Come to Automatica (booth 530 hall B3) and have a look at the stiff backlash-free (mechanically or by software) robots (full size and table-top size) with micrometer repeatability. The patent-pending wrist motion gives 6DOF parallel actuation. The picture shows a simplified model of the table-top model. Imagine what it can be used for in your applications (such as machining and precision assembly). Try the stiffness of the full-size machine and compare with other robots. Welcome, the MONROE team.

Resaerch efforts towards the hyper modular PKM with networked control and fast external sensing progresses as planned. New electronic modules have been designed for back-lash elimination with integrated dual-motor control. The key mechanical components (such as ball-joints) are being enhanced for increased robustness and production, with some new (and successfully prototyped) ideas on carbon-fiber supported joint designs.System integration and interfacing with different industrial controlelrs is ongoing, with promising results. New industrial applications have been pinpointed, thereby setting the (not yet public) application needs that push the final design of the mechatronic solutions. Demonstrations and public material to be shown at Automatica 2012.
