Collaborative Robots

Collaborative robots (cobots) are key to automating mundane tasks while increasing productivity and freeing people up to perform more meaningful work. PreciseFlex™ cobots can be deployed in applications where space is limited, and people share the workspace. We have hundreds of thousands of robots installed in demanding applications like semiconductor and lab automation. We took what we learned in these areas and brought our cobots to general industry.

PreciseFlex cobots are inherently safe, and the fastest available

Our cobots are not traditional industrial robots that have been slowed to meet collaborative safety standards. They have been designed to be inherently safe. This is accomplished by low gear ratios, low reflected inertialow moving masses, and advanced motion control. The result is a cobot that people can work side-by-side without the need to slow it down. (Of course, a risk assessment should always be completed before putting any robot into production.)

Our cobots are easy to install and deploy

With embedded controller and connectivity for external equipment, our robots easy to set up. Configuration and programming are done from GuidanceMotion, our easy-to-use web interface, or from GPL, our advanced programming language. The robot can also be controlled by sending commands via our TCP interface, which is popular in Lab Automation.

Since our robot controller is embedded in the robot, there’s no bulky external controller to mount, and no robot cables to stumble over.

Learn how our PreciseFlex collaborative robot is meeting the needs of industrial manufacturers.

With a focus on built-in safety and ease of use, PreciseFlex™ robots can be deployed and operated by users in environments where space is limited and access to the work cell must be shared.

Types of collaborative robots

Our 4-axis SCARA, Cartesian, and 6-axis robots provide a wide range of configurations, reach and payload. 

What makes a robot collaborative?

Our collaborative robots are not traditional industrial robots that have been modified for safety – they have been designed as inherently safe from the beginning. Speed and safety work hand in hand through low gear ratios, extremely low friction back drivable axes and moving masses, and advanced motion control technology. The result is an environment in which employees can work side-by-side with the robots without needing to slow down.

How robots are determined as truly safe

PreciseFlex™ collaborative robots meet the ISO/TS 15066 Standard on Collaborative Robots, which defines the robot’s maximum safe contact forces if it collides with a person in free space. Our collaborative robots are the first and only robots that have been verified to limit forces within these guidelines.
