STEP data RL-D joint kit

The Basic idea of our NEW RL-D Joints is, that every Joint can be composed out of several components (Joint kit). Main differentiations are:

# Rotary sliding bearing igus PRT-01 (aluminum table with iglidur J sliding elements) or PRT-02-AL (aluminum ring with compact plastic ring made of iglidur J4) or PRT-02-LC (outer aluminum ring replaced by moulded outer ring => low cost solution).

# worm shaft made of hard anodized aluminum, or as injection moulded plastic part (iglidur RN33), additional materials as an Option.

# axial bearings of the worm shaft as roller bearings or thrust washer made of iglidur J.

# worm wheel currently made of iglidur J, additional materials will be offered in the future.

We have pre defined 3 general Solutions. Standard will make use of PRT-02-AL, hard anodized aluminum worm shaft with roller bearings. For the “high-end” solution, PRT-02-AL will be replaced by PRT-01, the low cost solution will contain PRT-02-LC, worm shaft made of iglidur RN33 and thrust washers as axial  bearings => see Pictures. STEP data of all Solutions for 3 sizes attached.

Annotation: RL-D-50-xxx is currently only possible as high-end solution. PRT-02-AL or -LC are not yet available at igus.

RL-D-xx-101 (symmetric Version with 2 PRT (used in our trade Show robots)

  RL-D-xx-102 (asymmetric Version with 1 PRT (used as first axis or for horizontal applications)

robolink D data sheets and STEP data

Please find attached current (preliminary) data sheets for our new robolink D Joints. These Joints exist in 3 sizes: -20, -30 and -50 (based on the Dimensions of our rotary sliding tables PRT).

RL-D-xx-102: asymmetrical Joint with 1 PRT for horizontal Installation (used as positioning device or as 1st axis in a robotic arm)

I will publish 3D Step data of These Joints beginning of next week in this blog.
