OVERVIEW

ACROME Delta Robot, with its accessible and student-familiar components, can empower your robotics and automation laboratory. Completely open-source software makes it possible for students and researchers to modify, create and test their own algorithms for complex applications. With the extensive courseware students can easily understand the complex inverse kinematics algorithms and cover both motion control architectures and vision guided robotic jobs for industrial parallel kinematic applications. The courseware helps students learn robotic control and vision guidance from scratch and opens a door to the world of artificial intelligence, process optimization and Industry 4.0. ACROME Delta Robot can move parts by its magnetic end-effector so it is well suited for Pick-and-Place operations, which are performed millions of times per day by modern robots.

FAQs

What is Delta Robot?
The Delta Robot is a 3-Degrees of Freedom precision parallel robotic arm. In general it is moving its end-effector in X, Y, Z coordinates.
What is a Delta Robot used for?
Delta Robots are mostly used for pick & place sorting operations. They can also be used for 3D printing and touch interaction operations.
How many degrees of freedom does a Delta Robot have?
3-DOF or more. Mostly X, Y, Z and combination of X & Y and rotation motions. ACROME Delta Robot uses the X, Y, Z method.
Can I use a custom motion pattern? How?
The example software have a built-in kinematics solver. The user only needs to send the desired 3-DoF coordinates to create a custom motion pattern.
Does the product comes with a controller and software/courseware?
Product comes with the controller and software. Courseware is optional with choice of the programming language.
Is there any after-sales support or training for the product?
A complimentary online support session is available after the delivery of the products. Standard support is provided via the phone, e-mail or remote desktop connection.
