Cartesian robot - drylin® gantries

A maintenance-free, low-cost automation solution

igus® cartesian robots are motor driven systems available as a flat, line or room gantry. igus® gantry robots can be bespoke in design for a host of automated tasks in a multitude of industries, performing xyz linear motions. Typical applications for these linear robots are pick and place, sorting, labelling and an array of assembly applications. The cartesian robot are engineered to be quiet and smooth in operation with self-lubricating components that are corrosion and maintenance-free.

Additionally, igus® cartesian robots are supplied with the igus® drylin® linear modules along with a NEMA stepper motors for each axis
