Delta Robots

About Delta Robots

Delta robots are robots with a base connected to jointed parallelograms. These parallelograms perform motions in a solitary End of Arm Tooling (EOAT), within a workspace that is dome-shaped. This type of robot is well-known in the industrial field for its ability to execute minute, precise motions. Delta robots can be called other names in the industrial field, such as spider robots or parallel robots.

Delta robots are primarily operated when production is required for groups of objects and these objects must be placed in either an assembly pattern or inside of a container. With the addition of capable vision technologies, delta robots can properly identify and select a range of object colors, shape options and sizes. They can also use these vision technologies to pick and place working from a programmed pattern or design.

These types of robots can work with more than 100 parts per minute, picking, placing and sorting them much faster than manual labor processes are capable of performing. Their design allows them to very efficiently perform repetitive tasks at a highly consistent rate. A chief benefit of delta robots revolves around the fact that their relatively heavy motors are attached to the robot’s frame, permitting the robot’s moving parts to be very light by comparison.

Some applications of delta robots are:

  • Packing industry
  • High-precision assembly operations
  • Medical/Pharmaceutical operations
  • Food processing
  • Cosmetics
  • Soldering
  • Adhesive dispensing
