Components kit for humanoid robot
18 March 2016
Designed to make it even easier for developers to configure and build a fully-articulated arm, with up to 6 degrees of freedom, is the modular robolink D components kit from igus.
Central to the kit are the direct drive articulated joints, based on self-lubricated PRT slewing ring bearings, a worm gear and NEMA 17 or 23 stepper motor, these plastic joints are available in three sizes: 20, 30 and 50. In addition to the joints, the kits comprise different connection elements made of plastic or steel.
Whether used as individual components, or as a complete solution, the modular design of robolink D allows a high degree of flexibility to be maintained. The designer is free to select their own control solution, with many options available, including stepper motor control cards, PLCs or educational solutions.
