NEW ACIETA FASTLOAD STANDARD COLLABORATIVE ROBOT MACHINE TOOL CELL GETS AUTOMATION STARTED QUICKLY AND COST-EFFECTIVELY

Acieta has launched the new FastLOAD CR2000 standard machine tool cell. The new cells are designed with all components fully integrated for fast delivery and start-up as well as at a low cost.

Waukesha, Wis, [Apr. 8, 2019] ⎯ To give job shops and manufacturers a system that is easy to utilize to offer a high-quality FANUC collaborative robot, Acieta has launched the new FastLOAD CR2000 standard machine tool cell. The new cells are designed with all components fully integrated for fast delivery and start-up as well as at a low cost.

"Companies want to address their manufacturing problems quickly, and with our FastLOAD CR2000, we can deliver a high-quality system with an aggressive lead-time," said Mark Sumner, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Acieta. "Utilizing a FANUC collaborative robot in this system provides manufacturers a great way to drive increased productivity in a small footprint, a safe work environment, and at a high return on investment, so succeeding with robotics is easier and faster than ever before. It's changing the way people think about robotics."
To overcome capacity challenges, labor shortages and quality variability, the FastLOAD CR2000 collaborative machine tool cell can help companies maximize efficiency and profitability, increase profits, address labor shortages and improve operator safety.
For high efficiency, the FastLOAD CR2000 can tend two machines simultaneously so an operator can load and unload parts while the robot is working on the other machine. It features a FANUC CR-15iA collaborative six axis robot, an intuitive touchscreen interface with easy in-shop wifi programming, and gripper fingers that allow for parts ranging from 5/8" in. to 5 ¾" in. diameter.

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.
