ReBeL® cobot

The igus® collaborative robot

The ReBeL® cobot is the first robot made of high-performance plastic. At just 8kg, it is the lightest in its class: a real lightweight robot. The compact, space-saving design with an integrated control system in the base opens up completely new fields of application for service robotics. In collaboration with people, the ReBeL® takes on tasks in the event and gastronomy environment, for example as a reliable coffee enricher or as a machine loader in production.

The ReBeL® cobot offers freedom of choice: the robot is available as a plug-and-play version with integrated control system and robot software or as an open-source version. In addition, users can choose between four or six degrees of freedom and therefore adapt the ReBeL® to their individual application scenario.

Configure your cobot free of charge

The ReBeL® cobot doesn’t need a control panel, instead it uses our robotic arm configurator to program and tests various applications in advance. If you need to program multiple robots for different tasks,  the configurator can do it for you.

The software is easy to use and ideal for beginner programmers. It comes with pre-programmed projects as well, helping to get you started.
