Igus Offers Low Cost Automation with 5-Axis Articulated Arms

At Motek, the motion plastics specialist will present a predefined, assembled robolink D system in two new versions


Bangalore, Karnataka -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/26/2017 -- Simple configuration, quick acquisition, immediate connection – the entry into the world of igus low-cost robotics is that easy. This is made possible by the new 5-axis kinematics from the robolink D series. Offered as an assembly kit consisting of arm, motor and gearbox, or now as a ready-to-connect articulated arm, users are given the opportunity to implement their own automation systems.

Robots are taking over in automation tasks more and more. Last year, sales of industrial robots exceeded the 245,000 pieces, which marks a new record. At the same time, interest is also growing in simple and inexpensive robotics solutions. In the area low-cost automation, with the robolink D igus offers users the ability to easily increase their productivity with a flexible robot kit. At the 2016 Motek, the motion plastics specialist will present a new 5-axis robot kit, which is also available as a preassembled arm, in hall 4, stand 4310.

Self-configured or pre-assembled

Thanks to the modular combination of the robolink articulated arm, motor and gearbox, the customer receives a system that can be assembled and used for a variety of robotic tasks. In addition, it is possible to combine motors and joints in several installation sizes with standard control systems for a complete robot made of plastic and aluminium. As pre-defined 5-axis kinematics with robolink D-joints, beside the igus stepper motors and metal parts as connecting system, igus e-chains and chainflex cables with a 36-month guarantee are also used. The motors can be controlled with commercially available control modules and the centre distances can be modified by changing the connecting parts. The robolink DC is available as a 5-axis model in two options: a small version with a load capacity of up to 0.5 kg and a larger version with up to 2.5 kg. The system can also be ordered as a subassembly, for example as a rotary unit, swivel unit or 2-axis swivel arm. The prefabricated arm is light and easily configured, and are as interesting for robot manufacturers and machine builders just as for system integrators and automation in all industries, from automotive production up to medical technology. Thanks to the robolink configurator, robolink D-joints are very easy to assemble and the robot arm can be easily configured. The price of the 5-axis articulated arm is € 3349 for the small or € 3998 for the larger option from a quantity of one without control system and is much lower cost with higher quantities.
