By participating in this event, IKO is committed to promoting the advantages of its robot cross roller bearings as well as various robotic applications around the world.

This type of bearing provides high rigidity and a very high precision class; Our bearings can withstand complex loads in ail directions due to their angle at 45 degrees and are particularly suited to robot rotation axes and ail demanding rotary movements.

The IKO range widens with the appearance of new dimensions and now offers internai diameters from 10mm to 800mm, such as the CRBHV with its combined inner and outer ring combined structure, or even the CRBS, thin with its small transverse dimensions . The CRBFV has fixing points on the inner and outer rings with internai diameters from 10 to 115mm. LWL / ML has miniature linear guides (size 1 mm to 25mm) and provides rigidity and precision for micro-positioning applications. These miniature assemblies can be delivered with the “C-Lube” lubrication system from size 3mm.



Our crossed roller bearings have high rigidity, high accuracy and can withstand complex loads in all directions due to their 45 degree angle. They are particularly suited to robot rotation axes and to all demanding rotary movements. Our miniature linear guides can be supplied with C-Lube lubrication from 3mm.

Association Caliban

Booth : R16


Makers with Caliban

  • Sylvain Borelli, a member of Caliban, is coming with an Anki Cozmo robot and presenting his YouTube channel designed to popularize robotics.


  • Guy Feuilloley, Versatile Robot, Caliban member. Presenting several robots:
    • Mini R.E.G.I.S: The aim is to study an original means of one-wheel locomotion that, unlike current techniques, is based on the properties of the inertial gyroscope in order to simplify the stabilization control system. This mechatronics solution is advantageous in that it does not require powerful calculation resources.
    • An ultralight quadrapod with effort measurement incorporated in the leg structure. This robot is designed to study a new leg architecture that helps to sense efforts in a more natural way and to enable movements to be better adapted, while using very simple servomotors. QRIOUS seeks contact with the ground surface and also feels the weight of its leg.
    • An education kit to build a vibration-driven line-following robot. If walking or balancing on a single wheel seem too complex for you, another fun way to make a robot move could be to have it slide across the floor using vibration. This is what the Twin Bristlebot does. Here is my small contribution to the fun world of those who love minimalistic robotic mobility systems.


  • Thierry Biaujout, President of the Caliban association, presents his sumo robots and his robotic spider.


  • Raouf Ignath, Secretary of Caliban, presents Scratina, the sumo robot.


  • Bruno Motyka, Caliban member, will come with his Alpha 1S, an FPV drone and a sumobot
  • Matthieu Dewayrin, Caliban member which exposes a giant robotic hand made to be integrated on a 3m high exoskeleton arm



  • Vladimir Kadir, Caliban member, comes to expose its robot Stinger: Twice as heavy as a human, this robot is entirely made of metal!It is made mainly from recovered parts, it has a power of 400kg in the arm! It has a target recognition system that allows it to track objects or people.



  • Aymeric Weinbach will bring its Poppyrate, a humanoid robot printable in 3d. It is a derivative of the Poppy project intended to be a more affordable version in terms of price and to democratize humanoid robotics.

TBC-France is a company specialized in security equipment. TBC-France distributes SMP Robotics autonomous outdoor surveillance robots in France and Belgium, and offers all-inclusive rentai services. TBC-France aise distributes security equipment such as explosive detectors and baggage scanners.


Products & Services @Innorobo

TBC-France presents two models of autonomous surveillance robots from the S5 range of SMP Robotics. S5 robots are the first outdoor security robots that can operate in various terrain conditions. These robots are the ideal security complement for large open spaces that are difficult to cover with fixed cameras or guards rounds. The robots can discern a human being at 100 m and their highly sensitive sensors detect industrial risks (fire, gas leakage, etc.). Equipped with a full HD camera, they record the video signal in real-time and communicate with the control center.




  • Autonomous surveillance robots for outdoor usage.
  • After a first round with an operator, they carry on completely on their own.
  • 12 h / 24 km autonomy
  • PTZ camera with optical zoom
  • Surveillance range of 100 m
  • Seamless integration with existing security systems
  • Real-time video transmission and communication with the control center.
