Igus robot turns a book into a real page turner

170503_IgusIf you have a suction pad, digital scanner and a robolink arm, you too can put the printed word on to the silver screen. This week’s video is an elaborate demonstration of a book scanner using a robolink articulated arm to turn the pages automatically between each page scan.

Available from Igus as a modular system, robolink opens up a world of possibilities for low-cost robotics. By using the robolink designer tool, engineers and hobbyists alike can easily combine robolink components, design individual robots and add or remove optional components. Once configured, enquire and order directly online.

The robolink designer tool currently supports robolink S and W joint components, as well as the connection modular kits robolink R and Q. The beta version also includes robolink D components.
