Direct drive articulated robot arm

21 October 2014

Expanding its range of modular robolink  systems, igus has  introduced the  durable robolink D direct drive articulated arm. 

The new robolink is driven by a worm gear drive and a NEMA 17 or 23 stepper motor directly in the joint; these can be controlled using any commercially available control module. Based on self-lubricating iglidur PRT slewing ring bearings, robolink D system is available in three sizes, which can be combined to create articulated arms from one to as many as six degrees of freedom.

The sea-water resistant, maintenance and corrosion-free bearings of the robolink D makes it suitable for a variety of other applications, ranging from underwater vehicle operations to humanoid robots for explosive equipment handling.
