Turin – Italy --- Comau presents the extension of its small robot family for quick applications in restricted spaces, including handling, assembly and pick&place, by introducing two new robots – Racer5-0.63 and Racer5-0.80. Both are controlled by the R1C 19" rack-mounted controller, which can be integrated into a single cabinet to control an entire line. The robots are also available in the openROBOTICS version where the robot is directly integrated into the existing machine/line automation controlled by B&R technologies.
In doing so, Comau keeps the promise made last June with the launch of the Racer3, when it announced a competitive presence in the small machine sector within a year. Both robots are built on the Racer3 technological platform, thus offering solutions which share the same components and parts, in a strategy aimed at expanding the integrated range of robots.
In detail, the two new robots expand the capacity of Racer3 in terms of payload and reach. Racer5-0.63 features a reach of 630mm and payload of 5kg. Racer5-0.80 is also rated for a payload of 5kg, but has an extended reach of 809mm. All the other features of Racer3 remain the same, including the sectors and applications for which they are suited: handling, assembly and pick-&-place.
