Modular robotics

As specific as your needs – modular igus assemblies

igus specialises in developing robotics components made of durable, wear-resistant plastics. The basic idea of modular robotics is that various modules and components can be combined to create customised automation solutions. This enables companies to react flexibly to different requirements without the necessity of expensive, time-consuming new developments. Using low-cost components that still deliver high quality enables companies to implement automation solutions at lower costs. This can be especially attractive for small and medium-sized companies that want to automate their production processes, but have limited resources. Overall, the igus combination of modular design and Low Cost Automation offers the capability of creating tailor-made automation solutions for various industries. This not only promotes efficiency and productivity, but also contributes to manufacturing process modernisation.

Assemblies as single components

Gearbox assembly

Modular concepts allow different types of gearboxes – planetary gearboxes, strain wave gears, worm gears, etc. – to be flexibly integrated into automation systems. The modular properties of gearbox assemblies allow automation to be gradually expanded and adapted. Companies can add additional modules to improve their robotics systems' functionality without having to start from scratch. The modules offer precision, versatility, and adaptability in developing efficient automation systems that are low-cost while remaining high-performance.

igus linear guide group

Linear guide assembly

Linear guide assemblies are modular, so different elements such as rails, slides, and carriages can be combined to achieve the desired motion sequences. New modules can be added or replaced to meet the needs of different applications. This contributes to flexibility and enables companies to adapt and expand their automation solutions as needed without starting from scratch. They offer precision, flexibility, and cost-effectiveness to support companies as they develop and implement cost-effective, high-performance automation solutions.

Maximum freedom with assembly interoperability

Combine individual assemblies as needed

Assembly interoperability means that individual modules (robot arms, drive systems, grippers, or sensors) are designed to interact harmoniously. Standardised interfaces and communication protocols allow these assemblies to be developed independently, yet easily combined. This creates a modular principle that enables companies to assemble specific robot solutions from different components. Quick reactions to market changes can thus be undertaken and new products introduced. Companies do not have to develop new robots from scratch every time, but can instead reuse existing assemblies. Overall, “maximum freedom through assembly interoperability” represents a turning point in modular robotics. This approach opens a world of possibilities for companies to tailor their automation solutions to their exact needs.
