igus has launched low-cost robot, robolink DP, known for its high-performance polymers, in custom design. It is aimed at addressing high demands on design and reliability at a cost-effective price. 

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. 

New buying behaviour is increasingly building up the competitive pressure on the stationary retail trade. Intelligent automation systems for fast shopping are in demand, in the supermarket as well as in the furniture store. Solutions can be automatic juice dispensers, bread slicers or self-service cash registers with weighing technology, in which igus motion plastics - such as lubrication-free iglidur plain bearings and maintenance-free drylin linear guides - ensure wear-resistant movements. At the same time, retailers such as fashion houses and restaurateurs have to develop the store and design concepts that offer customers a new experience. Robots are a popular tool of choice because they are not only a real eye-catcher, but also a practical automation solution. They can give out prizes from raffles, mix cocktails or even cover a pizza with toppings. So far, expensive fun that is rarely found in Germany. With its robolink DP, igus now offers a new cost-effective solution directly from stock, which the customer can design individually.

Last year, igus presented for the first time its robolink DP robot arm, which largely consists of plastic components. Today, the customers can design their robot arm of choice, with four or five axes. The user can freely use the RAL colour palette either for the corporate design of the company or as a barista robot in an elegant white look. The compact, lightweight robolink DP makes comprehensive use of the advantages of igus motion plastics in production: light, lubrication-free and maintenance-free, quiet, durable and cost-effective. The new articulated arm can be configured individually via the platform RBTX.com and, depending on the type of application, can be equipped with grippers, cameras or sensors from a wide range of manufacturers. At the EuroShop in Düsseldorf in Hall 11, Stand E40, igus will be showing visitors the possibilities robolink DP offers for stationary retail trade.
