Seventh axis for all robots

Easy expansion of the workspace for all lightweight robots

Our 7th axis can be used individually and flexibly. It extends the range of action of robots by up to 6,000mm (according to technical design), making them much more flexible in applications. An adapter kit is available for this axis for direct connection to your robot.
The linear axis can be used for applications with a precision requirement of 0.3mm with a load of up to 55kg and a max. speed of up to 0.6m/s. Our 7th axis consists largely of our tribologically optimised plastics and enables significant cost savings.
We offer suitable adapter kits for igus® robots, Universal Robots, Epson, Omron, Franka Emika, Doosan, and many more. Control is possible via digital I/Os, UR Cap or the igus® Robot Control system.
