The drylin linear robots are based on the lubrication-free drive and linear technology from igus. As a manufacturer and supplier of all required axes, motors, energy chains, cables and hoses, igus offers both fast delivery of pre-configured linear robot kits within 24 hours and custom solutions. The drylin linear robots can be conveniently configured and assembled online as well as designed on site by our experts in the scope of a free consultation.
Typical applications for linear robots include pick-and-place solutions, measurement and test automation, marking applications, assembly cells, sorting machines, safety technology, laboratory and analytical technology, medical technology, handling, automation and positioning.
The benefits at a glance:
With the support of igus engineers, Actual implemented a mobile 3D printer in XXL format. This was used for the design of the innovative facade elements made of biodegradable plastic for the construction of the Dutch "Europe Building" in Amsterdam's marine district. Here, the modular system of the igus multi-axis linear robots is used: in this case, a room linear robot is used, in which the x-axis and y-axis have been implemented with drylin toothed belt units and the z-axis with drylin lead screw/nut systems.
M2-Automation in Berlin, develops and builds devices for the production of diagnostic systems and sample preparation under high chemical, hygienic and purity requirements. For the production of automated filling systems for chemical and biological liquids and suspensions in the picolitre and nanolitre levels, the company needed linear robots specially adapted to the laboratory environment. drylin linear robots met the selection criteria - lightweight, compact design, complete absence of lubricant, high speeds, positioning accuracy and not least the price/performance ratio convinced the customer. The use of polymer bearings in all places with moving parts make the room linear robot lubrication-free and therefore maintenance-free.
Linear robots are industrial robots, consisting of a combination of several linear axes. They help to implement a multi-dimensional movement and are used for positioning tasks, automation and as measuring stations. Linear robots are available in numerous designs, including line robots, low-profile linear robots and room linear robots.
Delta robots are industrial robots with at least three arms, which are either fixed to a base with universal joints or, in the case of drylin delta robots, to toothed belt axes. The flange star connected via spherical bearings with the arm-axes moves in X, Y and Z directions in such a way that it allows high precision. The arms of delta robots are very light, which reduces the inertia and allows high achievable speeds and accelerations.
This type of pick and place robots is often used in factories for packaging and assembly.
The lift/rotate unit is a space-saving pick and place robot based on a rack drive with a coated aluminium profile and a slewing ring with integrated toothing for receiving the toothed belt. Powered by a Nema motor, the lift/rotate unit can perform lifting and pivoting movements. The guide rod is at the same time the drive rod, whereby this handling device can move into very small installation spaces.
Due to the compact design, the lift/rotate unit offers versatile and flexible application possibilities in the handling of small parts.
