TWO NEW ROBOTS FOR COMAU: RACER5-0.63 AND RACER5-0.80

The small robot family is growing based on the existing Racer3 technological platform

Munich, 21 June 2016 - Comau presents the extension of its small robot family

for quick applications in restricted spaces, including handling, assembly and
pick&place, by introducing two new robots - Racer5-0.63 and Racer5-0.80. Both
are controlled by the R1C 19" rack-mounted controller, which can be integrated
into a single cabinet to control an entire line. The robots are also available in the
openROBOTICS version where the robot is directly integrated into the existing
machine/line automation controlled by B&R technologies.
In doing so, Comau keeps the promise made last June with the launch of the
Racer3, when it announced a competitive presence in the small machine sector
within a year.
Both robots are built on the Racer3 technological platform, thus offering solutions
which share the same components and parts, in a strategy aimed at expanding
the integrated range of robots.
In detail, the two new robots expand the capacity of Racer3 in terms of payload
and reach. Racer5-0.63 features a reach of 630mm and payload of 5kg. Racer5-
0.80 is also rated for a payload of 5kg, but has an extended reach of 809mm. All
the other features of Racer3 remain the same, including the sectors and
applications for which they are suited: handling, assembly and pick&place.
