Collaborative robots speed up!

22 March 2021

Comau has introduced its RACER-5-0.80 (Racer-5 COBOT) a collaborative robot designed to meet the demand for fast, cost-effective cobots that can be used in restricted spaces and in different application areas. 

Countering the belief that collaborative robots are slow, Racer-5 COBOT is a 6-axis articulated robot that can work at industrial speed up to 6m/sec. With a 5kg payload and 809mm reach, it ensures optimal industrial efficiency with the benefit of safe, barrier-free operations. It is able to instantly switch from a collaborative mode to full speed when operators are not around, letting its 0.03mm repeatability and advanced movement fluidity deliver unmatched production rates.

The cobot is said to enable systems integrators and end users to automate even the most sophisticated manufacturing processes without sacrificing speed, precision or collaborative intelligence. With safety features certified by TÜV Süd – an independent certification company – it can be used within any high-performance line without the need for protective barriers, which effectively reduces safety costs and floorspace requirements. 

Racer-5 COBOT also features integrated LED lighting to provide real-time confirmation of the workcell status. Finally, electrical and air connectors are located on the forearm to grant greater agility and minimise the risk of damage.
