This research aims to develop a prototype of 3-DOF robot that use for pick and place objects with high speed movement and low cost to produce, named parallel robot or delta robot. The robot can approach special applications with fast and smooth control. Thus, it is easy to movement in different positions. It is suitable for transporting workpieces or be able to move in various points. The payload can be up to 500 g. In current application, it can be applied to the food manufacturing industry. Therefore, the robot prototype can be used for food industry companies or related industries field. The project has co-operative from both public sector and private sector. The research and development are conducted by the researchers from the public sector. The private sector provides support materials and equipment. After producing a prototype, the test is carried out by the private sector, evaluates the performance and satisfaction of users to use. When the prototype is completed, the private sector can be commercialized to market in the future.
