Cost-effective, space-saving econ toothed belt axis: drylin® ZLN-40

From prototype to mass production. The ZLN combines the flat and lightweight design of the drylin® N linear guide with the dynamics of a toothed belt axis.

Addition: Build it yourself in 30 minutes – drylin® DLE-DR delta robot

Based on a modular system, users can choose between a compact self-assembly modular kit or pre-assembled in a transport frame. Both options are very cost-effective, so that the investment in automation pays off very quickly.

e-loop – the e-chain® for vertical heavy-duty applications

The e-loop combines the advantages of a plastic e-chain® with those of a high-strength Dyneema rope. Ideal for three-dimensional movements.

Even lighter, lower profile: PRT-04 slewing ring bearings

The new PRT-04 slewing ring bearing is 60% lighter than its predecessor. The installation height was also reduced by half, offering even more design freedom.

Move sharp-edged and heavy loads with lubrication-free ball transfer units

Polymer ball transfer units with stainless steel balls are ideal for transporting sharp-edged goods, e.g. in transport tables. They are more cost-effective and also lighter than pure stainless steel rollers.

Universal cable guidance for small robots & cobots

Cable guidance at collaborative robots - new modular concepts for fast attachment of energy supply without tools.

e-spool® flex - continuous panel feed

Design study: the e-spool® flex is the igus version of a cable drum. It combines an intelligent housing design with a twisterband for rotary motion on the inside. This results in the flexibility of being able to use any cable with a diameter of up to 10mm.

The features that make new products from igus so convincing:

  • Longer service life
  • Integrated intelligence (smart plastics)
  • Better properties than metal
  • Low procurement and assembly times
