Easy automation expertise

22 January 2015

R. A. Rodriguez, the transmission component and automation specialist company, is exhibiting again at Southern Manufacturing and will be focusing on its expertise in easy automation on stand Q37. Centre-stage will be the latest addition to the R. A. Rodriguez range of Universal Robots that introduces a number of features to confirm its suitability for human/robot collaborative working.

The latest Universal Robot six-jointed arms retain the ease-of-use and quick return on investment benefits of previous generations and their visual appearance and payload of 5/10kg remains unchanged. Central to the new design, however, is the inclusion of a new patented safety system that enhances its use for tasks that require human interaction.

The inclusion of true absolute encoders in the new design allows faster start-up of the robot arm. Integration with other systems is easier too. Additional I/O ports are easy to configure either as digital signals or safety signals. The result is a supremely versatile product that can benefit a wide range of markets, from unloading CNC machines at a small subcontractor to performing an automatic gluing process for an automotive manufacturer,

R. A. Rodriguez will also be promoting the benefits of its new on-line gear shop at the show. The facility at www.rargears.com provides customers with an exceptional choice of high quality gears and associated products. A representative selection from the company’s thin section and turntable bearings, drives and linear motion ranges will complete the stand display.
