Modular robot cell
23 September 2014
Swiss specialist in robot-aided handling systems, Robotronic AG has developed a modular robot cell in house, termed Modular Robot Technology or MRT for short, which uses only Mitsubishi Electric robots.
Robotronic has developed a handling module for supplying ready-to-use syringes to the final packing facility of an international pharmaceutical company in Germany.
Incorporated into the custom solution are two MELFA robots of type RV-4FLM-Q1-S15, the related CPUs Q172DRCPU and a PLC CPU, type Q03UDECPU.
The rotary turret is driven by a Mitsubishi Electric MR-J4 servo motor with motion CPU Q172DCPU. All CPUs form part of the iQ Platform, a multi-CPU platform from Mitsubishi Electric. The special feature of this solution is that the robots are not only suspended overhead but also work in pairs in the minimum of space.
