Precise Automation Robots – Cartesian
Collaborative Cartesian Robot
Unlike many other collaborative robots that are intrinsically dangerous but operate in a collaborative mode, the PrecisePlace 100 Cartesian robot (PP100) is intrinsically safe and is designed to limit all collision forces all of the time. This permits users to safely access the robot’s active workspace while the robot is operating at full speed without requiring safety barriers. These barriers are expensive, consume a great deal of bench/floor space, obstruct access to equipment and reduce productivity. Furthermore, all control electronics, harnesses and power supplies are built into the PP100's structure, which results in an extremely compact device that saves space and set-up time. This novel collaborative, space saving design combined with a low cost, reliable mechanism and efficient t-bot drive make the PP100 an ideal choice for applications where size, safety, cost, and the combined productivity of automation and personnel are critical.
The lightweight PP100 comes out of the box fully assembled. It can be carried by one person, mounted on a table and, by plugging in just an AC power cord and an Ethernet cable, is ready to operate. Due to its collaborative design, small footprint, embedded controller and absolute encoder servo motors (which do not require any movement at start-up), it can greatly simplify workcell design, integration and implementation.
Powerful Motion Control
In addition to implementing special algorithms that enhance the collaborative nature of this robot, Precise’s Guidance Motion Controller (which is embedded in the robot base) provides many advanced features such as: kinematics for simplified programming; gravity balanced free mode teaching that allows the robot to be taught by manually leading the end effector; a vision interface for advanced sensing; absolute encoder servo motor control for quiet operation and motionless homing; and an embedded web server that permits the robot to be operated locally via a standard browser executed on a PC, a wireless tablet or remotely from anywhere in the world.
