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.
Company Commonplace robotics from GER shows a quick and simple control solution for our modular joint kit. It consists of a set of electronics (incl. stepper motor drivers) and a WINDOWS software package.
More details can not yet be announced, as this is a brand new solution, but we will check more facts within the next weeks. The product is available at Commonplace robotics GmbH:
In this case petri dishes shall be placed and displaced from a storage. We used our RL-D demo unit to show its ability for this task. The programming was done with our IME Software. As always, there is no inverse kinematics or path planning executed. The single positions have been teached.
once again I want to link to Malte Ahlers homepage and 2 of his Videos from his robot project ADAM A1. Now he is really running the 5DOF arm and he is using the 2nd one as teach-in arm. The movement speed and reaction time between left and right arm really impress me!
