Stäubli Showcased Smart Factory, Sensitive Environment Robots at ATX West
Stäubli showcased a variety of industry-defining products, including its new TX2 line of collaborative robots, at the ATX West trade show (booth #4461) in Anaheim, Calif., February 6-8. Stäubli offers a complete range of dynamic robots for challenging industrial environments including life sciences, medical, pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, food, electronics, semiconductors, cleanrooms and laboratories.
Stäubli Robotics simulated a highly realistic Smart Factory with multiple TX2 models and interlinked cells proving their Industry 4.0 compatibility, as well as their collaborative skills. A sensitive environment display utilizing the TX90 HE robot, developed specifically for processes in wet environments, demonstrated food washing and waterjet cutting.
In addition to the Smart Factory and sensitive environment displays, Stäubli demonstrated medical assembly with Calvary Robotics’ FleX Cell utilizing the TX60L. Calvary Robotics’ FleX Cell Robotic Assembly Platform aims at a wide range of products, parts, assemblies and processes across numerous industries. CAID Automation (booth #4550) featured the FAST picker TP80, an extremely fast robot that is capable of sustaining 200 picks per minute.
“The incredible performance and versatility of our new TX2 line allows it to be incorporated in a wide variety of scenarios to improve efficiency, safety and the quality of manufactured goods,” says Roger Varin, CEO, Stäubli North America.
With the launch of the TX2 series and CS9 safety control, Stäubli has opened a new chapter in man-robot collaboration. The six-axis robots have a separate safe digital encoder for each axis and an integrated safety board. All safety features comply with the stringent requirements of the highest safety category, SIL3/PLe.
Stäubli offers the world’s widest range of robots in special versions and is the undisputed market leader in this segment. Additional products such as HE, Cleanroom, Super Cleanroom, ESD and Stericlean designate special versions, which deliver the same high level of performance that has come to be expected of the standard models.
