The 6 DoF Rebel cobot: Cost-effective & lightweight with plastic modular gearbox

The new ReBeL (Robotic embedded-BDLC & electronics Link) robot offers applications as both a cobot and service robot, with Human-robot collaboration (HRC) capabilities. The ReBeL offers six degrees of freedom, allowing for a wider variety of applications. The outer contour and mechanical components of the ReBeL utilize igus® plastic polymers, making it particularly inexpensive and the lightest cobot on the market.

Technical Data:

  • Kinematic elements/design: articulated robot arms
  • Number of axes: 6
  • Reach: 600mm total
  • Nominal reach: 350mm
  • Application: service robotics
  • Angular speed: 90°/s
  • Final TCP speed (full load): 250mm/s
  • Dynamics with 500g payload (picks/min): 10
  • Load capacity, including tool: 2kg
  • Repeatability: +/- 1mm

RebeL Configurator

Use the Rebel configurator

The ReBeL cobot doesn’t require a control panel, and instead uses our robotic arm configurator to program and test various applications in advance. Need to program multiple robots for different tasks? The configurator can do just that! The software is easy to use and ideal for beginner programmers. It comes with pre-programmed projects as well, helping to get you started right away!

DIY Build Yourself with our Rebel Strain Wave Gears

On the basis of the ReBeL® modular gearbox, an individual robot can be designed as a cobot with joining links thanks to the additional lightweight robotic components.  The ReBeL® gearbox can be used along the last axis of an articulated robot arm, gantry  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.
