Robot components that are low-cost for building custom automated solutions

Robot components from igus® are ideal for creating your own robotic solution. Options range from fully integrated strain wave gear boxes perfect for our ReBeL cobot, to robotic joints and gearbox joints for modular use. Various sizes are available for most components to provide endless possibilities for combinations and applications. igus® robot components make creating your own custom robots as easy as possible, without sacrificing performance or quality. We even offer a robolink® designer tool to customize and order your own robotic arm, selecting components as you go. Like the majority of igus® products, our robot components utilize dry-running plastics to ensure both a lightweight composition and maintenance-free performance. The reduced wear from these polymers — thanks to not needing grease or other lubricants that can attract dirt and dust — extends service life, cutting down on costly machine downtime and maintenance costs.
  • Eliminate maintenance & reduce downtime
  • Lower costs than comparable alternatives
  • Resists dirt, dust & corrosion
