The only assembly robot of GROB-Werke GMBH & CO. KG based on the parallel kinematic technology is a Highly Dynamic
Handling System, called TRIAGLIDE 5g. The system is basically a modification of the popular DELTA robot
design. The difference is that actuators are Linear Motion Guides that are coplanar and parallel to each other.
Thus, the TRIAGLIDE 5g is a 3-DOF spatial parallel manipulator for translations only. Due to the small masses
moved, extremely high rates of travels and accelerations can be achieved:
| ||Axis travels in X, Y, Z: ||2,000, 500, 320 mm;|
| ||Max. rates of travel in X, Y, Z: ||6 m/s each;|
| ||Max. accelerations in X, Y, Z: ||50 m/s2 each.|
