The Delta Robot is one of the fastest robots in the world. Invented by Reymond Clavel it was inspired and aimed at the chocolate industry (a very serious business in Switzerland) As it is usual the case for innovative concepts it took a while to catch on but today it is one of the most advanced packaging robots with a huge variety of versions. Its concept also has applications to other sectors, where extreme speed and accuracy is needed, like medical robots. The initial concept has three articulated arms and three motors that move a gripper in the 3 dimensional space while keeping it always perfectly parallel to the ground. You can read more about the Delta robot at this article by EPFL. We had previously featured Legolas, a high-precision robotic mechanism inspired by Delta robot.
