Simple Automation Solution for Assembly Tasks

"igus has introduced a low-cost robot that can help small- and medium-sized businesses get introduced to automation for an initial investment that is far less than units currently being used in manufacturing industries," said a company spokesperson.

The delta robot provides a simple automation solution for assembly tasks. The low-maintenance, lightweight robotic assembly is manufactured entirely with igus components.

igus' delta robot includes a maintenance-free toothed belt drive, lubrication-free linkage, encoders and stepper motors as well as optional drive controllers. The unit can be delivered pre-assembled or can be assembled on-site in about 30 minutes with easy-to-use instructions provided by igus. It is suitable for simple assembly functions, pick and place tasks and applications in inspection technology.

The robot is based on three maintenance-free drylin ZLW toothed-belt actuators, lubrication-free igubal spherical bearings and other lightweight components. NEMA stepper motors and encoders ensure quick handling by the delta robot, and the positioning accuracy of the system = +/-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 low speeds. The unit is constructed with aluminum and plastic materials, and reaches a maximum pick rate of 60 per minute. The unit weighs 15 kg, has a working area diameter of 380 mm (at 75 mm) and a maximum process force of 100 N (a radius of 0 mm).
