Common Robots’ UR20 collaborative robotic (cobot) is debuting its welding skills with Vectis Automation, Hirebotics, and Melton Machine & Management Firm at FABTECH. The UR20’s prolonged vary broadens the vary of weldments the cobot can obtain in a given fixture setup.
“Vectis Automation is ecstatic to supply the long-reach UR20 arm onto our built-in cobot welding and reducing instruments,” Josh Pawley, co-founder of Vectis Automation, mentioned. “This cobot could have a big impact in the marketplace, enhancing on UR’s already sturdy and high-performance cobot merchandise.”
The UR20 is Common Robots’ quickest and strongest cobot ever. It includes a 44 lb (20 kg) payload, 68.9 in (1750 mm) attain, ±0.002 (± 0.05 mm) repeatability and as much as 30% extra velocity and torque when in comparison with different UR cobots. All of UR’s cobots are energy and drive restricted (PFL) robots. Identical to the e-Sequence, the UR20 is licensed to each EN ISO 13849-1, Cat. 3 PLd and ISO 10218-1 by TÜV Nord.
“Coordinated movement permits fabricators to weld bigger or extra complicated components with out having to manually reposition the work piece or welding robotic,” Will Healy, International Phase Supervisor for Welding at Common Robots, mentioned. “This implies UR cobots can weld extra components per run for elevated effectivity and are able to welding larger and extra complicated components.”
Additionally at FABTECH, Common Robots companion Hirebotics will launch Beacon Suggestions, a brand new characteristic utilizing AI to suggest welding and reducing parameters when organising a component. This helps producers save time whereas additionally enhancing the standard of their welds and cuts. The corporate can also be launching its Cobot Cutter, which is the primary UR cobot-powered system for plasma reducing.
Moreover, Univeral Robots companion Kane Robotics will likely be debuting its GRIT system, which makes use of a UR10e cobot and FerRobotics ACF-Ok end-of-arm grinding software to automate the method of guide grinding and ending that comes after welding. This method works at twice the velocity of human technicians and may enhance materials elimination productiveness by 50-80%.
