Direct drive robotic arms

01 June 2015

igus® takes robotics automation to a new level with the introduction of its next generation robolink D; a direct drive joint kit that is available in three different sizes and can be combined to form customised and configurable 1- to 4-axis articulated robotic arms.

Robolink D is intended for robot manufacturers, mechanical engineers and automation specialists, working in a variety of industries ranging from automotive production to medical technology.

Each low-cost joint kit comprises a PRT polymer slewing ring bearing, which is self-lubricating and therefore maintenance free, and worm gear, which is housed in plastic for added protection while ensuring weight is kept to a minimum. 

For direct drive of the joint, a NEMA motor with the appropriate cables can be integrated in the axis and equipped with an encoder to send angle signals back to the controller. A variety of different grippers is available optionally.

Both the individual components and the pre-assembled system with construction diagrams are readily available.
