Inverta 8: 6-DoF Parallel Robot Training Cell

A Laboratory Unit

INVERTA-8 is an all-in-one table-top platform especially built for skill building of industrial users, students at academic institutes, and research labs. It includes a 6-RSS parallel platform HEXA-4 in inverted configuration and an inbuilt controller PC that can easily be programmed for pick-and-place operation. It comes with a fully-featured Graphical User Interface (GUI) that can be used to demonstrate motion in Cartesian workspace interactively through a wireless mouse, and keyboard, or a 6-DoF Joystick. All the runtime parameters like joint angles, end-effector position, homogeneous transformation matrix, etc. can be observed.

It can demonstrate pre-programmed trajectory simulations like a spiral, Lissajous, helical, precession, and Simple Harmonic Motions of its end-effector. Also, it can demonstrate point-to-point motion using standard joint trajectories like cycloidal, quintic, cosine, and cubic. The plot for the joint velocities and accelerations is generated for any motion demonstrations. The end-effector tool position can be set to any point within the workspace which is widely used to demonstrate Tool Centre Point (TCP) Calibration algorithm working and is widely used in any industrial application.

Tele Manipulation

Pick and Place Operation

The programming interface includes the Application Programmers Interface (API) which is built over Python language which is widely accepted as a programming language for robotics research. It comes with a Lab. Manual with almost 10 experiments and a wide range of example codes including Internet of Things (IoT) demonstrations. 

With its open architecture, it can be extended for a wide range of research applications.

The top platform can be ordered with any customized shape to accommodate a different end-effectors tool depending on any unique application planned by the user. By default, the hardware can be selected among five different sizes of the first link.
