igus has unveiled what it says is “the first robot made of high-performance plastic”. At just 8 kg, ReBeL is the lightest in its class: a real lightweight robot.
The compact, space-saving design with an integrated control system in the base opens up completely new fields of application for service robotics.
In collaboration with people, the ReBeL takes on tasks in the event and gastronomy sector, for example as a reliable coffee enricher or as a machine loader in production.

In addition, users can choose between four or six degrees of freedom and thus adapt the ReBeL to their individual application scenario.
