robot FLASH from Wroclaw University of technology (Poland)

Martin Raak | 28. September 2015

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 […]

Ini switch for robolink D

Martin Raak | 11. September 2015

We control the position of our RL-D joints by using the motor encoder (of our igus stepper motors). In order to define a reference point (or ZERO position), an additional inductive initiator switch (=Ini) can be installed on the joint as an option. The spec. of the Ini switch is given below, it is the same […]

robolink D test area

Martin Raak | 28. August 2015

we do several lifetime and performance tests with our robolink D joints. Until July, main topics were material and geometry optimisations for the gear and bearing components. Nowadays, we do lifetime tests for different joint types at different loads and speeds. The attached film shows or test unit with currently 9 test places, it will […]

STEP data RL-D joint kit

Martin Raak | 19. May 2015

The Basic idea of our NEW RL-D Joints is, that every Joint can be composed out of several components (Joint kit). Main differentiations are: # Rotary sliding bearing igus PRT-01 (aluminum table with iglidur J sliding elements) or PRT-02-AL (aluminum ring with compact plastic ring made of iglidur J4) or PRT-02-LC (outer aluminum ring replaced […]

COMPAMED 2014, robolink in wheel-chair application

Martin Raak | 10. November 2014

At this year’s COMPAMED, we will show a 4 DOF robolink Joint arm, mounted on a common wheel chair. igus does not offer this as a complete solution for end users, but we want to demonstrate the possibility to use our Joints and actuators for such interactive purposes. This Joint arm may perform pre programmed movements […]
