NEW robolink info brochure

Martin Raak | 18. September 2014

This new 16 page brochure tells the story and current state of the robolink development at igus. It contains some technical informations and describes the possibilities of our joint kit system, it is not a replacement of our catalogue, that you can still find in the “Support & service” section.

pick + place of petri dishes with robolink D unit

Martin Raak | 26. August 2014

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. Vote Up +0 Vote Down […]

soft robot II

Martin Raak | 24. July 2014

Here is another example of a “soft” application. In this case, I only programmed the START and the END position by “teach in”. 2 or 3 intermediate positions have roughly been teached (without any precision). The Robot arm does not know anything about “inverse kinematics”, circle mathematics and so on. The movement is possible, because […]
