The robolink® construction kit - modular and open

The robolink® range includes various joints, motors and connecting components. All components can be ordered separately. Therefore, it is possible to combine the robolink® joints and motors with special connecting elements. igus® provides CAD data for all components. In addition to the combination of our parts with self-made components, we offer the following combinations:

RL-DC (2-4 axes):

Directly driven joints with C-profile components as connecting element
robolink DC  

RL-WR (2-6 axes):

Rope-driven joints with round profile as connecting element
