Video of the Week – How igus robotic technologies combine for low-cost automation

The term ‘low-cost robotics’ refers to the rapid growth of robotic production enabled by simple and affordable automation components. Depending on the scope of the application, entire processes can be automated.

To demonstrate how this can be achieved, igus has combined its robolink, drylin E and energy chain technologies to produce a multi-axis articulated pick & place unit. This week’s video shows two such units operating in unison via a matching control unit.

igus provides everything needed for cost-effective process automation from a single source; whether it is whole robot arms, individual components for individual solutions or to expand existing applications, and a control system suited to robolink with intuitive software.

Both the robolink articulated arm and the drylin E linear robot are easy to configure via the igus online configurators:
