New generation of strain wave gears from igus
Have you been looking for a cost-effective and lightweight strain wave gear for your robot system? The new drylin strain wave gears offer compact, easy-to-assemble and self-lubricating performance thanks to the use of igus tribopolymer materials. The new strain wave gears that were developed in order to generate accurate movement along the 5th robot axis are part of the continually growing range of products for low cost automation.
By using self-lubricating high performance plastics, the gears require very little maintenance and have an especially long service life. Friction, backlash and wear are improved in contrast to metal gears. At the same time, the use of plastics enables an extremely compact design and cost-effective manufacture.
The strain wave gears are ideal for end-of-arm tooling/grippers on linear robots, articulated arms, and delta robot systems. They are suitable for direct connection of NEMA17 stepper motors and can easily be adapted to other types of motors.
