R15 (Artemis) Modular Cartesian robot system, 2 to 6 axes.


R15 is a complete linear robot system, tailor-made from a range of modules for almost any workspace and payload.
R15I is built using Igus drylin axes for a cost effective solution.

Stepping motor drives with optical incremental encoders
Steel reinforced polyurethane drive belts
Maintenance free Igus Drylin linear axes.
Programmable axis calibration sequence
Simple teach pad, optional wireless teach console
Optional turbo, continuous path, constant velocity
Input/output interfacing
Handshaking or direct control of other equipment, pneumatics etc.
Searching, analog measurements, timing etc.
Extra drives for turntables etc.
Non-volatile memory, turnkey option.
Complete with controller, manuals, software, cables, etc. Ready to go
Optional cleanroom preparation

R15 systems are built to order after exact specifications are agreed with the customer. Used for handling, positioning, gluing, trimming and numerous other industrial and laboratory applications. Rugged and reliable, fast, accurate, easy to interface and program.
All STI robot systems are programmed in ROBOFORTH II which provides tools for synchronising robot motion with other equipment, handshaking, direct control of pneumatics, palletizing and so on.

IGUS Linear robot system

For smaller systems we now use the Igus modular system with drylin linear axes.

Married to the ST Robotics K11R robot controller the result is a low cost solution
with the same ST features as other ST Robots superior to Igus' controller.

Assembly of fuel injection for a well known German car manufacturer using L-axis module, moving carriage, K-axis module, moving carriage and D axis module, moving beam. Swabbing in nuclear facility using two robots, one robot (lower) employs L, K and M axis modules. M is a telescopic axis with a yaw, not shown above. This robot passed swabs to a second robot (upper) built with L and K axis modules which passes the swab out through an electric shield door to a glove box.

Below: X-Y robot for high speed gluing comprising 2 L-type X-axes of 3000mm stroke
and a spanning K-type Y-axis of 2500mm stroke arranged in an H-shape.
With constant velocity software it moves the same set speed in any direction, max 2000mm/sec.
