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:

Servo2Go - CANopen Input Sinusoidal Brushless Servo Amplifiers establish a new benchmark in versatility

CANopen digital servo drives are designed to drive brushed and brushless servomotors in torque, velocity, or position mode and employs Space Vector Modulation (SVM), which results in higher bus voltage utilization and reduced heat dissipation compared to traditional PWM drives.
