Abstract

The present study reports a novel concept for flexible robot manipulators focusing in low cost construction. The proposed flexible robot arm was designed for pick and place applications of light weight products. The robot arm is actuated by the use of two DC motors and one stepping motor. And a wire connected to the stepping motor is used for controlling the bending position of the flexible link. The vibration of the end tip of the flexible link is reduced by the action of the pulling wire. Preliminary experimental results regarding the flexible link are presented. © 2013 IEEE.
