Series of robot joints using state-of-the-art technology to design customized collaborative robotic systems based on application
Available in 5-sizes (14-17-20-25-32) joints can be used in a wide range of applications as single units to deal with accurate rotational engagements with high torque and minimum size thanks to a harmonic drive reducer, which can be defined with various reduction ratios
J-14, one of the smallest joints in the world, allows high speed rotation while maintaining 28 Nm maximum torque
J-32, based on a high performance torque motor, develops a maximum torque of 353 Nm and a nominal 220 Nm thanks to a high performance HD gearbox.
3 safety systems prevent possible collisions with human or objects: torque measurement through the control of the high resolution current, electronic measurement of the torsional rigidity of the reducer, contact detection device for a instantaneous/immediate response with sensitivity up to fractions of Nm.
Two 20bit magnetic technology encoders allow high positioning accuracy with a resolution of 1,000,000 levels of quantization on 360 ° of rotation
Each joint contains a very sophisticated electronic controller to communicate through EtherCAT bus with robot controller based on Robot Operating System (ROS), safety features during collaborative operations are assured with integrated sensors and accelerometers.
Solutions for the factory of the future
Dear Applicant Automationware
We are pleased to inform you that, following the expert evaluation and summarizing the final results of the agROBOfood Open Call Industrial Challenges, your Project Proposal “HyFlexyBot Flexible Robot “has been selected for funding.
“The proposal was presented with sufficient details. From the technical point of view, a standard application for packaging/palletizing in food industry is proposed using a new cobot based on the top of a mobile unit and integrated on ROS. The main novelty of the proposal is the easy reconfiguration and the cobot itself since it is unique on the market (25kg payload for collaborative robots). The business analysis was sufficiently presented, and the analysis was convincing. The socio-economic aspects were addressed as well. The team is well established and have the necessary expertise.
The proposal describes an autonomous mobile palletization system to be applied in food processing industry with special attention on non-contamination of food. The background is overall well explained. Impact and benefit are comprehensible. The system may be of additional interest, due to the current COVID-19 situation. Problems in the meet processing industry are named. The concept of providing an autonomous mobile platform plus a sophisticated robot arm appears as a good way of working in low structured environment.
The European Union has decided to grant a financial contribution for the implementation of agROBOfood through the Horizon 2020 Programme.
