Combining robotic technologies for low-cost automation solutions

19 March 2018

The term ‘low-cost robotics’ refers to robotic production enabled by simple and affordable automation components. Depending on the scope of the application, entire processes can be automated. To demonstrate how this can be achieved, igus has combined its robolink, drylin E and energy chain technologies to produce a multi-axis articulated pick & place unit.

A video shows two such units operating in unison via a matching control unit.

igus says it is able to provide everything needed for cost-effective process automation, including whole robot arms, individual components for new projects or to expand existing applications, and a control system suited to robolink with intuitive software.

Both the robolink articulated arm and the drylin E linear robot can be configured via the igus online configurators.
