The fruit of co-development between TRDC and MEIDENSHA CORPORATION, a CFRP Auto-drive robot frame, has been successfully delivered.
Originally weighed around 20kg, handling the frame was quite a labour. After an in-depth consultation, ascertaining the design concept, usage conditions and performing an analysis we successfully realized a CFRP frame that exhibits the strength, stiffness and lightness of carbon fibre's signature characteristics. With the shift to CFRP, the final weight of the product came down to only 3.5kg.
We have received an excellent review from Meidensha and are confident in forging forward with the co-development for mass production of this product.
