DIDACTA, 19-23.02, Hall 7/ Booth D-067

Research, science and education are among the most important areas of applicationsfor cobots.

At this year’s education trade fair show didacta (February 19th –23rd 2019, hall 7, stand D 067)inCologne, DENSO Robotics will be presenting a real highlight:

COBOTTA, the innovative, compact and user-friendlyrobot for safe human-robot collaboration (HRC).

Thanks to its comprehensive safety features, its easy portability and usability, COBOTTA, the latest member of the company’s robot family, is setting new standards in the HRC segment. At the fair stand, visitors can experience COBOTTA’s easy programming first-hand by watching a freestanding robot model.

With a unit weight of only 4 kg and the control wiring integrated into the robot arm, COBOTTA is easy to transport and can be quickly put to work; thanks to its graphically designed App „COBOTTA World“, the robot is truly easy to operate. It makes it easy to program typical applications and pick & place tasks by using a tablet.

COBOTTA has been developed as an open-source platform and thus can be integrated into existing systems. With a loading capacity of up to 500 gr and its unique compact design, COBOTTA is particularly well suited for operating in small spaces and in direct collaboration with humans in lab environments in the medical or pharmaceutical industries. Thanks to this combination, COBOTTA complies with the requirements of ISO standards ISO 10218-1, ISO/TS 15066 and ISO 13849-1:2015 PLd Cat.3.

COBOTTA is particularly suited for working in confined spaces and in interaction with humans. A special focus was placed on safety: The robot features an inherently safe design (lightweight   arm without sharp edges or pinch points, minimal possible application of force and pressure thanks toadequately developed drive technology) and guarantees a “functional safety” by constantly monitoring torque and speeds of all axis. Last but not least, its speed (up to 1000 mm/sec.) has been adjusted to the interaction with humans; depending on the application and apriorrisk assessment, this makes a safety cell unnecessary.

Thanks to the fully integrated, built-in electrical gripperand a built-in A/F camera in the robot arm, combinedwith the standard programming Apps,users can easily createforce-controlled gripper applications as well as otherapplicationsin just a few minutes. This also enables 2D image recognition.

Usinganother app, ”Remote TP“, experts can also design complex applications using DENSO’s robot programming language PacScript withthe help ofa virtual robot teaching assistant.
