Low-Cost Robotics

The winner of the Low Cost Robotics Innovation Competition had an idea for a time-saving automation in 3D printing,
Robert Hofmann GmbH convinced the jury. The prize, a voucher for €3,000 for a robolink D robot arm by igus® is supposed to make this concept come true. The low-cost robot would be used in the company's training centre. This innovation is supposed to make the manual exchange of building panels in the company's own 3D printer unnecessary.

robolink at the University of Heidenheim

With robolink, yes supports young mechanical engineers.
At the University of Heidenheim, a team of six young mechanical engineering students built a robot as a project, which can assemble parts independently and reconstruct its own basic structure. The journey was the destination: within three months, the robot had to be developed, constructed and programmed by the team itself. A 5-axis articulated robot was chosen as it offers a wide range of applications due to its exchangeable end module.
