Low cost robotics will revolutionise production, says Igus

180506_IgusUntil recently, due to the high costs involved, robots were used mainly by large, profitable industries producing high-value commodities. Today, a revolution is changing the way we think about production: low cost robotics. In this video, Igus highlights how its robolink technology is empowering small to medium sized businesses to integrate robotic automation into a work process cost-effectively.

With robolink, Igus offers engineers two options – either to use robolink designer, or select and order individual components. The robolink designer online tool allows the user to intuitively construct an articulated arm and simulate its movements. Step by step, simply select components, adjust them, and then receive them as a parts list.

Alternatively, single components can be selected from the online shop in order to design an individual automation solution for a specific application. 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.
