Roeq, a developer of cell robotic gear, is constant its product line growth, with a acknowledged intention of “turning autonomous cell robots into highly effective, versatile, multi-tasking employees”.
At Automate 2023, the corporate is planning to debut the Roeq TMC130 resolution: a prime module and cart system for the Omron LD-90x that will increase payload from 90 kg (198 lb) as much as 130 kg (287 lb).
Developed in collaboration with Omron, the TMC130 resolution expands choices for purchasers to soundly and reliably use the compact LD-90x robotic for greater payload missions, even the place area is constrained.
The brand new product joins its “huge brother” the Roeq TMC500 introduced in September 2022, which doubles the payload capability of the Omron LD-250 robots.
Kyle Hable, group product supervisor, Omron Robotics and Security Applied sciences, says: “It’s been a pleasure collaborating with Roeq on this new cart system for our LD line.
“Merchandise just like the TMC500 and TMC130 not solely improve the payload of our cell robots, in addition they give prospects an off-the-shelf resolution that enormously simplifies their automation growth course of.”
Michael Ejstrup Hansen, Roeq managing director says: “Our first Omron product had a really optimistic market reception, and we’re trying ahead to displaying Automate audiences this new addition to the Roeq portfolio of high-quality cart programs.
“For patrons seeking to automate duties comparable to shortly shifting smaller, lighter cargo between work stations or cabinets – even in slender areas the place bigger carts are challenged – this is a perfect resolution.”
Hansen provides that extra merchandise are within the pipeline, together with a lifter which Roeq appears to be like ahead to showcasing later this yr.
Like different Roeq cart programs, the TMC130 can dock to the cart from each ends and affords the pliability of free area pick-up and drop-off, making it’s straightforward to adapt to nearly any office wants.
The TMC130 consists of mounting holes for equipment comparable to mild towers and the Roeq Cart130, permits straightforward adaptation for crates and shelving.
As with all Roeq options, the TMC130 system is designed to adjust to related security requirements, and it comes with Roeq Help software program for straightforward and constant set-up with the Omron cell robotic.
The brand new cart and prime module system works with Omron’s personal panel, has six wheels for straightforward maneuverability, and a facet laser equipment obtainable for elevated impediment avoidance.
The Roeq TMC130 system for the Omron LD-90x is predicted to be obtainable in the summertime of 2023 and could be seen within the Roeq sales space #4841 at Automate.
Excessive-payload prime rollers for MiR robots additionally showcased at Automate
Alongside the brand new Omron cart system, Roeq may even showcase its heaviest-duty prime curler, the TR1000, which transports items as much as 350 kg (700 lb) with Cell Industrial Robots’ MiR600 and as much as 1,000 kg (2,000 lb) with the MiR1350.
Hansen says: “The TR1000 is shortly turning into a preferred product, particularly throughout the automotive business the place inside transport of heavy payloads is essential to streamlined manufacturing.”
With dimensions of 56.5” x 45.7” (1435 mm x 1160 mm), the TR1000 accommodates giant in addition to heavy payloads, with adjustable curler pace from 0.01 m/sec to 0.17 m/sec. The curler’s built-in place sensor confirms right place of the AMR earlier than switch of products – an instance of security options which can be designed into Roeq merchandise.
The TR1000 is totally appropriate with the award-winning Roeq GuardCom system for secure, dependable, and environment friendly switch of fabric to and from conveyor stations, with out counting on probably unstable Wi-Fi connections.
