Automate 2015 - igus - Wide range of robotic solutions from igus to be displayed at Automate 2015 in Chicago

The motion plastics manufacturer will be presenting an assortment of solutions for a wide range of industries and applications in booth 332 at McCormick Place March 23-26th.

March 17th, 2015 - East Providence, Rhode Island - igus will be displaying a variety of their motion plastic solutions for robotics at the Automate 2015 trade show, running March 23-26th at McCormick Place in Chicago. igus technical experts will be on hand to demonstrate and explain products like the Triflex RSP multi-axis cable carrier system with adjustable pneumatic retraction, DryLin E linear slide tables with integrated motor, and Robolink modular robotic joints, among others.

The Triflex RSP system is designed for cable guidance on robots performing complex movements. The adjustable pneumatic retraction system safely guides the cable package, and can be attached to various robotic models quickly and easily. Lightweight and space-saving, Triflex RSP is also available with optional monitoring system for robots whose program sequences frequently change, alternate, or are not 100-percent predictable.
DryLin E is a complete linear axis system plus motor, ready to fit into a variety of applications. DryLin E is the latest addition to the modular DryLin range of linear products. Ready to fit linear actuators and drive systems can be fitted either with lead screw drives or belts, and a variety of NEMA steppers, all available from stock and ready to ship in as early as today.
igus' Robolink is a lightweight, maintenance and corrosion-resistant range of robotic joints for humanoid systems or other automated applications. The system is compact, offering multiple axes and degrees of freedom. Using Robolink, pressure is converted to tensile forces via cables, which mimic biological sinews. When compared to steel, Robolink is lower priced, and more energy efficient. A variety of drive/control systems are possible.

New KUKA Robot: KR 3 AGILUS Maximum performance in minimum space

Great advances often start with small steps - in manufacturing cells measuring only 600 × 600 mm. Here, the KR 3 AGILUS is in its element. Particularly in the case of small parts and products which must be produced in a minimum of space. KUKA expertise, concentrated into the smallest of spaces, is setting new standards for the 3-kg class. The lightweight robot masters various tasks with agility, dynamism and maximum precision, leading to high flexibility in production - even when it comes to extremely narrow spaces.
