Looking for cost-effective automation with a fast return on investment?

RBTXpert from igus is a new service that helps you to select the right low-cost components, checks feasibility and provides support during commissioning.

The goal of is to bundle all possibilities of low-cost robotics on one platform and make it transparent and easy to use.

On this online platform, users have the opportunity to put together their own cost-effective robot solution with just a few clicks.

But not all users know from the outset exactly what they need for their automation project.

"For the customer, the focus is first on their individual application. And they know which tasks should be automated", says Jens Klärner, RBTX product owner. "The new RBTXpert now helps find the right components for this and the most affordable solution that works safely."

Automation made easy

At the beginning of every consultation is the question: "What do I want to automate?" To do this, the interested party simply selects a free desired appointment using RBTXpert and subsequently describes the project during the video call. The expert then takes care of the "how".

In the remote appointment, the feasibility is tested together in a live session by evaluating the advantages of different robot kinematics and accessories. The RBTXpert then prepares a binding fixed price offer.

Online marketplace

A wide selection of low-cost automation products is available on

The electro-mechanical basic framework is made up of articulated arm robots, delta robots and Cartesian robots from igus, amongst others, and also robots from other suppliers.

In the next step, this basic structure is supplemented by individual components from different manufacturers such as grippers, cameras and control systems.

The product range is being continuously expanded: for example, with igus innovations such as the fully integrated ReBeL tribo strain wave gear with motor, absolute encoder, force regulation and controller.

With the drylin Scara robots, a modular robot with four degrees of freedom will be available from summer onwards.

"This shows that: RBTX is getting bigger and more attractive for customers as well as providers of low-cost automation and brings both sides together", says Klärner.

"The customer can always be sure that all the different components will work together without any problems. The RBTXpert expands this range and helps to ensure that it is the right choice for the individual. This makes it even easier for many to get started with cost-effective automation with a quick return on investment."
