Demaurex SA (Demaurex), a leading Swiss robotics company and pioneer of high speed pick and place robotics, and Genesis Robotics and Motion Technologies today signed a Joint Development Agreement (JDA) to integrate Genesis Robotics’ revolutionary LiveDriveTM Direct-Drive Motors into Demaurex’s latest generation “Delta Robot Systems.”
Demaurex engineered and industrialized the original Delta robot in 1988, based on a patent of Prof. Reymond Clavel of the Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne (EPFL), introducing high speed, vision guided product pick and place systems to the robotics market for the first time.
The Demaurex and Genesis Robotics’ collaboration to develop this latest generation system represents a significant leap forward in the field of parallel kinematics, as two powerful technologies combine for the first time.
“Demaurex’s Delta Robotic machines and systems have been the class leader for many years, and with the incorporation of LiveDrive Direct-Drive Motors we will continue to hold that position well into the future,” said Frank Souyris, General Manager at Demaurex SA. “The LiveDrive technology offers new levels of simplicity and ease of use, eliminating the need for costly, bulky and unhygienic gearboxes all in a much smaller envelope. This will result in reducing the total cost of ownership and promoting ease of implementation for our customers.”
Chris Di Lello, CEO of Genesis Robotics and Motion Technologies said: “We are honoured to work with Demaurex SA as we believe that this collaboration demonstrates the powerful outcome that can be achieved when two companies with shared values, an intense desire to improve on the status-quo, and a deep respect for each other work together in true partnership.”
