Company RoVi Robot Vision uses our small version 5 DOF robolink arm with DC motors for their Demo of a camera-based sensorless robot arm, more info: http://www.rovi-robotics.de/
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).
We not only build robots and robot parts, our joints are also used f.ex. in format adjustments. The video link shows an example from a packaging machine, the 2nd film shows an igus demo unit. In this case, the RL worm shaft can be coupled from one joint to another. USPs: running dry, light weight, modular !
Hannover show (HMI) was a great succes for igus and robolink department especiallly! New records in numbers everywhere. I will share new informations within the next days and weeks (videos, data sheeets, STEP data, …). Starting today with a video of our igus “factory automation unit” how we showed it on the booth. It shows a real application in our factory in cologne, e-chain parts are placed for automatic assembly with a robolink joint arm (RL-D-RBT-5532S-BC with 5 DOF) plus a drylin linear system for adjustment (rotation).
The 2nd video comes from a neighbour booth, company RUBICON AUTOMATION, they show a belt system plus automation with robolink 5 DOF “smalll arm” (RL-D-RBT-3322S-AC).
