the following MAIN news for robolink:
Our current 4 DOF joint kit system will be enlarged by a fifth axis (“hand rotation”). This will be achieved with our NEW strain wave gear box RL-S-17 in combination with an igus NEMA11 stepper motor. From next week on we will be able to offer and suplly 5 DOF joint arms with our lightweight, lubrication free joint system. Please find attached our latest NEWS brochure (as pdf) with latest news on page 8, 14-15 and 22-23.
This video from CEMAT fair in GER shows our idea of low cost automation perfectly.

We are world champion again!!! In a very intense, tough, and thrilling game, we were finally successful! The final score after the second half was 0:0! Both teams had a few chances to score. Both teams had the ball already on the opponent’s goal line, we scored just 1 second after (!!!!) the end of the first half!
In the following penalty shootout, we scored with our first three shots, UT Austin Villa failed all three of their shots (one was blocked by our goalie, one touched before the kick, one missed the goal).
After having won two more round robin games in the morning (7:0 against the RoboCanes from Miami and 8:0 against DAInamite from Berlin), we reached the quarter final as winner of our round robin group. The quarter final was played in the afternoon and we were able to win again. Our game against the UPennalizers ended 10:0! This means that we will play in the semifinal on Sunday. Our opponents will be the team UChile.
In addition, the final scores of the drop-in competition were announced. In both categories – game score and judge score (the human judges award points for the cooperation with the teammates) – we reached the maximum score and thus won this competition!
