Comau is increasing its product portfolio with the N-220-2.7 (N-220), a 220 kg payload robotic that includes a modular arrange, direct kinematics, absolute calibration and enhanced algorithms. These traits ship ease of use, simple integration and quicker post-installation upkeep whereas making certain precision, flexibility, repeatability and minimal backlash, based on the corporate.
Manufactured through a totally automated manufacturing line straight in Comau’s Turin, Italy Innovation Middle of Superior Robotics, the corporate’s elevated technology robotic gives new ranges of high quality and provide chain flexibility along with cost-effective operation, as required by at present’s high-growth market segments.
For the reason that Seventies, Comau has developed robotics purposes for the automotive trade. With the introduction of the extra succesful, versatile and efficient N-220, the corporate hopes to consolidate its place in automotive whereas enabling enlargement in high-growth trade segments together with steel, meals and drinks, achievement and plastic and chemical substances.
“Primarily based on the 2021 IFR (Worldwide Federation of Robotics) Report, we count on 160-220 kg payload articulated robots to characterize an estimated 30% of the full put in market, composed of 250,000-300,000 models in 2022, with a possible Compound Annual Progress Fee (CAGR) ’22-’26 of two%” Nicole Clement, chief advertising and marketing officer at Comau, mentioned. “This new technology robotic, which strengthens our product portfolio, generates clear buyer benefits because of its progressive design and state-of-the-art superior robotics expertise; thus permitting us to higher goal new, high-growth trade segments past conventional manufacturing, with the purpose of enhancing cost-effective automation for companies of all sizes.”
Comau’s N-220 is on the market instantly on a worldwide foundation.
Comau’s N-220 industrial robotic options an progressive architectural method based mostly on progressive modularity, part discount, superior motors and APC drivers. With its broad working space and Efficiency Stage D cartesian security options, the excessive payload (220 kg) robotic can function inside an enormous vary of industries together with automotive, meals and beverage and achievement and logistics, amongst others. It has a hole forearm and an built-in software dressing. The N-220 robotic additionally advantages from its use of direct kinematics, absolute calibration and developed movement algorithms. All of which mix to ship excessive repeatability and precision. Moreover, the robotic comes fitted with built-in forklift adapters and non-compulsory high-torque washers for automated anchoring base fixing, simpler relocation and quicker set up.
The primary of a brand new technology of 6-axis articulated robots, N-220 addresses the precise market want for cost-effective and straightforward to combine robotics that additionally ship high-speed industrial efficiency. The holistic design and modular structure of the N-220 additionally make it simpler to put in, use and keep. Manufactured on the Comau headquarters in Grugliasco (Torino), Italy utilizing a state-of-the-art robotic meeting line, it reliably automates meeting, spot welding, packaging and materials dealing with operations, along with steady course of purposes comparable to 3D printing and gluing.
Comau’s e-Movement software program algorithm improves cycle time, movement high quality and path management. Due to using a nitrogen balancing system on axis 2, and bigger stroke-ends on axis 3, the N-220 take pleasure in elevated agility and a large backward working space that’s ideally suited for bending and dealing with purposes. And since the N-220 makes use of solely two motor sizes, and a single oil sort, changing a defective motor turns into fast and straightforward. A further good thing about the simplified, modular structure is simpler total upkeep and improved Imply Time Between Failure (MTBF) resulting from a 50% discount of robotic componentry.
Recognizing that the combination pace has a direct influence on manufacturing potential, the N-220 implements Nodal speech-based coding language for open, simple programming. The simple dressing answer is made from two, separate, versatile harnesses (robotic and software energy provide) which facilitate a straightforward and quick improve, or substitute. Equally, the direct meeting between the motor and gearbox simplifies mechanical transmissions and minimizes energy loss and backlash, thus rising effectivity and decreasing consumption. In brief, every thing has been designed to maximise efficiency, sturdiness, security, maintainability and ease of use.
“Comau has leveraged its long-standing expertise in industrial robotics to reply to the rising want for new-generation automation that can be cost-effective and straightforward to make use of,” Pietro Ottavis, chief expertise officer at Comau, mentioned. “It’s the fitting product on the proper time.”
