Self-Lubricating and Maintenance-Free Linear Robot



Self-lubricating and precise travel on three axes is possible with the new drylin E linear robot designed for small spaces.

Since products need to be manufactured quickly and cost-effectively, the pressure to automate production processes is greater than ever. To meet these growing requirements, igus has developed a new, compact linear robot that is shipped from stock as early as same-day.

The self-lubricating and maintenance-free drylin E linear robot is suitable for a wide range of applications, from pick & place technology to medical devices with strict safety requirements. The small, complete solution can carry loads of up to 5.5 lbs. at maximum speeds of up to 1.64 FPS. "In the robot, the drylin ZLW toothed belt axes and drylin GRW gear rack axis ensure accuracy, and the sliding elements made of high-performance plastic ensure self-lubricating operation," said Matt Mowry, drylin Product Manager at igus.

Mounting brackets for system profiles are also available. The robot is shipped ready to connect with NEMA17/23 stepper motors and encoders, making it easy to mount the system.

drylin E Linear Robots from Stock

In addition to the new drylin E linear robot, igus also supplies line and flat linear robots directly from stock. All linear robots include pre-configured drylin linear modules and linear axes with NEMA stepper motors, as well as the components required for self-assembly. Users have the option of assembling their own custom linear robot with the online configuration tool. Depending on customer requirements, axis length and various motors can also be configured with igus energy chains and cables.
