Three sets of UNISERVO are used to construct a parallel-link robot. Operators can directly teach the robot easily by moving the end effecter with a hand. Pressing force can be controlled as well, though it is very difficult with conventional parallel-link robots.
By moving the end effecter with a hand directly, an operator can easily teach a sequence of operations. It is much easier than conventional teaching method, which requires teaching pendants. Data of a complicated operation sequence can be programmed easily in a short time.
Pressing force control
In case of a conventional robot, a large force is generated when it hits an object. It is not only dangerous but can also cause a severe damage on the robot.
With UNISERVO, pressing motion can be performed safely by monitoring and controlling the pressing force.
External force detection
With the measurement and control of the torque from the output shaft of motor, detection of force acting on the movable part of Parallel Link Robot is feasible.
Collision detection function of robot ensures that safety is drastically improved.
Coordinated motion using bilateral control is made possible through local mode (hand control side) or remote mode (remote control side) of a set of 2 Parallel Link Robots.
The adjustment of force can be done by transmitting the response of remote mode handle to the hand control side.
