robolink® low cost robot as complete system or individual solution

robolink from igus offers you two ways of benefiting from the advantages of  Low Cost Automation:
1. Assemble your own individual solution.
2. Choose one of our pre-configured robolink articulated arms, delta robots or drylin linear robots.
Advantages of the modular low cost robots

  • Modular approach
  • Low cost
  • High flexibility: wide choice of end effectors
  • Lightweight construction
  • Precision ≤ 1mm
  • 2-5 degrees of freedom (DOF)
  • Return on Investment (ROI) after 4 to 7 months (depending on design and integration level)
  • Maintenance-free, no lubrication necessary
  • Free CAD downloads
  • robolink design and simulate online
  • With or without motors
  • With or without control system


The modular system principle: robots can be ordered as complete modules or individually.
