robolink DC at HMI – igus factory automation

Hannover show (HMI) was a great succes for igus and robolink department especiallly! New records in numbers everywhere. I will share new informations within the next days and weeks (videos, data sheeets, STEP data, …). Starting today with a video of our igus “factory automation unit” how we showed it on the booth. It shows a real application in our factory in cologne, e-chain parts are placed for automatic assembly with a robolink joint arm (RL-D-RBT-5532S-BC with 5 DOF) plus a drylin linear system for adjustment (rotation).

The 2nd video comes from a neighbour booth, company RUBICON AUTOMATION, they show a belt system plus automation with robolink 5 DOF “smalll arm” (RL-D-RBT-3322S-AC).

CASTOR.PL integrates robolink D in your application

Our polish customer CASTOR  http://en.castorautomatyka.pl/ has shown their automation solution with our robolink D 5DOF joint arm at Automaticon show in Warszawa. Castor uses B&R control components and is able to solve YOUR application with their engineering. Communication via iPad is a possible option. For further information, please contact grzegorz.ferens@castor.com.pl

Customer application: Automation with RL

Our german customer MATRIUM GmbH has designed and built this automation unit with a huge number of igus components such as drylinE rails, e-chains, chainflex, tribotape and also robolink. It runs today in daily operation. The robolink arm consists of 2 joints (size -20 and -30) and performs a “simple” scara movement.

The complete unit is 5,50 x 3,70 m big, it serves to sort so called JEDEC-Trays for recycling / re-use, ~ 2.500 different trays can be recognized and sorted after the vision learning phase!

More information and contact data: MATRIUM GmbH, http://www.matrium.de, Mr. Eikel is the responsible engineer.

robot FLASH from Wroclaw University of technology (Poland)

The team of Jan Kedzierski (Ph.D.) from Wroclaw University of technology now presents their NEW generation of the autonomous robot FLASH. It is (again) equipped with 2 pcs. 5 DOF robolink wire driven joint arms. They developpped their own drive technology for this robot based on DC/BLDC motors as an open source project. It will be published soon, I will link to their project then.
