CNR 2014: Exhibition: Zwax (AUT): Amalettomat robot
He works as a software developer for A1Telekom, Fresnex GmbH and meo Smart Home Energy GmbH.
He had the idea for the Amalettomat when he visited the Austrian cocktail robotics festival Roboexotica for some years ago. After some drinks he became hungry and because he had a great desire for a food processing robot! he decided to build one. His first idea in 2011 was to build a pizza robot but that seemed to be too difficult. In the 2014 edition of the Amalettomat it has only gone through some minor change.
The Amalettomat is built of many parts from scrap, e.g. 2 drill motors, or a stepper motor from a printer. The frame is made of steel and aluminium profiles, most of them were lying around in our workshop, and the outer case is made of acryl.
The heart of the electronics is an Atmega controller programmed with Arduino software. Besides that there are only a stepper driver and some relays.
