The automation of production processes is becoming ever more important for increased productivity. The new self-lubricating and maintenance-free drylin E linear robot is suitable for a wide range of applications, be it in medical equipment with high safety and hygienic requirements, tasks in microelectronics, or pick & place functions. In a small working envelope of 400 x 400 x 100 mm, the small complete solution can carry loads of up to 2.5 kg at maximum speeds of up to 0.5 m/s.

“Two drylin ZLW toothed belt axes for the base and a drylin GRW small and light cantilever axis combine to ensure precise guidance and self-lubricating operation thanks to sliding elements made of high-performance plastics,” says Robert Dumayne, dry-tech director at igus. The linear robot is delivered within 24 hours ready to connect with NEMA17/23 stepper motors and encoders. Mounting brackets for system profiles are also available as an option, thus the assembly can be easily installed on the machine the very next day.

In addition to the new drylin E linear robot for a small working envelope, igus also supplies line and flat linear robots directly from stock. All linear robots include pre-configured drylin linear modules and linear axes with NEMA stepper motors, as well as all components required for self-assembly. In addition to the available stock items, the engineer has the option of assembling their own custom linear robot online at: www.igus.co.uk/robot-enquiry Depending on the customer requirements, axis length and various motors can also be configured with, for example, complementing igus energy chains and cables.

Igus

Igus is the largest producer of reinforced plastic energy chains and injection-moulded polymer bearings. The range of polymer bearings includes Iglidur plain, Igubal spherical and Drylin linear bearings. They offer an excellent price-to-life relationship and are developed under the toughest conditions. They are oil, maintenance and lubrication free, low wear, resistant to dirt and dust, corrosion free and simple to fit. Igus also has the data to precisely predict the lifetime of these bearings within a specific application.

Energy chains are the umbilical cord of modern machines. They minimise downtime and protect, support and extend the service life of cables and hoses. The broad range incorporates more than 30,000 innovative, low-cost products. From the smallest ‘micro’ chain to the largest chain in the world, the E4.350, Igus energy chains are capable of long and short travel distances at high speeds in all axes.

Igus also has its own cable series, Chainflex, specially designed with energy chains in mind. They are highly flexible cables, offering a long service life and very small bending radii. A wide range is available, from small signal cables to large power cables, high-speed data cables and glass fibre-optic cables.

The company’s energy chains and Chainlflex cables can be delivered as a fully harnessed and pre-assembled Readychain system, cutting purchasing, warehousing and installation costs.
