Plastic technology specialist igus® now offers robot developers and laboratories a light, maintenance-free and corrosion-free series connection of joints. For example, humanoid systems, general lightweight construction, handling/automation, as well as photo/film tripods. The plastic joints can freely rotate and pivot (draw wire technology, 4 ropes per joint). By means of the aluminum/carbon fiber/plastic articulated arms, the pneumatic lines, hydraulic lines and all data cables are installed in a functionally reliable way to control the sensors and sensory organs. No expensive milling, no cutting, no tinkering, no hassles – everything made to measure from one source!
Moving masses are kept as low as possible
The actuators (motors, pneumatic and hydraulic systems) and control module (data processing, PC) are decoupled from the movement function and from the tools.
All heavy components can now be bundled centrally and only the light plastic frame part is moved.! Thereby the individual degrees of freedom can be separately controlled.
