Pick and place applications with low-cost robotics
Robotic pick and place applications are becoming increasingly popular within companies wanting to automate processes. These could be anything from simple movements to complex actions, but fundamentally they all need the same thing: to be smooth running. In this new video you can see how Igus products ranging from energy chains to linear gantries all work in harmony linked with the iRC, Igus Robot control. With an overhead camera mounted, this allows the software to accurately control the machines movemen...
