igus' robotic solutions for a variety of industries will be on display at the upcoming Automate 2015 show in Chicago

igus will be displaying a variety of their motion plastic solutions for robotics at the Automate 2015 trade show, running March 23-26th at McCormick Place in Chicago. igus technical experts will be on hand to demonstrate and explain products like the Triflex RSP multi-axis cable carrier system with adjustable pneumatic retraction, DryLin E linear slide tables with integrated motor, and Robolink modular robotic joints, among others.

The Triflex RSP system is designed for cable guidance on robots performing complex movements. The adjustable pneumatic retraction system safely guides the cable package, and can be attached to various robotic models quickly and easily. Lightweight and space-saving, Triflex RSP is also available with optional monitoring system for robots whose program sequences frequently change, alternate, or are not 100-percent predictable.

DryLin E is a complete linear axis system plus motor, ready to fit into a variety of applications. DryLin E is the latest addition to the modular DryLin range of linear products. Ready to fit linear actuators and drive systems can be fitted either with lead screw drives or belts, and a variety of NEMA steppers, all available from stock and ready to ship in as early as today.

igus’ Robolink is a lightweight, maintenance and corrosion-resistant range of robotic joints for humanoid systems or other automated applications. The system is compact, offering multiple axes and degrees of freedom. Using Robolink, pressure is converted to tensile forces via cables, which mimic biological sinews. When compared to steel, Robolink is lower priced, and more energy efficient. A variety of drive/control systems are possible.
