Igus to offer €1500 industrial robot

Igus to offer €1500 industrial robot

How low can the price of an industrial robot go? According to Justin Leonard, director at Igus, a key focus for a number of manufacturers is the €1500 robot, and Igus may just have stolen a march on the competition. A key introduction at the 2015 Hannover Fair was the Igus' Robolink D, a direct driven update of the original Robolink.

The moving joints are based on Igus' PRT slewing ring bearings, with prefitted motor technology and easy-to-use Wago control kit.

Robolink D is not yet an off-the-shelf product, and in typical style Igus is keen to do a lot of testing to really prove the technology. But certainly any interested parties who wanted to work with the company in the development could see Robolink D robots on their lines pretty quickly.

By targeting a price of £€1500, Igus is making a statement. "Nobody has yet addressed the low cost end of the robotics market, but there could be very high volume here," says Leonard. "We see a gap in the market and we see a hunger for the product."
