World first!
Modular system for lubrication-free movement
At Hannover Messe, we will be showing you a world first: robolink® D3, our completely new kind of modular system for lubrication-free movement. With only three different joints, you can design almost everything: from a simple one-dimensional traversing system to highly complex 6 DOF robot arms. Child's play for the engineer but with high-tech tribo performance.

At our trade fair stands, you will be able to see this and a further 107 new motion plastics® products.

We look forward to your visit and hearing about the problems you are having with wearing parts!
