Whether for powerful handling or careful lifting, forceful press-fitting or gentle nudging, human beings often need to use certain opposed muscle groups. This principle of an agonist and antagonist has been applied in technical terms to all seven articulated joints of the BionicCobot. The new drive concept allows the potential force, and thus also the degree of rigidity, of the robotic arm to be specified precisely. The BionicCobot is operated intuitively via a specially developed graphical user interface. Users can teach-in and parameterize the required actions very easily using a tablet.

Friendly and human-like, this robotic arm harmoniously joins design and engineering. The design of this smart and adaptable robot is non-intimidating. We admire the high=quality execution of all details. Very well done!
