With a top TCP* speed of 2.500 mm/s, the COBOTTA PRO is one of the fastest collaborative robots in the industry. Its speed is on par with that of a 5-and 6-axis robot during high-speed operation. Acceleration increases by mounting a proprietary, high-rigidity torque sensor on its lightweight, slim arm axes.
Proprietary torque sensor
We developed a super-lightweight, high-rigidity, high-precision torque sensor module that doesn’t exhibit a reduction in control performance, even during high-speed operation. The sensor makes it possible to use high-output motors and increase acceleration, helping realize some of the highest speeds of any collaborative robot.
Extensive internal wiring
Air piping, Ethernet, and signal wires are installed inside the slim arm, all the way up to the flange on its end. This reduces the risk of wiring break and to increase usability.
Safety that maximizes productivity
The COBOTTA PRO delivers a mix of productivity and safety by maximizing its operating speed when no workers are nearby while minimizing the distance needed to slow or stop when workers approach. The COBOTTA PRO safeguards worker safety by augmenting proprietary torque sensors, which are standard equipment at each axis, with functional safety like torque, speed, and area monitoring. In addition to enhancing arm design and functional safety, we developed a new scene function.
The scene function is a function to configure and switch safety parameters according to each process. Safety parameters can be set by the user for each work scene. The created scenes can be switched from the robot programmer at any time. The created scenes can be switched from one robot programmer to another. Risk assessment according to the task is realized.
Touch sensing soft cover
Our optional touch sensing soft cover further reduces collision risk and helps improve productivity safely. The touch sensing soft cover features a two-layer design consisting of a soft silicon cover and a high-sensitivity built-in sensor. When a collision is detected, the built-in sensor reacts at high speed to immediately stop the robot. The soft cover minimizes the impact force on human workers by absorbing the collision. As a result, installing the soft cover increases the speed of collaborative operation. Of course, the COBOTTA PRO is compliant as a collaborative robot with or without a soft cover.
User friendly teaching
With the newly developed direct teach function for COBOTTA PRO, it is possible to create even complex tasks which require a high degree of precision quickly and easy. With optional functions such as fine adjustment and plane surface alignment, direct teaching is further simplified even for complex applications.
Fine direct teaching
The inching function enables precise teaching on the order of 0.1 mm by letting you move the arm by the specified unit of distance. Since you can perform fine adjustments using direct teaching alone, you can realize intuitive teaching for elaborate tasks like mating and insertion of parts. The plane alignment function automatically moves in the vertical direction relative to a plane configured in advance by three-point teaching. It simplifies the process of setting up diagonal vertical movements, helping make teaching part insertion and assembly tasks less labor- and time-intensive.
Simple, intuitive programming
By using BLOCKLY, a visual intuitive programming language, even beginners can create advanced robot applications, while avoiding any syntax errors. Simple drag-and-drop operation by connect blocks from a library. Original icons make it easy to visually identify operations, ensuring the system can be learned quickly. Even beginners can create programs in a short period of time.
The COBOTTA PRO supports the CRC9, based on the RC9 robot controller. Like the RC9, the CRC9 provides integrated equipment control and an integrated development environment. In addition, it can be combined with 2D/3D vision as well as general-purpose AI software to automate manual tasks that would be highly difficult to accommodate using conventional methods.
Compact RC9 controller
The CRC9 robot controller, exclusively designed for COBOTTA PRO, provides integrated equipment control. It automates complicated manual work such as assembly and inspection tasks. Moreover, it can be deployed in a small space, eliminating the need for significant changes to existing manufacturing lines.
Open development environment
A key feature of the CRC9 robot controller, which supports the COBOTTA PRO, is its open development environment. In the past, functions could only be implemented within the scope of the robot manufacturer's development environment, which made it impossible to implement functions in the real-time layer. By contrast, the CRC9 allows not only the manufacturer but also users and system integrators to develop in the same environment, broadening the range of applications that can be automated.
Arm with built-in force sensor
The arm incorporates a force sensor, allowing a more compact design for the hand and surrounding hardware. Force control is possible with the compliance function and a force sensor.
Robot-limited orientation (RLO) is a function for controlling the orientation of the end effector, combined with the scene function. COBOTTA PRO can avoid hazardous collisions with operators, simplifying risk assessment.
Cleanliness classification protection Class 5
COBOTTA PRO is optional available in clean room Class 5 (Clean type) related to ISO14644-1).
