drylin® linear robots

A maintenance-free, cost-effective automation solution from igus®.

drylin® linear robots consist of various linear actuators that perform xyz linear movements. They are designed to glide instead of roll, which ensures quiet and smooth operation. The self-lubricating components are corrosion-resistant and maintenance-free. drylin® linear robots are also lightweight and cost up to 60% less than conventional linear robots.
Typical applications:

  • Pick and Place
  • Sort
  • Labelling 
  • Trade shows
  • Pipetting
  • And many more
igus® offers both single-axis line robots and multi-axis flat and room linear robots. Customised linear robots can be implemented according to your application parameters.

Application examples with our linear robots

Linear robot system automates research tasks

The MAPLE-PRO robot system from Flysorter automates the sorting of fruit flies for use in research laboratories. In this process, the animals are sucked in between the modules by a suction robot and sorted. Here the company relies on modular automation components from igus.

Room linear robot for maintenance-free cleaning system

The Camping Butler of W+F Engineering GmbH is used as a fully automatic cleaning system for septic tanks on camping sites.  Inside the Camping Butler is a drylin room linear robot that turns, empties and cleans the tank. The crux of the matter: all components from igus are lubrication-free, maintenance-free and corrosion-free and are therefore ideally suited for the hygienic cleaning system.
