igus is promoting its robolink, pickchain and drylin E products for budget-conscious robotic applications. The offering includes a wide range of state-of-the-art product ranges, all designed by igus to live up to the company’s ‘plastics for longer life’ mantra.
Winner of the ‘iF product design award 2011’, robolink is a completely modular and water-resistant system; this multi-axis joint is suitable for humanoid robots and lightweight automation applications. Alongside robolink, pikchain allows for continuous supply of power, data and media. This means that each station can be individually actuated to work as a loop linking system and guided safely and reliably thanks to the c-chain principle.
Available within 3 to 4-day lead times, the drylin E modular linear actuator can be powered by either stepper or DC motors; it is lubrication free to help ensure low maintenance.
