Robot claimed to be the fastest in its class

150203_Comau_1Comau claims its new Racer 999 articulated robot is the fastest in its class, and can reduce cycle times by up to 25% when compared to the previous generation robot, thanks to increased fluidity of movement.

Designed for a payload of 7kg, the robot has a cycle time of 0.702 seconds, and provides a reach of 999cm. Repeatability is claimed to be 0.05mm. Further, in five axis configuration for high speed pick and place operations, Comau says the robot can handle 10kg loads.

Highly compact, the Racer 999 is said to be both smaller and 30% more rigid than the Racer 7-1.4, which translates into lower energy consumption.

The Racer 999 can be mounted on walls, ceilings or inclined supports, as well as on the floor. Typical applications include assembly, handling, machine tools and packaging, particularly where space is limited.
