COMAU Dual arm robot

The Comau Smart Dual arm robot is a robotic system especially designed to perform assembling tasks. It is based on an innovative humanlike approach, having a sensor based platform and cognitive functions in order to support the assembling process. Its ease of use and the cooperation with humans in the different phases of each task, makes it ideal also for SME applications. Currently a lot of new devices and solution are under development:• Devices for fenceless approach (safety eyes by PILZ, stereocameras)• Vision system for parts recognition• Force torque sensor• Devices for easy programming (gesture and vocals recognition)• A Kinect v2• Festo and Schunk grippers• Integration of C5G open control and ORL libraries.C5G Open is suitable for industrial application that need additional sensors integrated in the system. For this purpose, used hardware parts have to be compliant with the industrials regulations.

Key features:
  • Multifunctional equipment on board (tool changer, grippers, nutrunner)
  • Human-robot interaction for intuitive process definition, based on manufacturing process models and sensor data
  • Fenceless approach using safety sensors
  • Smart Dual Arm with C5G open controller
  • Sensor-fusion data for complex assembling tasks
  • Cognitive features such as skill engines, easy interactive GUI, exception handling, human robot – interaction
Possible applications:
  • Sewing machine disassembling
  • Gear box assembling
  • Hydraulic pump assembling
  • Mechanical parts handling
  • Artificial Intelligence
