our customer four stars engineering systems (http://www.4stars-es.com/) uses RL-D joints for an automated quality check for printed cicuit boards. The shown unit is a four stars product, named robostar and can be ordered there (http://www.4stars-es.com/products/robostar-2/).
in older posts, I presented our current solution for pick+place of e-chain parts. Cycle time of 5-6 sec/pick is the most critical issue (we can not operate much faster due to missing stiffness of the igus arm). We now solve this issue by using our arms on drylin rails, in addition we use 2 units to […]
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 […]
