Start with core parts.
Convergence technology and parts technology.
Robot is a major convergence technology, and a single product is created by combining a variety of technologies such as machinery, electronics, and software. The final form of this convergence technology appears as fusion itself, but its beginning is made up of components, and the source of convergence technology is eventually seen as a core part technology.
Industrial multi-joint robots generally consist of three core parts: 1) precision reducer, 2) servo motor consisted of motor, encoder, and driver 3) motion controller. And the combination of these three parts usually determines the performance of the robot. However, most robot manufacturers don't currently manufacture all of these core parts by themselves, especially in the case of precision reducer, which are mostly outsourced.
We believe that the core technology of the robot is a part, and we're developing the core part technology in this point of view. We aim to have all of our own solutions for the core parts of the robot, and we continue to develop technology.
Precision cycloid reducer using elastic deformation
The precision reducer is the most expensive and difficult to manufacture among the robot's core parts. Generally, industrial robots are using RV (cycloid) type reducer and harmonic drive type speed reducer. RV-type reducers are very powerful so that they can lift heavy weights. Since the manufacturing process is relatively easy compared to Harmonic drives, they are relatively inexpensive, but are very heavy and non- miniaturized due to their structural characteristics. On the other hand, the harmonic drive type speed reducer can be manufactured small and light compared to RV type reducer. However, since the manufacturing process itself is very complicated, it is very expensive and cannot lift a lot of weight.
We have developed a reducer that can only accept the advantages of these two types of reducers. Our reducer is simpler in manufacturing process than RV reducer so that we can be manufactured at lower price, and can be made smaller and lighter like a harmonic drive. We developed an exclusive structural reducer by applying the principle of elastic dynamics used in the harmonic drive type to the driving principle of the existing cycloid drive type speed reducer.
The manufacturing process of our developed elacloid drive type reducer is simpler than existing reducer, but it still needs very sophisticated machining techniques that require precision of less than 10μm by using the cutting process. It's not just a matter of processing facilities, it's a difficult technology that can only be obtained by combining the characteristics of the equipment, the properties of the material, the structure of the moderator, and applying it to the processing process, and we can accurately process the metal with this very high precision through the processing expertise with decades of metal processing experience. Precision reducers manufactured in this way are delivered to customers with quality control through thorough performance inspection.
Open technology based real-time control software platform.
The software platform is an essential part for driving application software, and is the very basis of running various software technologies such as algorithms. The role of application software implementing control algorithms in areas that require precision control, such as industrial robots, is critical, and the role of software platforms that can reliably drive implemented application software is even more important, but the price of a proven platform that ensures high reliability is still very high.
In modern times, software is gradually developing an open platform than a closed platform, regardless of application software and software platforms, and is evolving as a result of collective intellect, which is created by the participation of more people. Thus, the use of modern software is not an independent development technology like the past, but is a kind of integrated technology that combines a number of open technologies to implement what is needed.
We used open technology to secure a very important software platform for robot control. The Raspberry Pi platform we have utilized has already sold over 19 million units in the world and has been supplemented by a number of people, and its reliability has already been guaranteed. We have built our own control software platform by combining various open technologies such as RT Preempt real-time kernel and OROCOS KDL motion control solver.
Optimized Compliance control technology.
Compliance control is the fundamental technology for the implementation of collaborative robots that have recently become a topic of discussion. The compliance control technology that enables collision detection and direct stirring must be well coordinated in terms of the measurement perspective for detecting force and control's perspective that determines how much position and force to be exported. Using expensive sensors and expensive actuators is the ideal way to reduce uncertainty, but this does not meet our philosophy of consideration of the cost-effectiveness.
So we have utilized the most of our components in order to achievee the highest cost-effectiveness and have developed a control technology that can optimize compliance control performance by optimizing a combination of measurement and control perspective. Compliance control, such as our dual channel drive mode, is a way to achieve the best stable compliance control performance at lower implementation costs, and it is a self-control technology using its own parts to guarantee the highest stability that no other company can have.
How the user can control the robot is a very important part in terms of convenience, and we're improving it through constant research. The MTP that we developed is the robot teaching software that continuously reflects improvement through UX / UI research, and it is continuously updated through the next higher version.
We are currently providing MTP free of charge to return for social for our software platform technology that we developed using open technology.
Other core parts technology.
We are currently developing technologies such as encoders and drivers (drivers) with the goal of securing all our own solutions for the core parts of robots. The value of convergence technology will continue to be developed in order to realize our belief that it exists in core parts.
