The robolink® construction kit - modular and open

The robolink® range includes various joints, motors and connecting components. All components can be ordered separately. Therefore, it is possible to combine the robolink® joints and motors with special connecting elements. igus® provides CAD data for all components. In addition to the combination of our parts with self-made components, we offer the following combinations:

RL-DC (2-5 axes):

Directly driven joints with C-profile components as connecting element
robolink DC  

RL-WR (2-6 axes):

Rope-driven joints with round profile as connecting element

Assembling robolink® yourself

As a rule, we completely assemble your robolink® articulated arm configured according to your wishes. However, if you want to use your own motors or connecting plates for example, you can assemble the robolink® very easily yourself. The following videos provide useful step-by-step instructions on how to do this. The information provided on the top right-hand side of the picture tells you how far you have progressed with assembly and makes it easier for you to navigate through the video.

1. Connect stepper motors to robolink® joints

 

2. Mounting robolink® D joints and connecting plates on the base of the articulated arm

 

3. Connecting a cable to the robolink® D articulated arm

 

4. Replacing motor with worm gear in a robolink® joint
