Aubo RoboticsUpdated 11/17/2017
This collaborative robot arm (AUBO-i5) was specially designed with important functions from the start, combining state of the art technology with user friendliness to make this collaborative robot (Co-bot). The open source architecture called open unit robot enables the robot operating system (ROS) to be supported though API for both industrial and academia use. AUBO robot uses the Canbus network to communicate between harmonic drives this offers un-parallel versatility to configure this robot from 3 to 7 DOF. This modular design also enables you to alter the link length between joints to fit custom applications. Low cost of ownership and high positional repeatability are some of the other criteria that makes up the outstanding features of this robot.
Aubo Robotics model AUBO-i5 | 5Kg payload collaborative robot (Co-bot). | 6 DoF | 922 mm Reach
AUBO-5 works closely within environment human without safety equipment, depending on risk assessment.
Features and Benefits:
- Collaborative Function:
- Guide to teach (inverse kinematics motion planning), this manual operation of the robot enables you to quickly and easily program the robot by demonstration without any programing skills.
- Works side by side with human operator safety fence, laser or sensors (after a risk assessment is preformed).
- Teach pendent user interface for programing (forward kinematics) enables online programing and simulation via a touch screen tablet.
- Lightweight, flexible, easy to re-purpose this robot weighs in under 24Kg
- Safety Functions:
- Designed in accordance with PLd and ISO 10218-1 (5.10.5 power and force limiting) safety requirements and compliant with most all specifications for collaborative robot operation.
- Power and force limiting design brings robot to a protective stop if limits are exceeded or a collision is detected. Speed and force can be adjusted to fit and optimize any application easily.
- Sensors imbedded in motor drives provide real-time feedback to prevent dangerous situations.
- Emergency stop buttons are positioned on teach pendent and control box with a braking distance less than 1mm.
- Open Source Architecture:
- CAN bus network used in this robot for multiple microcontrollers to communicate with each other.
- ROS (Robot Operating System) is supported though API.
- Hardware adopts CAN bus protocols with open I/O interface extensions.
- Easily integrate robot into existing production systems.
- Return on investment (ROI)
- Low cost of ownership, no programing skills needed, and ease of integration into a system all add up to a quick return on your investment.
- Short run, high mix environment job like Lab automation or machine tending are prime examples of industries needing fast redeployment.
- Floor space is a premium cost at most companies usually more than the equipment. A small foot print, light weight robot will be a huge benefit for any size companies cost of production.
- Repurpose, redeploy and or reinvent applications with the same robot, change the number of degrees of freedom, joints and tubes are modular making it easy to repair as well as reconfigure.
- Vison systems can be integrated into controller.
- Software system based on cloud platform management that realizes remote maintenance, fault diagnosis and online upgrading of firmware.
- This research robot platform is used widely around the world in corporate research labs and for academic robotics research.
- Modular design:
- Robot can be configured to have between four and seven degrees of freedom to meet user requirement.
- Joint length can be customized to longer or shorter links.
