Stäubli Robotics Announces the Robot Industry's most comprehensive Load Balancing Software Package

Perfect solution to sorting, and pattern making, with variable infeed and the requirement for a stable out flow for post processes

Stäubli introduces the partnership with a leader in Load Sharing Software to release the Robot Industry's most comprehensive Load Balancing Software Package. This package is available on all Stäubli Robots but is Stäubli Robotics Announces the Robot Industry's most comprehensive Load Balancing Software Packageparticularly well suited to the TP80 Fast Picker line. This is the perfect solution to sorting, and pattern making, with variable infeed and the requirement for a stable out flow for post processes.


Features Include:

*Parallel Flow, Counter Flow, and Mono Flow conditions are easily handled

*100% matching for all pick and place locations

*Full traceability of each part along the entire process

*Ensures 100% full output regardless of infeed flow variation by reacting to each pick and place incidence intelligently- Not a Gatekeeper.

*Performs Centralized Line Control without a PLC

*Controls infeed speed automatically

*Controls Out Flow speed automatically

*Controls all robot speeds

*Collision Avoidance via Robot Axis Controls

*No need to program specific conditions for individual robots on the line.

The first 60 - 70% of Load Balancing conditions are relatively easy with existing software options, but Stäubli has exceed expectations in offering this totally comprehensive solution.

ST Robotics Develops the Workspace Sentry for Collaborative Robotics

The ST Robotics Workspace Sentry robot and area safety system are based on a small module that sends an infrared beam across the workspace. If the user puts his hand (or any other object) in the workspace, the robot stops using programmable emergency deceleration. Each module has three beams at different angles and the distance a beam reaches is adjustable. Two or more modules can be daisy chained to watch a wider area. "A robot that is tuned to stop on impact may not be safe. Robots where the trip torque can be set at low thresholds are too slow for any practical industrial application. The best system is where the work area has proximity detectors so the robot stops before impact and that is the approach ST Robotics has taken," states President and CEO of ST Robotics David Sands.
