The Racer5 COBOT features a 5 kg payload, and a 809 mm reach with 0.03 mm repeatability. However, the key differentiating feature for the robot is that it can switch between industrial and collaborative robot speeds.
Comau said its new MATE-XT exoskeleton is designed to be resistant to environmental conditions, is EWS-certified for reducing biomechanical risk, and can provide a demonstrable ROI.
Sinumerik Run MyRobot /DirectControl makes a separate robot control system unnecessary and enables more dynamic applications, said Siemens and Comau.
The global robotics market will continue to be affected by China’s manufacturing slowdown and trade tensions with the U.S., says international analyst Georg Stieler as he looks ahead to 2020.
Many of the most visible demonstrations of exoskeletons have been for assisting people with disabilities. However, limitations of weight, power, and cost have resulted in slow rates of adoption. In the meantime, the technology continues to advance, with industrial exoskeletons providing application experience. While the majority of today’s $130 million wearable robotics market is for…
The BioRobotics Institute spin-off Iuvo has received an undisclosed joint investment from automation company Comau and orthopedics group Össur to support the development of wearable intelligent robotic exoskeletons. The spin-off, founded in 2015, looks to focus initially on research and development and an eventual launch of new wearable robotic technologies, according to a release from…
After releasing its Racer3 robot last year, Comau is once again expanding its small robot family for quick applications in restricted spaces, including handling, assembly and pick-and-place operations. Two new robots—Racer5-0.63 and Racer5-0.80—are both controlled by the R1C 19-in. rack-mounted controller, which can be integrated into a single cabinet to control an entire line. The […]
Comau introduces Rebel-S, its own 4-axis SCARA robot, in 5 different models with a payload of 6kg and 3 different reaches. All models are controlled by the R1C 19″ rack-mounted controller, which can be integrated into a single cabinet to control an entire line. The robots are also available in the openROBOTICS version, where the […]
Comau continues its growth in the Robotics sector, and for the third consecutive year has recorded a double-digit increase in articulated robot sales. Similarly, the results in individual industries reflect the global growth trend, which is even more significant as it underlines the success of Comau’s market penetration strategies. In particular, the increase in 2015 […]
