Abstract [en]

The spring-assisted gantry robots, described in this paper, were designed primarily for the rapid transfer of lightweight objects from one point to another, e.g. to pick objects from a conveyor belt and to place them in a box. The average amount of work required for pick-and-place operations carried out by a conventional gantry robot was decided. Springs were added to conserve the kinetic energy of the main bar, which slides in the X-direction and the work of the same pick-and-place operation was decided. A theoretical study showed that when the spring constant was optimized the required motor work of the spring-assisted robots were 42-95 percent less than the required work of the conventional robot. The conceptual robot exists in mathematical models in Matlab and SIMULINK.
