igus drylin delta robot is coming to a place near you

by igus

igus recently took its drylin delta robot on tour to the west coast of Ireland, visiting businesses in Galway and Shannon, before heading to Dublin. The skilled igus engineers based in Ireland have visited many companies in both Eire and Northern Ireland, showing the drylin delta robot as a low-cost automation solution for simple assembly tasks, such as pick and place.

During the road trip, igus product manager Chris Corfield who is based in Rathkeale, Eire, says: “Proud to be known for our tactile and practical approach to engaging with customers, we visited 5 companies from industries including pharmaceutical, food & beverage and manufacturing.”

The drylin delta robot is based on three maintenance-free drylin ZLW toothed belt axes, lubrication-free igubal link rods and matching adapter plates. NEMA stepper motors and encoders ensure fast handling of up to 1 kg with a precision of ±0.5 mm. The complete system has an installation space of up to 420 mm in diameter and can carry up to 5 kg with a pick rate of at least 60 per minute.

“The open design of the drylin delta robot enables manufacturers to use their own controller, however, they can opt for the intuitive and easy-to-use dryve D1 controller from igus,” adds Corfield. “We estimate that with the usual integration costs, each robot installation will be around €10,000 to €15,000, which means that it will pay for itself after a few months.”

Depending on requirements, the drylin delta robot is available as a kit in a box with comprehensive assembly instructions and an online video: www.igus.ie/deltaassembly Alternatively, it can be delivered pre-assembled on a transport frame ready for installation.

Further road trips are scheduled. To ensure your facility secures a visit from the delta robot team, please contact Vanessa Whiteley at: vanessa.whiteley@igus.net
