Basic stationary types of robots

There are five main types of industrial robots: Cartesian, Articulate, SCARA, Cylindrical and Spherical. However, there are several types of robot´s configuration in open and close kinematic chains, like parallel robots.

Scara Lightweight-Robot

The SCARA acronym stands for Selective Compliance Assembly Robot Arm or Selective Compliance Articulated Robot Arm.
The robot was developed under the guidance of Hiroshi Makino, a professor at the University of Yamanashi.

Cylindrical Lightweight-Robot

A robot in which the degrees of freedom of the manipulator arm are defined chiefly by cylindrical coordinates.
The robot can perform this motion by extending a cylinder that's built into the arm.

Articulated Lightweight-Robot

An articulated robot is a robot with rotary joints; they can range from simple two-jointed structures to systems with 10 or more interacting joints.
Most of this robots in the world are designed for heavy, repetitive manufacturing work.

Spherical Lightweight-Robot

Spherical robot is a robot with two rotary joints and one prismatic joint.
The robots have an arm which forms a spherical coordinate system.

Cartesian Lightweight-Robot

A cartesian coordinate robot is an industrial robot whose three principal axes of control are linear.
Gantry robots are also called Cartesian or linear robots.

Revolute parallel Lightweight-Robot - Delta

A delta robot is a type of revolute parallel robot. It consists of three arms connected to universal joints at the base.
The key design feature is the use of parallelograms in the arms, which maintains the orientation of the end effector.

Spherical Parallel Lightweight-Robot

The spherical parallel manipulator consists of two bodies connected through three in-parallel legs such that any motion of the end-effector is always on a sphere.
The 3-RRR SPM has parallel singularities within its workspace.

Prismatic Parallel Lightweight-Robot

The prismatic parallel manipulator consists of 3 linear actuators placed vertically in the fixed platform. It is also know Delta robot.
The result of it parallel manipulator has a wide range of motions capability.
Colombia - 2018

Spatial Parallel Lightweight-Robot

The spatial parallel manipulator consists of 3 linear actuators placed on each coordinate axis like a fixed platform.
The result of it parallel manipulator has a fast motion capability.
Colombia - 2019

Planar Parallel Lightweight-Robot

The planar parallel manipulator consists of 3 linear actuators and 3 rotary actuators connected with 6 arms to one fixed and one mobile platforms.
The result of this parallel manipulator are several constrains on its workspace.
Colombia - 2019

Parallel Stewart Lightweight-Robot

A Gough-Stewart platform is a type of parallel robot that has six prismatic actuators, attached in pairs to three fixed positions on the platforms.
Devices placed on the top platform can be moved in six degrees of freedom.
Colombia - 2018

Spherical Haptic Parallel Lightweight-Robot

The spherical haptic parallel manipulator consists of 3 rotary actuators with encoders connected by 6 angular link-bars from one fixed to one mobile platform.
The workspace result is external sphere motion, it could be used as 3D mice.
