By “service robotics”, Pilz appears to mean solutions which include small, collaborative robots the company appears to have built by itself (see main picture).
The new range of solutions includes:
- a “manipulator module” – by which Pilz seems to mean the robotic arm – with 6 axes and a load of 6 kg;
- the control module with drive and control technology; and
- the operator module including an operator and visualisation software developed by Pilz.
The company says its solutions go “beyond the classic service robotics applications in a non-industrial environment”.
The use of Pilz robotics modules with modular, semi-automated small robot cells in the industrial environment, the new modules are especially suitable for pick-and-place applications and applications with automatic guided vehicles, says the company.
