Stratum Networks is a computer aided kinematically driven robot that can be used for rapid prototyping and fabrication. Its most basic logic and methodology are applicable to scale at an architectural level. It is a tool for digital and physically simulated speculation and has been designed for re-adaptaion and indeterminacy.
Delta Robots are a type of Parallel robot. Their use has been standardized in both the automotive industry and in packaging lines. Delta robots have a high level of precision, and a speed that is ideal for a wide range of uses. The triangulation of the three delta arms produce kinematic chains that supply three degrees of freedom, x,y and z. The delta Robot uses parallelograms that restrict the movement of the toolhead. The positioning of all mechanical actuations (motors) are located at the base of the robot which allows for the robot positioning arms to have a small inertia. Delta robots can be made from a relatively small amount of parts and mechanical connections, which makes them ideal for many applications. They are easy to fabricate and have very little weight. With very little math and proportional relationships, delta robots can be programed for many purposes.Max Sanchez
