New preassembled delta robot for gripping automation

Treotham launches the new delta robot by igus designed
for easy, quick and cost-effective gripping applications in assembly tasks.

Comprising of maintenance-free toothed belt axes,
lubrication-free links, encoders and stepper motors, igus’ new automation
solution for assembly tasks can be sourced directly from stock as a preassembled
construction system or delivered ready to install, ready to be used
immediately.

igus develops their low-cost automation products to automate
simple tasks quickly, easily and cost-effectively. In addition to their room
gantries, the plastics specialist has now developed the delta robot based on
three maintenance-free drylin ZLW toothed belt axes, lubrication-free igubal
coupling bars and matching adapter plates.

Key features of the new igus delta robots include NEMA
stepper motors and encoders ensuring quick handling of up to 1 kilogram with a
precision of ± 0.5 millimetres; installation space of up to 420 millimetres in
diameter with ability to carry up to five kilograms at low speeds; lightweight
construction with aluminium and plastic making it extremely cost-effective; and
high speeds with a pick rate of at least 60 per minute.

Depending on the customer’s requirements, the new
delta robot can be delivered as a preassembled construction kit with assembly
instructions, or as a ready-to-install system in a transport frame. The
customer has the flexible option to use their own software and control system,
or igus’ intuitive and easy-to-use dryve D1 control system. The delta robot is
ideal for simple assembly functions, pick and place tasks, as well as
applications in inspection technology.

Additionally, Treotham also offers low-cost robotics
systems with the igus robolink product range. This range offers the user the
opportunity to individually assemble robot arms with up to 5 axes from a
modular system consisting of different joints with a wide variety of plastic
gears, motors and interface connectors.
