ParaPicker® Robots


ParaPicker® PP03 are super-dynamic parallel kinematic robots with linear drive technology.

♦ the history

In 2005 we first introduced a two-axis parallel kinematic robot, that used linear motors as actuators.
This was the begining of our ParaPicker® technology!

Based on the established HighDynamic® linear motor modules, the 4-axis ParaPicker® industrial robot PP03 was developed and was first introduced in 2010 at the MOTEK fair in Stuttgart.
See the presentation on the right.

the name

  • Para stands for the parallel arrangement of the actuators
  • Picker stands for the typical tasks

the advantages

  • the dynamics
  • the force in Z-axis
  • small installation surface
  • no moving cables for the drives
  • low reaction forces & vibration
  • the price


  • in 2011 ParaPicker® participated in the robotics award at the Hannover fair and was under the top ten applicants!

  • 8 - 32 A output current
  • selection of positioning tasks with freely definable motion profiles over I/O’s or fieldbusses
  • oscillating motion
  • analog position target 0 - 10 V
  • pulse & direction inputs
  • master-booster or gantry mode
  • master-encoder synchronization
  • streaming mode
  • input for external high-resolution positioning sensor
  • variable homing modes
  • Safe Torque Off (STO)
  • fieldbusses EtherCAT, POWERLINK, PROFINET, SERCOS III, TCP/IP, Profibus-DP, CANOpen, DeviceNet
  • licence-free configuration tool LinMot-Talk
  • controller configuration according to motor and application data
