The 2 videos show robolink® prototype units with 6 DOF each, using our standard RL-D joints as well as our new RL-S joints (strain wave gears). These units are NOT yet a product. I will explain more about the ideas and technology in later entries.
3x RL-D (axis 1-3) and 3x RL-S (axis 4-6)
4x RL-D (axis 1-3 and 5), 1x RL-S (axis 6) and 1x special solution (axis 4)
At Hannover trade show next week (HMI 2016) we will present several new components and and possible options for our robolink® building block kit.
Main new product is our new strain wave gear RL-S. We will present 2 sizes (RL-S-17 and RL-S-20) as prototypes. With these gears we show 2 prototypes of possible 6 axis robot arms. The new RL-S gears are mainly used as 4th and 6th axis in the robots.

The video shows the idea and the working of the new strain wave gear coupled with our igus® stepper motors NEMA17 or NEMA23:
