STEP data for robolink D

since October 2015, the standard version of RL-D-50 (-101 and -102) is also available from stock. The missing PRT-02-50 version was the reason for the delay. Please find attached here the STEP data for our joints for all variants and sizes, as well as for a collection of motor kits (with igus stepper motors).

These STEP data will soon be available via our main igus download center too! It is only a question of a few more days……

robolink at MOTEK, 4 DOF, new documents

At this year’s MOTEK show in Stuttgart (GER) we will show the possibility to build 4 DOF robot arms with our motorized joints. 2 films at the end of this entry show 2 possible concepts:

1) “small” version with 4 joints size 30 – 30 -20 – 20, built with igus DC motors. No programming possible, just a joystick control.

2) “big” version with 4 joints size 50 – 50 – 30 – 20, built with igus stepper motors and a robolink gripper.

Please be aware that both arms are no sales products. They are examples of how a joint arm could look like. The connection parts are made of folded metal sheet parts. Please contact me for further questions in this issue (

Also attached our new catalogue (this version in GER with more RL-D infos and german list prices). Eng. version will follow soon.

And additionally 2 updated versions of tech. data sheets for symmetrical joints (version 101 with 2 PRT) and asymmetrical joints (version 102 with 1 PRT)

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-101 RL-D-xx-102

RL-D-xx-101: symmetrical Joint with 2 PPRT for vertical Installation (used in our robotic arms),

tech data RL-D-101 _D-ENG_.pdf (167.44 kb)

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

tech data RL-D-102 _D-ENG_.pdf (150.10 kb) 

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