New Cartesian Multi-Axes Robotic Systems from IntelLiDrives

Automation Platform For High Speed and High Precision Apllications

IntelLiDrives, Inc. released a new Cartesian Multi-Axes XYZ 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.
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.
MAIN FEATURES OF THE SYSTEM:
-XY travel from 300 x 300 mm to 3m x 3m
-Optional Z axis for XYZ system
-Precision belt drive
-Stepper, Servo, SMART motors
-Repeatable to 50 microns
-Load 10 to 30 Kg

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.
