Staubli shows new TX2 robots at Automate 2017 expo

Apr '17
Staubli, makers of high-speed textile machinery in Switzerland, is showing its new TX2 line of collaborative robots to the North American market at the ongoing Automate trade show in Chicago, a leading solutions-based expo of automation technologies in North America, from April 3 to 6, 2017, in booth #1240, in the new era of Man-Robot Collaboration (MRC).

The line of six-axis machines and corresponding CS9 safety control are just two of several innovations on display from the leading provider of fluid and electrical connectors, robotics, and textiles at the industry event.

The features of the new models comply with the stringent requirements of the highest safety category and excel in every facet of automation, including high-volume manufacturing as well as collaborative scenarios. To ensure maximum safety, sensors monitor every movement of the robot, while the robot’s coordinates, speed and acceleration are recorded in real time. At Automate 2017, Stäubli Robotics has simulated a realistic Smart Factory to demonstrate the TX2 models’ collaborative skills and Industry 4.0 capabilities.

Stäubli’s new line offers one robot to cover all five stages of MRC. In stage 1, hard guarding separates the operator and robot. The manufacturing process is performed by the robot. In stage 2, laser (virtual) guarding separates the operator and robot. The manufacturing process is performed by the robot, and the operator enters the area periodically. In stage 3, laser (virtual) guarding separates the operator and robot. The robot and operator are involved in the manufacturing process. The operator enters the zone regularly during production. In stage 4, there is no separation between the robot and operator. The robot and operator are involved in the manufacturing process. The robot stops when it comes into contact with the operator. Finally, in stage 5, there is no separation between the robot and operator. The robot and operator are involved in the manufacturing process. The robot and the operator move safely in the same space simultaneously.

The company is also showing its new MPS 260 robotic tool changers, the first choice for applications requiring a high number of mating cycles, in addition to showcasing its CombiTac modular connection system and connection solutions for power and data. (GK)
