What are Collaborative Robots?

Collaborative robots work with and alongside people safely by taking up the routine and mundane tasks while relieving people for more creative and productive jobs.

Design Engineering & Integration

The edgeless design of the robot avoids injuries due to direct contact of the user with the robot.

Modularilty of the robot helps reducing production costs while enabling the company to provide wide range of product solutions.

Quick Release Manual Tool Changer

'

A quick release tool changer enables people in factories to change over between tasks very quickly.

If the user wants the collaborative robot to be deployed for a pick & place application .He/she would want to replace the existing screwdriving tool with a two-finger gripper very quickly as shown in the below images

Application Visualization

Line Manufacturing

I created this illustration to show how traditional manufactruing is rigid and unresponsive to change in demand.

Matrix Manufacturing

I created this illustration to show how the future of manufacturing is going to look like to people with no engineering background.

How it Works

I created this illustration to show how the robot can operate in unstructed environements and is safe around people.

Versatility

I created this illustration to show the versatility of the robot in a factory environment.

This skecth evolved into the matrix manufactruing illustration above.

Application Case Stories

CASE STORY # 1
Machine Tending at Zuti Engineering Solutions

The production manager at Zuti was having a really hard time watching the machine operators just waiting for the machines to complete their job while only one-fourth of the operators time was spent in planning and programming. Therefore Zuti wanted to deploy collaborative robots to relieve their operators for more creative and productive work.

We deployed an SR-L6 robot for machine tending. We used a two three-finger dual gripper for saving operation time. The operator used a Lenovo tablet to teach and control the robot.

CASE STORY # 2
Nozzle Inspection

We have used an SR-L3 robot to perform quality inspection of nozzle hole size. The robot is installed with an internal torque sensor which helps the robot to know which nozzle to reject nd which nozzle to accept

If the nozzles hole size is smaller than the needle size on the robot, the tip of the needle comes in contact with the nozzles body applying force on the needle which is detected by the force-torque sensor and with the feedback given by the sensor, the robot will know that the nozzle is rejected.

If the nozzles hole size is larger than the needle size on the robot, the shank of the needle comes in contact with the nozzles body applying force on the needle which is detected by the force-torque sensor and with the feedback given by the sensor, the robot will know that the nozzle is rejected.

The robot accepts nozzles which match the needle size on the robot.
