Mikrolar R3100 Rotopod


Featuring more powerful motors, our patented rotary-style parallel robot is capable of rotational speeds of 400º per second. This system design is often used for simulation and medical research where rotation, speed, and accuracy are all necessary. 


While maintaining all of the benefits of the R3000 Rotopod (360 or more degrees of rotation, stiffness, accuracy inherent of a Stewart Platform, etc) the R3100 is an upgraded model built for speedThe newest version in the R-Series line is fast, attaining a speed of up to 400 degrees per second. It continues to use the same Nexen Ring, THK rail, and Hephaist joints as the R3000, but improved with a larger motor and Onvio gearboxes for the sole purpose of moving around the ring as quickly as possible. The R3100 has easily become the quickest, high-payload-capable Parallel Robot on the market.

This system has often found its application in medical research thanks to its speed and repeatability. If you would like to learn more about a few of these research projects, see our page on Bio-Mechanical Applications. You can also find a video playlist of our medical customers on our Youtube channel. 

All of our robots use the same core software; how you communicate with them is up to you. With the use of the same simple user interface as every other Mikrolar robot, you will find operating and programming this Hexapod to be both simple and straight-forward. Whether you wish to use a language you are already familiar with such as G-code, or you require a custom designed solution such as feedback from exterior measuring devices, Mikrolar can write a custom interface to suit your needs.
