The World’s Only Collaborative Cartesian Robot
The PP100 is the world’s only collaborative Cartesian robot. Its novel mechanical design offers a price below most collaborative robots and lowers the overall costs of table top applications. This lightweight robot is available with 2-axes (XZ) or 3-axes (XYZ) and an optional theta/servo gripper. If your application only requires simple X or Y or Z motions and collaborative operation is important, the PP100 is the perfect solution.
SAFE MIXED MANUFACTURING ENVIRONMENT
Collaborative robots potentially permit the creation of a mixed manufacturing environment where people can enter and efficiently work around robots without the loss of throughput. However, other “collaborative” robots must move slowly or use a reduced speed collaborative mode, impacting production whenever users are near. The PP100’s unique combination of speed and safety allows its operation at full speed and delivers industrial throughput at safe ISO standard collaborative forces, so operators can move freely around the robot without concerns for their safety or loss of productivity.
With the PP100, you only purchase the axes of motion that you need. And, it can be carried by one person, mounted on a table and, by plugging in just an AC power cord and an Ethernet cable, is ready to operate, which greatly reduces integration time and cost. The controller, power supplies and harnessing are embedded within the robot’s structure, simplifying installations, reducing space, and allowing the PP100 to be mounted above existing work areas and equipment and “snapped” into place above conveyor belts. The collaborative Cartesian design allows for extremely small, cost saving workcells that have minimal impact on existing production. Unlike 6-axis articulated robots, there is no large dead space behind the robot and it can access the full rectangular XY region defined by the limits of travel of its axes.
The complex geometries of 6-axis collaborative robots make teaching positions difficult for operators, while the PP100’s simple Cartesian geometry is particularly easy for new users to teach, since any position and move combination is intuitive and possible. In addition many collaborative robots use a programming environment with limited features to simplify setup for new users. Precise Automation’s collaborative robots offer the flexibility of both an easy-to-use web based interface as well as an optional advanced programming environment as capable as any industrial robot. The easy-to-use Guidance Motion interface is accessible from any web enabled device and allows technicians or operators to quickly and easily setup and teach the PP100 to perform real work.
