Multi-Axes Cartesian Robotic Platform for Life Sciences Automation

IntelLiDrives, Inc. releases new multi-axes platform for laboratory automation applications in pharmaceutical and life science industries.

Philadelphia, PA January 28, 2013


IntelLiDrives, Inc. has released a new Cartesian Multi-Axes Robotic System designed as a platform for many laboratory automation applications including micro-plate dispensing, pipetting, liquid handling, clean room packaging and many other robotic applications in pharmaceutical and life science industries.

Standard configurations include left or right handed XY, XYZ, and XZ systems. Stages can be side or base mounted with elevation raisers and base platform with shock absorbing footers. Installation of the optional rotary table is available.

The integrated cable management system includes connectors for easy disconnect of customer cables, air lines and fluidic valves.

All stages have environmental protection, options of stepper or brushless servo motors with encoders, integral limits and multiple ball-screw leads providing a wide range of speeds and resolutions.

This robotic system covers travel area 800 mm x 600 mm with a vertical axis travel up to 200 mm. Optional rotary table can be installed for 4-axes capability.

Repeatable to 5 microns, system is capable of 600 mm/sec velocity to provide high-throughput.

Robotic platform is available in T-style arm or H-style gantry configuration with payload capacity of 50 Kg.

Turn-key solution is available with pre-cabled multi-axes drives and motion controllers.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
