Dual-Arm Collaborative Robots Increase Flexibility and Accuracy

James Anderton for Engineering.com:  Robotics are an ideal technology for fine assembly tasks, such as those in the electronics industry.

In the video above, we look at a new collaborative robot, or cobot, solution for assembly applications: the Kawasaki duAro.

“The duAro is an eight-axis collaborative robot,” said Max Falcone, senior manager of systems engineering at Kawasaki Robotics USA Inc. “We do full force, torque and speed monitoring through our Cubic S device, which is a Class Four safety rated device within the robot. The robot itself has a full fieldbus capability, so we support Ethernet IP, several slave modules, CC-Link and DeviceNet as well, so we can incorporate things like screw feeders and screw guns very easily.”  Full Article:
