Buy or build robolink® articulated arm robot with 4 or 5 axes

For flexible automation with up to 5 degrees of freedom

Can be used in every application - modular and cost-effective

Our robolink® articulated arm robots can be used individually and flexibly. Whether for simple pick-and-place applications or vertically positioned; thanks to numerous customer applications and optimisations in our own test lab, we can always improve our robotics technologies.
Our robolink articulated robots can be used with a precision of 1mm and loads up to 3kg in almost all sectors and industries. It can implement applications with process times of eight seconds. One process is gripping and depositing parts.
Our promise of success: our robolink robotics components are mostly made of tribologically optimised polymers to enable significant cost savings. At the same time, a long service life and freedom from maintenance are realised.

  • Up to 5 degrees of freedom  
  • Reach up to 790mm 
  • With encoder/control system upon request
  • Linear adjustment on the drylin ZLW toothed belt axis extends the robot's radius of action by a 7th axis
    Typical applications:
  • Palletisation
  • Gripping applications/ Pick and place
  • Test applications
  • Welding

    Robot control system

    Intuitive robot control: igus Robot Control

    The modular control system with free software realises the individual control of robots. When purchasing different robot kinematics available as control cabinet or as top-hat (DIN) rail version.

    igus® Robot Control system for up to 5 axes

    Up to 7 degrees of freedom - on vertical or horizontal level

    The so-called seventh axis as a linear drive increases the reach of robots, leading to a higher flexibility of applications. For this axis, two adapter kits are now available for the direct connection of robots robolink DProbolink DCi  as well as universal robots with UR CAP integration .
