Build - make your own robot

In order to automate your work process cost-effectively and individually, you have two options: either you can use the robolink® designer to create an articulated arm according to your wishes or you can order individual components directly from our shop. The modular system makes robolink® not only very flexible, but can also be combined with your own components, tools and control systems, as well as those of other manufacturers.

The robolink® designer provides you with an intuitive interface that allows you to construct an articulated arm according to your ideas and simulate its movements. Step by step, you can select components, adjust them, and then receive them as a parts list.

Component parts in the shop

robolink® D individual parts  

You can find single components in our shop in order to design an individual automation solution for your application. For maximum flexibility, robolink® components can be equipped with motors made by other manufacturers or your own connecting plates/control system.

Customised robolink® solution in use

Thanks to the high modularity of the individual robolink® components, even complex special applications can be automated, like in this example from MATRIUM GmbH: a tailor-made solution was developed by combining robolink® components, their own components and those of other manufacturers. A gripper arm was designed for fully automatically sorting and placing scanned JEDEC trays into a rack, thus reliably carrying out a very expensive process.

Free CAD download

The CAD data of the individual robolink® components, as well as the fully configured articulated arms, can be downloaded free of charge from igus® in various formats and for different CAD systems.

Would you rather have a pre-configured robolink® system?

igus® also offers various pre-configured and assembled robolink® models. If required, these models can be used with the control system tailored for robolink® and drylin®, which comes with easy-to-use software.
