Collaborative robots

The purpose of the collaborative robot, aka cobot, is to work together with human in production. Cobots are a new form of robotics for the for safe cooperation with humans for industrial and laboratory solutions. The cobot has been designed to be more sensitive than industrial robots. Cobots are also much lighter than the large-scale robots used in industry. Cobot shapes are more rounded and their wires and motors are built in, making the cobot compact and safe. A cobot does not require separate security systems such as a fence.

 

Programming is a child’s play

Cobot programming is either made easy by a user-interface on a touch panel or by manual control used to teach the cobot.

  • Cobots can be easily reprogrammed
  • No need for expensive third-party programmers when transferring the cobot to new tasks
  • With intuitive software, even an inexperienced user quickly learns the basics of programming and sets the stages simply by moving the cobot arm to the correct position
  • If the task is recurring, programs can be stored into cobots and reused

Thanks to its compact size and easy programmability, the cobot can be applied to several different tasks and therefore the utilization rate of the robot can be optimized. Cobot features bring new use applications where using a traditional robot is not sensible or economically viable.

 

 

Versatile use possibilities:

  • Item handling
  • Assembly and packaging
  • Quality control
  • Laboratory work
  • Small series production
  • Cleanroom work
  • Movement of items
  • Optimization of different production units

We are an official distributor of Universal Robots collaborative robots. We provide easy-to-install and programmable cobots for our customers to assist in deployment. We also provide maintenance and maintenance services. Universal Robots are the perfect choice when a collaborative robot is required, which must work safely and flexibly in cooperation with a person.

We also offer Universal Robots certified accessories from OnRobot and Robotiq to facilitate multiple roles of the cobot. In addition, we are authorized Mobile Industrial Robots partner.

OnRobot – cooperation with suitable gripper

OnRobot’s innovative Plug & Produce grippers help manufacturers make the most of the potential for cooperative robots. Grippers are easy to use, cost-effective and can be used safely alongside a human worker. The gripper can be attached directly to the arm of the cobot and easily programmed, thus accelerating the automation process considerably.

RG2 Gripper provides:

  • Plug & Produce feature, that is easy to mount, connect, install
  • Easy Installation, with self-installing software and programming from the UR teach pendant
  • Adjustable force and width detection
  • Possibility to install grippers between 0° to 180° at 30° steps
  • Versatility, that handles many different sized objects and is easily reconfigured
  • Infinite loop on UR3; no cables stopping the robot arm movement

Robotiq – today’s robot optimization

The Plug & Play devices offered by Robotiq are designed to be easy to install and operate. The devices can pick objects of different sizes and focus on human-robot interaction and interaction. The embedded Robotiq gripper visual user interface makes configuring and programming fast and intuitive.

Robotiq products include:

  • 2-Finger Adaptive Robot Gripper
  • 3-Finger Adaptive Robot Gripper
  • FT 300 Force Torque Sensor
  • Wrist camera

Robotiq gripper provides:

  • Easy integration with Universal Robots
  • Easy programming

MiR – flexible and independent goods transportation

Mobile Industrial Robots (MiR) offers automated, independent transport robots to make it easier for the user to focus on more important tasks. MiR’s independent robot has been created for the transfer of materials inside the production facility. MiR robot takes the most efficient route to its destination, safely avoiding obstacles and people. Thanks to its brilliant technology, MiR’s products can be used almost anywhere as attaching baskets, shelves and the co-operating robot’s hand, make it a versatile helper. With easy programmability, the robot can execute multiple different transportation tasks.

MiR product offers:

  • MiR100 – payload 100 kg (with MiRHook up to 300 kg)
  • MiR200 – payload 200 kg (with MiRHook up to 500 kg)
  • Transportation flexibility with different top modules
  • Safe maneuvering and easy programming
  • Fast return of investment – may be as little as one year
  • Workflow optimization and increase in productivity as workers can focus on non-transportation tasks
  • Possibility for production facility layout programming directly into the robot, leaving no need for changes to the production plant

PICK-IT – ROBOT VISION MADE EASY

Pick-it guides your robot to pick and place a wide range of products in different applications. The 3D camera can find overlapping products of varying sizes and materials, in glossy and matte colors, including with reflective surfaces and it continues working and poor conditions, even darkness. The Pick-it camera uses structured light to calculate the 3D image. The resulting image is accurate as the camera scans 300,000 points in real time at 30 frames per second. Pick-it calculates the depth and information of the products you want to be picked. The advantage over classic 2D camera’s is that the 3D camera does not require special light and has no problem with reflections. Pick-it is suitable for all major robots.

Pick-it is easy to set-up, no programming is needed

Pick-it offers two machine vision software’s that you can easily deploy in 15 minutes.

  • The Flex engine finds geometric shapes (cylinders, boxes, planes, circles, etc.)

Operators can choose a shape and set a range of sizes that need to be picked

  • The Teach engine can handle more complex 3D shapes

Operators can take a 3D picture of the product with Pick-it camera and system will look for this shape

Pick-it supports all the following robotic applications:

  • Machine loading
  • Bin picking
  • Depalletizing
  • Knitting and assembly
  • Pick and Place
