FAKUMA 2017, Automation unit at Dr Boy booth

At the FAKUMA trade show, our supplier and partner DR. BOY (http://www.dr-boy.de/) presented an injection moulding process. The automated handling of the products is operated by a 4 DOF robolink joint arm RL-D-RBT-5532-BC (igus standard product) together with a CPR control unit (http://cpr-roboter.de/produkte/igusrobot.html).

customer application ALBIS PLASTIC at FAKUMA 2017

ALBIS is an igus customer and supplier: http://www.albis.com/

At FAKUMA fair, they presented a very nice “demo plastic factory”, using our 4 DOF robolink arm RL-D-RBT-3322-BC as manipulator. The complete project has been realised by the training workshop at Albis (“AZUBI” project). Very nice demonstration!

NEW Application for robolink in low cost sorting

Our customer PROFACTOR from Austria (http://www.profactor.at/) has shown a new low cost sorting solution at MOTEK show in Stuttgart. They use our robolink joint arm RL-DQ-RBT-5532S for this task. The arm uses a CPR control unit (http://www.commonplacerobotics.de/produkte/igusrobot.html)

HMI interview with Martin Raak (product manager)

As the international product manager for RL at igus I have started this blog ~5 years ago and I use it as a platform to share our experiences and NEWS with most current data (download links for STEP data, datasheets and videos in most entries). Please find today an interview statement from me about our latest HMI presentation. This might be the most comfortable way for you to get an impression of our latest developments. In my next entry I will also present our new “roboolink design tool” which is now online!
