igus increases drylin delta robot working space by factor of 10igus is introducing a new version of its drylin delta robot with a 10× larger work space volume compared with its original model. This lightweight DLE-DR system for simple pick & place tasks is delivered as a kit or ready to install product. This guarantees quick operation and saves costs immediately.

The robot consists of three maintenance-free drylin ZLW toothed belt axes with NEMA23 XL encoder stepper motors, lubrication-free igubal coupling joints and matching adapter plates for grippers and motors. This ensures the quick handling of up to 5kg with a precision of +/-0.5mm. The new drylin delta robot offers a 10× larger working space with 660mm diameter at 180mm height, which significantly increases the range. A calibrating pin allows the robot to be positioned at the zero point. It is directly fixed to the mounting hub.

The drylin delta robot is suitable for simple assembly activities, pick & place tasks, as well as applications in inspection technology. As a kit, it can be set up in just 30 minutes and is very cost-effective. Robert Dumayne, dry-tech director at igus says: “Even a small or medium-sized company can venture into automation for a few thousand pounds. The return on investment is less than six months for most applications.”

Depending on the customer’s requirements, the new drylin DLE-DR can be delivered within 3 to 7 days as a kit with assembly instructions in a box, or as a ready-to-install system in a transport frame. As an option, the customer can use their own software and control system, or the intuitive and easy-to-use dryve D1 control system from igus.
