Delta Robots and control systems from integrator Step Design

Step Design Ltd is offering pre-assembled Delta Robots (featuring Drylin technology) and associated control systems, to include motion controllers and servo/stepper drives. Various options are available, both dedicated and bespoke. These can be integrated within new or existing machines, and Step Design's services range from design, specification and integration, through to installation, test and commissioning.

Step Design specialises in the supply of high-quality, low-cost automation, together with robust control systems that are designed and built to meet customers' requirements and expectations.

The overall success of each complete system is made possible by developing the partnership and working relationships that exist with all suppliers and equipment. By creating strong relationships with both customers and suppliers, including providers of ancillary equipment, Step Design ensures complete seamless integration of the entire production cell.

Step Design says it has access to the very best servo motor control systems and associated mechanical options to include the igus range. igus is providing Step Design with access to a complete range of products specifically for the Delta Robot drylin and all of the associated mechanical options. The products offered are both technically sound and proven automation products.

The modular delta robot kit has been designed and developed for simple and automated pick-and-place, assembly and sorting tasks. It comes with a calibrating pin for easy positioning at the zero point and product pickup location. It is directly fixed to the mounting hub and simplifies the initial calibration process, providing a cost-effective and lightweight modular system.

Advantages of drylin delta robots include:

  • Lubrication-free and maintenance-free drylin W toothed belt axes
  • Pick rate of 60/min due to lightweight components made of plastic and aluminium
  • Workspace up to 360mm diameter
  • If required the robot can be pre-assembled, including transport frame or installation kit
  • Precise positioning due to motors with encoders
  • Adapter plate for connection to T-slot profiles
  • Optional safe cable guidance for multi-dimensional movements with e-chain TRC.30/TRE.30 triflex R series
  • Possibility of adaptation

Whether launching a new product or replacing outdated controls on an existing product, Step Design's engineering team works closely with customers to tailor robotic control packages to suit the hardware. The components of the control packages, which consist of software, signal generator, drive electronics, motors and accessories, can be mixed, matched and customised to drive almost any hardware.
