robolink D 5-axis articulated arms now available pre-assembled

04 January 2017

igus offers its robolink D 5-axis articulated arms as an assembly kit consisting of arm, motor and gearbox, or now as a ready-to-connect articulated arm.

This enables machine and system builders to rapidly implement their own low-cost robotic automation systems. 

“Robots are taking over more in automation tasks,” says Robert Dumayne, director of dry-tech bearings, igus. “Last year, sales of industrial robots exceeded 245,000 pieces, marking a new record.” 

At the same time, interest is also growing in simple and inexpensive robotics solutions. In the area of low-cost automation, engineers can increase the productivity of their machines with a flexible robot kit using robolink D. It is also possible to combine motors and joints in several installation sizes with standard control systems for a complete robot made of plastic and aluminium. 

The robolink DC is available as a 5-axis model in two options: a small version with a load capacity of up to 0.5kg and a larger version with up to 2.5kg. The system can also be ordered as a subassembly, for example as a rotary unit, pivot unit or 2-axis rotating arm. 

Thanks to the robolink configurator, the robotic arm can be easily configured for delivery in kit form or pre-assembled – all that is required is the control system to become fully functional. In addition to the joints, motors and metal parts as the connecting system, e-chains and chainflex cables with a 36-month guarantee are also available from igus to power the robotic arm.
