Shopping and ordering online is now part of everyday life.
Consumers can now order fashion items, electrical goods, holidays, groceries, lunch or dinner at the click of a mouse.
But these new shopping habits are putting added pressure on retail trade.
To remain competitive, retailers are now turning to intelligent automation systems for fast shopping solutions.
This includes automatic juice dispensers, bread slicers or self-service cash registers with weighing technology.
For reliability and to reduce downtime, such equipment must have wear-resistant movements – and this is where igus motion plastics shines.
Robots ‘a popular tool of choice’
Lubrication-free iglidur plain bearings and maintenance-free drylin linear guides from Treotham Automation deliver a cost-effective solution.
Using intelligent automation systems retailers such as fashion houses and restaurants can develop 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 Australia. With its igus robolink DP, Treotham now offers a new cost-effective solution, 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. The customer now has the option of designing the robot arm as he wants, 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.
