The BioRob X4-SR 4 Degree of Freedom Robotic Manipulator is a new type of robot arm based on an antagonistic, series elastic actuation concept inspired by elastic muscles / tendons in human arms. It boasts an excellent payload to dead weight ratio with admirable reach and speed, high inherent safety and an energy-saving control, comparable to that of a human arm.
Conventional robots with payloads of up to 5 kg and a similar range usually have a dead weight of five or even ten times bigger than the payload. This is due to the massive construction in order to avoid any inaccuracy of the robot. Thanks to the lightweight design the BioRob arm has a dead weight between 3 and 5 kg, depending on the model. This is possible because the motors and the drives are place in the basis of the robot. Therefore there aren't any heavy parts in the arm itself. The antagonistic design relieves the structure and allows to lower the dead weight even more.
Due to its lightweight design and compliant structure, the BioRob robotic arm is able to work in areas directly surrounding human workers. No expensive or laborious safety systems (such as fence, safety light barrier or other sensors) are needed. It can be used for cooperative applications to support a human worker in his daily tasks.
The BioRob arm already fulfills the need of a lightweight yet robust robotic arm capable of being mounted on a mobile platform. Because of its lightweight design and low inertia, the energy consumption is reduced enormously. The average energy consumption is around 15-20 Watts (controller and power electronics already included).
