Building low-cost robotic systems using igus robolink: part 3

A video from igus, the third in a four-part series, demonstrates how quick and easy it is to build your own versatile robotic systems using modular, low-cost and easy-to-assemble robolink kits.

As engineers continue to utilise robotics to increase productivity and safely automate all kinds of repetitive tasks, from automotive assembly to pharmaceutical pick-and-place, robolink from igus offers a low-cost, easy-to-assemble modular alternative to costly bespoke robotic systems for rapid development of lean automation systems.

Engineers can select from and combine a wide variety of modular robolink kit elements, including articulated joints and arms, gears, drives, motors and tools, such as grippers or cameras, to meet their application requirements and construct complete, powerful and low-cost robotic automation systems. With cables routed through the arm, and many components made from self-lubricating tribopolymer engineering plastics, the design is lightweight, corrosion resistant and virtually maintenance free. Movement is controlled via motors and direct drive wave or worm gears, or by rope/wire drives. Fully assembled robotic arm units can be programmed and controlled via configuration-based open source software, available free of charge from igus.

Watch the third video in the series at www.igus.co.uk/robolinkp3arm to see how quick and easy it is to assemble robolink articulated arms, with minimal requirements for tools. To learn more about the robolink modular system for robotics, visit www.igus.co.uk.
