Robolink D components kit for humanoid robot

Now making it even easier for developers to configure and build a fully-articulated arm, with up to six 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 20, 30 and 50mm sizes. In addition to the joints, the kit comprises 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.
