RNA showcases the world’s leading Collaborative Robot at Southern Manufacturing 2015
So called Collaborative Robots, which are designed to work alongside humans without fencing are opening up a huge number of new possibilities for robotic automation. RNA is exhibiting the ground breaking UR5 model from Universal Robots based in Denmark. Universal Robots’ lightweight robot is 6-axis, weighing 18 kg and with a 5 kg payload arm. It has a speed rating of 1m per second and runs on single-phase AC power and has a typical pay back of 6 months. The UR10 variant is also available with double the payload.
With a footprint of only 149mm, the collaborative robot arm will demonstrate how humans and robots can work together safely. With no guarding needed there is less space requirement and the robots can easily be redeployed to a new task. Visitors to the stand N61 will have the chance to interact with a LIVE robot and experience the simplicity of programming.
Alongside the collaborative demo will be RNA’s standard Glass Disc Vision Inspection System. Designed to inspect above and below a component, this flexible solution provides 100% quality assurance for a wide range of parts at speeds of up to 2,000 per minute.
