Sercos Keyboard to Join Sercos Band
A Sercos Guitar made its debut in the Sercos booth at Hannover Fair 2011 and appeared again at the 2011 SPS IPC Drives show in Nuremberg. A new Sercos Keyboard will join the guitar this year. The robotic musicians were developed and constructed by students at the University of Stuttgart with the assistance of the Institute for Control Engineering and Bosch Rexroth.
The keyboard has two hands, each with 16 fingers. They move across the keyboard on separate rails, allowing them to cross each other. To exactly hit the keys, fast horizontal movements with precise stops were a special challenge. The students installed Bosch Rexroth linear inverters, IndraDrive CS drives and bus couplers. The complex sequences are coordinated by the Sercos automation bus. The keyboard and guitar will be appearing together at several exhibitions this year, with their debut as an ensemble at Hannover Fair 2012.
