Lightweight delta robots

29 October 2019

Mitsubishi Electric has extended its MELFA articulated arm and SCARA robot offering to include a range of delta robots which combine its servo technology with the latest mechanicals from e-F@ctory Alliance partner Codian Robotics.

Codian Robotics has driven the use of materials such as carbon fibre, titanium and anodised aluminium, stainless steel and plastics to deliver solutions that offer optimum strength-to-weight ratios.

These lighter weight parts benefit speed while corrosion resistant options can meet the needs of more hygiene sensitive applications. The combination of Codian’s interchangeable structural components with Mitsubishi Electric’s servo motion packages provides a scalable solution that is easy and cost-effective to integrate with different formats of control platform.

Machine builders can choose to build a delta robot solution around either MELSEC PLCs or MELFA robot controllers. Solutions can be based around the Codian D2 or D4 ranges of robots. D2 robots are offered in either two- or three-axes, with maximum speeds of 250 picks-per-minute, payloads up to 100kg and a maximum working envelope of 1500x430mm. They are said to be well suited to high-speed pick-and-place applications.

To meet high performance and versatile pick-and-place needs Codian D4 robots are offered in either three- or four-axes, with maximum speeds of 200 picks-per-minute, payloads up to 35kg and a working envelope of up to 1600x350mm.
