Components, advanced cable retraction systems, and modular, cost-effective robotic joints will be on display at Automate 2017 in Chicago, booth 2221.

Motion plastics specialist igus Inc. will be showing a wide range of components and solutions for automation and robotics at the upcoming Automate 2017 trade show held April 3-6, 2017 in Chicago’s McCormick Place in booth 2221.

Product experts will be on hand, and product demonstrations, inducing a Fanuc six-axis robotic arm featuring the igus triflex RSE cable retraction system, featuring lightweight yet rugged triflex R multi-axis cable carrier.

For lighter duty robotic applications, the cost-effective robolink D system offers a modular, customizable solution. The system is made up of self-lubricating joints and worm gears, run via stepper motor and available in three sizes. Components for all types of applications, including self-lubricating bearings, linear gantries, and more, will all be on display with samples and engineering information available.

The robolink D modular robotic joint system will be on display at the show in booth 2221.
