PACK Expo - Shuttleworth to Showcase Innovative Collaborative Conveyor with Fenceless Technology at Pack Expo 2016

The Fanuc LR Mate 200iD is a 6-axis articulated robot featuring fenceless technology which safely monitors the position or speed of the robot and shuts down motor power when the defined safety parameters are exceeded.

HUNTINGTON, IN - Shuttleworth LLC, a premier manufacturer of material handling solutions will showcase its collaborative conveyor with the innovative fenceless technology featuring the FANUC LR Mate 200iD robot.


Fanuc LR Mate 200iD The Fanuc LR Mate 200iD is a 6-axis articulated robot featuring fenceless technology which safely monitors the position or speed of the robot and shuts down motor power when the defined safety parameters are exceeded.

The robot is integrated with Rockwell Automation's SafeZone Mini Safety Area scanner and Soft Robotics' end-of-arm tooling.

"Generally, collaborative robots work with human operator side-by-side but the difference between fenceless technology and collaborative is the speed," stated Michael Liu, Engineering Manager for Shuttleworth. "Our work cell demonstrates the robot running at 100% speed in normal operating zone. If human intervention is required, the robot will reduce speed and go to zero speed to allow correction or inspection needed. No access buttons or reset is required."

Shuttleworth's collaborative systems meets Safety Category 3 PLd and the requirements of ANSI/RIA/ISO/EN 10218-1 for safety performance.
