We not only build robots and robot parts, our joints are also used f.ex. in format adjustments. The video link shows an example from a packaging machine, the 2nd film shows an igus demo unit. In this case, the RL worm shaft can be coupled from one joint to another. USPs: running dry, light weight, modular !
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).

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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
Company Commonplace robotics from GER shows a quick and simple control solution for our modular joint kit. It consists of a set of electronics (incl. stepper motor drivers) and a WINDOWS software package.
More details can not yet be announced, as this is a brand new solution, but we will check more facts within the next weeks. The product is available at Commonplace robotics GmbH:
