Developers, enthusiasts and geeks looking for an affordable four and six axis robotic arm that can be fully programmed to carry out a wide variety of different applications may be interested in the new GLUON desktop robotic arm powered by INNFOS SCA QDD Lite. Check out the demonstration video below to learn more about the construction, components and features of the GLUON robotic arm which is now available to back via Kickstarter with earlybird pledges available from $579.
The powerful robotic arm can lift up to 1kg in weight and includes features such as collision detection, teaching mode, hyper motion performance and strengthened components.
“GLUON is an innovative creation. This robotic arm can perform much more complicated actions without being bulky and expensive. INNFOS integrated motor, drive, encoder and reducer in an all-in-one design jazzed-up actuator that created GLUON. The smart compliant actuator is called INNFOS SCA that breakthroughs the old limits of service robotic industry. “
“INNFOS GLUON is based on a highly integrated smart compliant actuator: INNFOS SCA QDD Lite. It is the core joint actuator of most high-end service robots and an important part of the leading trends in robotics development. GLUON is designed with INNFOS latest QDD SCA Lite series smart compliant actuators with powerful features.”
“Thanks to integrated custom motor control electronics and optimized algorithms, SCA’s position, velocity, torque and impedance can be directly regulated without any additional components. Besides, it is also possible to realize functions like impact resistance or collision detection using SCA without extra fragile sensors. Thus, with a series of SCAs, INNFOS GLUON can handle multiple tasks with human-like flexibility.”
