How the igus drylin delta robot handles the most delicate of tasks

The drylin delta robot is a cost-effective and lightweight modular system which can be used for the most delicate of pick-&-place tasks, even collecting Easter eggs.

The three NEMA stepper motors and encoders driving the belt axes ensure a pick rate of at least 60 per minute with a precision of ±0.5 mm. 

The complete system, which is available directly from stock as a kit or delivered pre-assembled ready to install, now features a calibrating pin for easy positioning at the zero point.

Its maintenance-free belt drive units, lubrication-free link rods, encoders and stepper motors combine to create a lightweight design. 

The typical ROI period for the drylin delta robot is estimated at just six months, which compares favourably to the industry’s rule-of-thumb target of two years.
