The igus® robolink® ReBeL is put to the test. Is he just another #robot?Injection-moulded components make the robolink® ReBeL joint a cost-effective flyweight.
With the ReBeL series, igus® introduces for the first time low-cost robotics strain wave gears at HMI 2018, with which 6 DOF robots, i.e. with six axes, can be implemented. This prototype was created in collaboration with the company Commonplace Robotics GmbH and is fundamentally different to the previous robolink® joints: Instead of stepper motors, light, brushless direct current motors (BLDC motors), which already belong to the state of the art in service robotics, are used.
