igus has produced a short video starring one of its robolink ReBeL robots who wants to learn more about low-cost robotics.
Injection-moulded polymer components make the robolink ReBeL joints lightweight and cost-effective. Furthermore, each joint incorporates a brushless DC (BLDC) motor, strain wave gearing, control technology and cable guidance. These joints are connected to create a low-cost robot with up to six axes of motion.
According to igus, robolink ReBeL low-cost robots could be used for tasks in the workplace and private sector. Being very light, ReBeL joints are particularly suitable for mobile applications where a robotic arm is mounted on a moving platform. The following examples are said to be typical areas of application:
- Mobile applications
- In combination with the Alexa voice assistant
- Collection and delivery services
- Pick-and-place tasks
- Loading and unloading dishwashers
