Build or buy your own cobot

Buy service robots ...

Starting in the autumn of 2021, the Low Cost Automation portfolio will boast its first cobot for service tasks.  The electronic components in the fully integrated ReBeL strain wave gear  allow human-robot collaboration capabilities. The ReBeL robot is suitable for:

  • Industrial and private applications as cobot or service robot
  • Mobile applications
  • Collection and delivery services
  • Pick & place tasks
  • Assembly aid

Build service robots

... or build one yourself

On the basis of the ReBeL gearbox, an individual robot can be designed as a cobot with joining links thanks to the additional electronic components.  The ReBeL gearbox can be used along the last axis of an articulated arm, linear robot or delta robot – in front of various gripper systems, for example. The cobot gearbox system with fully integrated gearboxes helps implement a wide variety of cobot concepts quickly. The plug-and-play solution means that the user doesn't have to worry about power electronics.
