Beschreibung

Performing activities autonomously and independent of human interaction during the production and handling process of goods is often achieved by robots. Since many of these handling tasks require a manipulator that reaches only a few points, a binary robot, such as the structure presented in this contribution, is suitable. These parallel robots with binary actuation can be designed at low cost and controlled by a simple programmable logic controller (PLC). Conformance of a predetermined positioning task can be achieved through the development of a synthesis approach. Furthermore, a calibration strategy based on additional components is introduced. These modules allow an adjustment of geometrical parameters to ensure positioning tasks with high accuracy.
