Linear robots for cost-effective automation

24 April 2020

igus has developed a line and room linear robot capable of moving up to 5kg for large workspaces. Both linear robots are available directly from stock with no minimum order quantity.

The drylin line and room linear robots consist of pre-configured linear modules, aluminium linear axes, NEMA stepper motors and encoders. The line robot is for simple pick & place tasks, transporting loads of up to 50N in a workspace of 800 x 500mm at a maximum speed of up to 1m/s. For more complex tasks, the room robot can transport loads of up to 50N in a workspace of 800 x 800 x 500mm at a maximum speed of 0.5m/s. Two ZLW toothed belt axes and one GRR gear rack axis ensure precise guidance and lubrication-free operation.

In addition to the stock items, users can assemble their own linear robot with strokes of up to six metres at www.igus.co.uk/drylinEconfigurator and request a quotation from igus. Depending on customer requirements, axis length and various motors can also be configured with such items as energy chains and cables from igus.
