Material Handling Robots offer 700 or 900 mm reach.

September 8, 2014

Designed with no offset in axis two, IRB 1200 Series delivers long stroke that allows robot to be placed close to work piece and still be functional. Standard variants include 700 mm reach model with payload up to 7 kg, and 900 mm model with payload up to 5 kg. Both can be mounted at any angle and come with IP 40 protection as standard, with IP 67 protection optional. With Ethernet port, 4 air ducts, and 10 customer signals, robots can be integrated with other equipment. Read More

Grid Monitoring Relay ensures safe connection for wind turbines.

May 19, 2014

Ensuring safe, reliable, and proper grid connection at all times, CM-UFD.M33 (Grid Tie Relay) protects wind turbines from unstable grid activity or faults by disconnecting electric energy source from grid. Relay monitors voltage and frequency in single- and 3-phase grids and trips coupling switch when electrical values are not within set parameters. Upon fault detection, grid feeding monitoring relay sounds alarm, displays message, and signals alarm cause to control system. Read More

Simulation Software simplifies robotic pick-and-place design.

May 7, 2014

Combining RobotStudio and PickMaster 3 technologies into one bundle, Robot Studio Picking PowerPac simplifies design and programming of complex robotic picking-and-packing systems. Optimizing systems in 3D virtual environment before they are built in real world increases picking line performance while accommodating for such risks as variations in product inflow. Once cell configuration is complete, software provides fully functional picking cell simulation. Read More
