Simple, precise, fast processes: these are the requirements of Cartesian robots.
They are used for such things as pick and place applications, sorting systems and medical technology.
igus has now developed a line and room linear robot for large workspaces. The two new kinematics systems allow users to move up to 5kg.
The drylin line and room linear robots consist of pre-configured linear modules, aluminium linear axes, NEMA stepper motors and encoders.
The line robot is for simple pick & place tasks, transporting loads of up to 50 N in a workspace of 800x500mm at a maximum speed of up to 1m/s.
For more complex tasks, the room robot can transport loads of up to 50 N in a workspace of 800x800x500mm at a maximum speed of 0.5m/s. Two ZLW toothed belt axes and one GRR gear rack axis ensure precise guidance and lubrication-free operation.
In addition to the stock items, users can assemble their own linear robot with strokes of up to six metres at www.igus.co.uk/drylinEconfigurator.
Depending on customer requirements, axis length and various motors can also be configured with such items as energy chains and cables from igus.
