Assembly robot kit offered for less than £6,00021 September 2018

An Igus three-axis assembly robot for pick-and-place applications is now available for £5,500 without controller. It offers a 380mm working diameter at 75mm standoff.

The aluminium and plastic robot is based on three Drylin ZLW toothed belt axes, lubrication-free Igubal link rods and matching adapter plates. NEMA stepper motors and encoders provide handling of up to 1 kg with a precision of ±0.5 mm. The complete system has an installation space of up to 420 mm in diameter and can carry up to 5 kg at lower speeds. Pick rate is at least 60 per minute.

“The open design of the Delta robot enables manufacturers to use their own controller,” says Matthew Aldridge, managing director of igus. “We estimate that with the usual integration costs, each Delta robot installation will be around £10,000 to £15,000, which means that it will pay for itself after a few months.”
