tech talk tech talk FAQs: drylin ® Delta Robots drylin ® delta robots use linear motion to position their legs, which are connected mechanically in parallel. The robot's kit with optional controls is a fantastic opportunity to lower overall costs for those experienced in machine building and integration projects. drylin ® deltas are available in two sizes (360mm and 660mm) and offer these unique benefits: • Linear actuators with self-lubricating sliding plastic liners • No external lubricants required • Lightweight, maintenance-free, cost-effective system • Quieter operation compared to systems with recirculating ball bearings In addition to that, there is typically more information people want or need to know before giving our deltas a try. So, we've compiled a short list of our most frequently asked questions. Check it out. 1. What are the specs? • Positioning Accuracy: +/-0.5mm (0.02") • Workspace Diameter: ❍ 360mm (14") at a height of 75mm (3") ❍ 660mm (26") at a height of 180mm (7") • Max Load: 5kg/11lbs • Picks per Minute: ❍ 360mm: 60 picks with a 500g Payload (Roughly 1lb) ❍ 660mm: 30 picks with a 500g Payload (Roughly 1lb) • Max Speed: 3 m/s (9.8 f/s) w/48 Volt/15- Amp Power Supply Learn more at
