  • Offer Profile

    A conventional jointed-arm robot is often not sufficient for many industrial applications. Our two managing directors have decades of experience in complex mechanical engineering, coupled with an extensive knowledge of the problems and hurdles that can arise in production processes with industrial robots.

    We started to develop a solution where no higher-level measurement technology was needed to achieve the required high-precision kinematics. Our solution had to be lean, efficient, and easy to use. Does this seem impossible? Not for us. We managed to simply achieve all these requirements with our linrob.

    The result is a linear robot that covers all areas of large-format automation.

        • Precision Guiding

        • Our guideways are maintenance-free due to lifetime lubrication. All running surfaces are made of steel wire. And bimetal effects are avoided by the base body made of aluminum.
        • Backlash-Free Precision Drives

        • A compact unit consisting of a combination of motor, gearbox and controller is installed in our system axles. In addition, a linrob has linear scales for absolute position determination.

        • 3D-Control (SPACEMOUSE)

        • Instead of programming the machine with software, manual programming with a SpaceMouse is also possible. With this, the entire system is very easy to operate and an effortless and intuitive movement to any position in the working area is possible.

        • Precision Aluminum Extrusions

        • Our FE-supported profile design enables us to achieve extremely high rigidity. With the help of T-slots, any peripheral equipment can be easily adapted.

        • Internally Routed Cables

        • We have laid all the cables that a linrob needs inside the axle, which significantly reduces the risk of errors. The only two cables leading to the machine are a 230V power cable and a data cable. You therefore only need a conventional power socket to put a linrob into operation.

        • Integrated Control

        • Our control system has a TCP/IP interface for the integration of peripheral devices. Thanks to the OPC/UA interface, a linrob is Industrie 4.0 and IIoT capable. In addition, the control still has programmable digital inputs and outputs.

        • Multi-Color LED Bar

        • Each LED is individually programmable, providing visual feedback on the current machine status.

        • Quick and Easy Installation of the Axles

        • Thanks to the connecting plates matched to the profiles, stretchable line connections and the cast slides, our axles can be easily plugged together, avoiding incorrect assembly.

      • What Distinguishes LINROB From Other Linear Robots & Range Extenders

          • Infinity Range

          • Achieve more than ever before. Thanks to expandable axle design, LINROB adapts to your requirements at any time. When it comes to the basic axle, we can achieve an application range of up to 80 meters.

          • Easy-of-Use

          • We offer you unprecedented simplicity, whether in terms of configuration, installation, or daily use. Programming your linrob is simple, too, via your web browser or a fully integrated app, such as URCap.

          • Ready-to-Go

          • Waiting weeks or even months for your linear system? Not with linrob! Thanks to our series production based in Germany, we are able to deliver within a very short time. The fact that our axes are delivered ready-to-work allows for an easy assembly and commissioning in just a few hours.

          • Safety Integrated

          • Safety is a top priority at linrob. Our simple plug-and-play system makes integrating safety sensors simpler than ever and enables coworking of cobot and human without a safety fence. A brake is built into the lift axle by default. Each linrob is based on 48V technology.

          • Digital Services

          • You are not sure if your application can be realized? We will provide you with a simulation of your application in advance (proof of concept). With linrob, you also don't have to wait for days for support when there is a bug in the system. With the included digital twin and our remote services, we can simply provide help remotely.

          • Seamless Integration

          • You want to increase the application range of your cobot? Thanks to common interfaces, you can simply integrate any cobots and small robots with our range extender. linrob can be seamlessly integrated as a base-of-arm product. Even if you want to run several different systems/robots on one axle.

        • From Request To Assembly

            • 1. Consultation

            • Remotely or in our showroom in Mannheim. We discuss your configuration with you and advise you before you decide to work with LINROB

            • 2. Manufacturing

            • Immediately after your order, our production starts with the construction of your axes.

            • 3. Delivery

            • Within 14 days, your order will be delivered ready-to-go.

            • Assembly At Your Site

            • Since our axle system only needs to be plugged into place on site, the entire system can be set up within a few hours. Of course, we will assist you in the process.
          • News

              • linrob GmbH celebrates its third birthday

              • More than 10 years ago, our two company founders already worked together. At that time, Andreas was still manufacturing design milling machines and Rainer was selling high-precision laser measuring technology. Even then, they both noticed that the wrong technology is often used for many applications. Most people reflexively turn to large articulated-arm robots for large-volume applications. However, these have poor repeatability and positioning accuracy. In addition, large robots often get in their own way and cannot properly approach positions at short distances. The use of the more inefficient technology is still regularly observed today. For this reason, Andreas and Rainer set themselves the goal of simply making robotics better.
              • Doosan Integration

              • Together with Niederrhein Automation, we have worked on making our linrob linear axles compatible with the Doosan software. This means that any Doosan cobot can be easily connected to any possible configuration of our linrob axles and the entire automation sequence can be programmed within a few minutes.

                First, we mounted a Doosan cobot on our linrob RE 3.3 and coupled them together. Within a very short time, it was possible to operate the cobot and the linear robot with the Doosan control system.
