Advancing Automation: Igus ReBeL Cobot with High-Performance Finger Gripper

The human hand on the igus ReBeL cobot is today made of high-performance, lubrication-free plastics.

Robots, particularly as cooperative robots or “cobots,” like the igus ReBeL, are progressively making their way into small and medium-sized businesses. With the aid of cameras and electrical or vacuum gripping systems, these robots sort, pick, and move objects. Igus has created a finger gripper for the ReBeL cobot so that it can handle more tasks in the individual style. It is cost-effective and simple to integrate because it is made completely of lubrication-free plastics.

Igus ReBeL is a small, lightweight cobot that allows for relatively low investment in robotics, making it especially well suited for assembly tasks, quality checks, and in-service applications. Grabpers and vacuum cups are required for the robot to function effectively, and igus today provides a wide range of end-effectors from different suppliers on the market RBTX.com. The ReBeL finger gripper is its newest product release.

Affordable Automation: Igus ReBeL Cobot and Finger Gripper for Versatile Applications

According to Adam Sanjurgo, low-cost automation manager at igus UK,”The ReBeL is light and cheap, with a weight of about eight kilograms and starting from £4200 it is widely used in applications that humans would normally do.” “A mechanical hand that can be easily connected to the ReBeL via plug-and-play has therefore received a number of customer inquiries.

In response, igus created a specially affordable ReBeL finger gripper that can be purchased for as little as £2,668. All ReBeL models are suitable with the human hand. It can be easily integrated and flexible in a variety of applications because it is controlled by DIO at the Tool Center Point. The finger gripper’s unique ability to mimic people hand movements is its unique quality. The ReBeL can carry out a variety of straightforward human tasks and applications, particularly in research and thanks to its innovative low-cost hand.

According to Sanjurgo, tasks in commercial kitchens or the entertainment sector are even possible for development at universities.

High-performance plastics guarantee accurate movements.

The control system, cables, and flange mount are all delivered straight from igus. The lower cost is partially attributable to the high-performance, lubrication-free plastics. The simple bearings in the joints made of iglidur polymers allow for easy and precise movements of the individual fingers while remaining absolutely fresh, in addition to being cost-effective and lubrication-free. The 3,800m2 laboratory in Cologne’s intensive igus testing ensures the human hand has a longer lifespan. They can be controlled by a variety of interfaces, including internal scripting, USB, and TTL (5V) serial. Igus offers additional products for these cobots, also known as the” ReBeL Environment,” in addition to the finger gripper. These include a devoted workstation, connection cables, gripper sets, adapter plates, sixth axis, and fireproof hoods.
