The new range of compact linear robots has been
developed by igus to accomplish automation tasks in limited space production
processes. The automation of production processes is becoming increasingly
important in order to manufacture products within the shortest possible time
and at low cost.
Designed to move with ease and precision in the
smallest of spaces, the drylin E linear robots from igus are lubrication-free
and maintenance-free, making them ideal for a wide range of applications from medical
technology with high safety requirements, and tasks in microelectronics to pick-and-place
functions for very small series productions.
The drylin E linear robot can carry loads of up to 2.5
kilograms at maximum speeds of up to 0.5 metres per second in a small working
envelope of 400 x 400 x 100 millimetres.
Key features of igus’ drylin E linear robots include two
drylin ZLW toothed belt axes and one drylin GRW gear rack axis ensuring precise
guidance and lubrication-free operation thanks to sliding elements made of
high-performance plastics; optional mounting brackets for system profiles; and
delivered ready to connect with NEMA17/23 stepper motors and encoders.
