A delta robot, otherwise known as a parallel robot, is a commonly used robot in pick and place and packaging applications. The design and construction of the delta robot lends itself to extremely fast picking and placing of a variety of parts. Most delta robots consist of three arms connected to universal joints at the base and are driven by coordinated servo control. It is this lightweight construction and low inertia that allows the servo control to achieve the very high pick and place rates.
With the addition of a vision system, a delta robot becomes an extremely flexible pick and place tool. Vision adds the ability to track the position of parts on a conveyor and anticipate the precise picking location. Parts can now be picked at any location or orientation on the conveyor and be placed into a variety of locations, including into a package, onto a pallet or another conveyor, and many other applications.
