Whether the snack dispenser in an office, the reverse vending machine in a shop or an ATM on the street, they all have to
Why use automation in the laboratory?Many small laboratories want to optimise their processes and increase their throughput rates but recoil at the frequently high costs and time-consuming integration work, when only simple combinations of devices or magazines are required…
What solution is technically best at the PoC or in an automated laboratory?
Unfortunately, there is no single answer to this question, so we will tackle it by contrasting various concepts that take into account a wide variety of applications involving automated pipetting devices…
Lean automation: igus Robot Control with 21 digital inputs and outputs Behind Low Cost Automation is cost savings and great productivity provided by modularity, user-friendliness and reliability. To make robot programming and control even easier, igus has added the igus Robot Control to its Low Cost Automation range. What is special here is that up to 21 […]
A group of bachelor graduates developped an automated 3D game with robolink® (4 axis RL-D-RBT-3322-BC-AE in this case). They used Beckhoff control electronics for the complete unit.

When I talk about low-cost automation, it reminds me of all projects I have participated in the past 13 years. For recent years, we have been focusing on providing linear bearing parts and some linear module products for OEMs. Our products are always found to be used to do some incredible things, but we have […]
Custom design robolink robot arm ensures fast automation and a new shopping experience From industrial use, robots are increasingly finding their way into the retail trade. There they ensure rapid automation of processes and are also a real eye-catcher. Users place high demands on design and reliability at a cost-effective price. For this reason, igus […]
igus motor control systems D3 and D1 dryve for simple or complex control of linear systems In addition to its drylin E linear axes with DC motors, igus has now developed a cost-effective and easy-to-use control system. The D3 dryve controls linear systems completely without software or PC. Furthermore, igus has also further improved its […]
Fast entry into Low Cost Automation using a digital twin in intuitive robot control To programme robots with ease, igus has now developed control software for its Low Cost Automation solutions. igus robot control is available online free of charge and offers the user an easy introduction to automation. Different robot kinematics can be programmed […]
AGVs become lighter and require less maintenance thanks to lubrication-free motion plastics In times of increasing digitalisation of factories and warehouses, automated guided vehicles (AGVs) are continuously conquering intralogistics. The reliability requirements are high in order to ensure faster processing and unimpeded material flow. AGV manufacturers are therefore equipping their systems with motion plastics components […]
