This eliminates the need for safety guarding and greatly reduces the footprint of the robotic cell. This new line of robots can be integrated in a wide number of applications including material handling, assembly, pick-and-place and machine loading/unloading applications.
The CR35iA offers a payload of 35 kg and a reach of 1,811 mm. The robot is designed to operate in close proximity to humans in a shared workspace without the need for safety fences. The green robot cover is padded to reduce impact forces pinch points by providing a soft barrier between a human operator and a robot arm.
ESS designs the robot end-of-arm tooling (EOAT) to securely pick and place cases in a pre-programmed pattern. In applications requiring a deck sheet or tier sheet, the same robot and tooling performs these functions. When integrated with serialization track-and-trace systems, the robot may also be programmed to hold case labels over cameras or barcode scanners to verify the pallet load or provide automatic reject of incorrectly labeled cases.
