We can no longer supply the robolink output encoders.
Reason is that the chip supplier finished the production of the encoder chip. We have to block all AE Products now.
This also concerns our RL-DCi compact units. We will have to redesign those for the use of motor encoders. For the next 4-8 weeks we will not be able to supply any of these units.
We are now working on an improved output encoder version. The redesign will use another encoder chip. The new product will be available from SEP-OKT 2018 on
Our german customer Jäger Software has used a RL-D-RBT-5532S-BC Standard arm (5 DOF, big Version) for a Quality check unit for RFID Chips. The RFID’s are checked and sorted. Mr. Jäger has developped his own control solution (Hardware and Software), for further questions, please contact: email@example.com
The Video Shows one perfect application for our idea of low-cost-automation made easy with igus components (here: robolink Joint plus 2 drylin rails).
A winding unit for the production of BLDC motors. This unit was build by Commonplace Robootics, it will be used for the production of motors for our rebel prototypes!
Visit us at Hannover Show 2018 (23.4.-27.4.) in Hall 16 opposite from the “big” igus booth. We will present 3 main new product ranges, our news-flyer and new robolink catalogue can be downloaded from this post:
- robolink DCi: the robolink Standard Joint arms with INTEGRATED CPR control in 2 Versions (4 or 5 DOF),
- robolink apiro: a new Joint concept with more modularity as before (shown as protype units in operation)
- robolink rebel: something totally different from our standards, different motors, integrated electronics, but still: motion?plastcs! (shown as prototypes / design study), this development also is a cooperation with our Partner Commonplace Robotics: http://www.cpr-robots.com/
In his Bachelor Thesis, Markus Behrens did several measurements about repeatabilty and absolute precision of one igus Standard Joint arm (5 DOF, big Version): RL-D-RBT-5532S-BC-AE.
A CPR (Commonplace Robotics) control unit was used for the evaluation. The main results and further details are given in the pdf document attached. Conclusion:
