Igus’s Robolink range consists of articulated modules that have been integrated into a variety of robotic applications. Thanks to their light weight and maintenance- and corrosion-free properties, Robolink modules are proving ideal for a range of humanoid robotic systems, from underwater vehicle operations to explosive equipment handling, as well as sophisticated camera booms.

Robolink

Draw-wire technology with four cords enable each joint to rotate and pivot freely. In addition, pneumatic, hydraulic and all data cables are laid through aluminium/carbon-fibre plastic articulated arms that effectively control all sensors and sensory organs.

With moving mass reduced to a minimum, Robolink has been carefully designed by Igus to provide robot developers and laboratories with a compact and lightweight product.

In addition, the actuators (drives, pneumatics and hydraulics) and the control module (DP, PC) have been separated from the movement mechanism and tools.

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.
