All-in-one igus robolink DCi robotic arm and controller

With robolink DCi from igus, machine builders and production engineers can automate simple pick & place and assemble tasks without the associated high price tag. It is a complete automation package consisting of robotic arm and controller for intuitive operation. Suitable for lifting parts weighing up to 1kg with an accuracy of +/-0.5mm, engineers can quickly install and commission the robotic arm without prior robotics experience using online tutorials, simulation tools and other services.

Robert Dumayne, dry-tech director at igus says: "The modular control system of the robolink DCi, supplied by our software partner Commonplace Robotics, is located in the foot of the gripper arm of this 4- or 5-axis robot. This makes the articulated robotic arm extremely compact and a permanent connection to the PC or control cabinet superfluous."

With the intuitive CPRog control software, motion sequences can be learned quickly and easily, complex sequences can be simulated within the software in a 3D environment. These include programs with joint- and linear- digital outs, loop- or if-then-else commands. Further components, such as image processing systems, can be integrated via plug-ins.

The software is supplied on CD, so that only a Windows-compatible computer is required for commissioning. After setup, the stand-alone system does not require the otherwise obligatory PC connection and can be operated with a touch display. In addition, the controller can setup to communicate with other controllers via inputs and outputs.

The complete robolink DCi system can be ordered directly online, with a delivery time of around two weeks. For more information, please visit www.igus.co.uk/robolink-DCi.
