R18 delta robot arm
R18 is a low cost entry to high speed pick and place robotics, fast, accurate and reliable and easy to program. It is extremely fast. The mechanics are a standard Igus delta robot assembled by ST and coupled with ST controller and software - simple and phenomenally reliable.
The robot features all Drylin plastic bearings. The arms are light metal tubes terminating in frictionless spherical bearings.
The R18 delta uses high power, high speed, high efficiency stepping motors with intelligent micro-stepping for both power and speed and for low speed precision when required. Each motion of the robot is monitored by encoders that stop all motion in the event of a collision or other problem. The package includes the latest robot controller that is simple and reliable using a partnership of CPU and DSP micro-processors and intelligent MOSFET drives. ROBOFORTH II embedded software gets you started easily yet permits the most complex motions, interfaces and peripherals to be programmed, assisted by ROBWIN project manager that brings everything together on one Windows screen. Everyone who uses this system agrees it is both flexible and really easy to use.
The 4th axis is an option so products can be turned during motion.
