By Brian Huse, Director, Marketing & PR, Robotic Industries Association

Parallel (a.k.a. Delta) robots have been around for years but they have such an unconventional look many still consider them to be new in the industry. They are fun to see in action which is no doubt a factor in why FESTO made one entirely from their own components.

I had the good fortune to visit the FESTO Road Show and see their proof of concept for a parallel robot.
