New Delta robot solution

17 May 2016

The MELFA range of compact SCARA and articulated arm robots from Mitsubishi Electric has been extended with the introduction of new Delta style robots from Codian Robotics.

Employing precision servo motion technology and Mitsubishi Electric software the new range is said to be fast, precise and user friendly. It is suited to use for lightweight pick-and-place tasks. Each robot is able to work autonomously using servo control or be integrated seamlessly into a Mitsubishi Electric automation environment.

This solution has been developed as a result of the e-F@ctory Alliance partnership, an initiative of Mitsubishi Electric where companies work together to create best in class automation solutions. As members of the alliance, Codian Robotics and Mitsubishi Electric are providing a more extensive combination of robot technology and control options to machine builders and robot integrators within the group and to the market in general.

Manufacturing and packaging industries are incredibly competitive and this translates into demands for higher speeds and high reliability to combat extremely tight margins on machinery and production lines. When low weight items are being assembled, processed and packaged the construction of the production lines is often equally lightweight. When introducing a robot to this environment it is an advantage to be able to save weight in construction and also reduce moving mass in the manipulator.

Codian Robotics’ delta robot is constructed using materials such as carbon fibre, titanium, anodised aluminium, 316 stainless steel and plastics to ensure it is lightweight. In combination with advanced servo driven movement this makes it suitable for typical three-axis top-loading packaging applications and push-fit assembly.

A waterproof model is available for wash-down environments such as food & beverage, cosmetic and pharmaceutical applications.
