RARUK brings cobots and SCARA robots to MACH

180130_RARUKRARUK Automation is appearing at MACH for the first time and with a wider-than-ever choice of automation products to inspire visitors. A dedicated automation company that specialises in systems with a unique edge, RARUK Automation has substantially increased its product programme during the last year and will be introducing several new additions at the show.

These include Toshiba Machine industrial robots. As the recently appointed sole UK distributor of TM Robotics’ SCARA and Cartesian robots, RARUK Automation is now able to provide solutions using these caged systems as well as its 6-axis, collaborative Universal Robots (UR). This scope allows the optimum solution to be developed for any application.

At MACH one of the TM Robotics’ SCARA systems will be demonstrated with FlexiBowl, another new product from RARUK Automation for feeding a wide variety parts. Regardless of whether parts are smooth, sticky, tangled or burred FlexiBowl will feed the parts uniformly, effectively and, if required, continuously.

RARUK Automation is a preferred Universal Robots supplier in the UK and naturally these cobots will feature heavily on its stand. The UR systems give companies access to all the benefits of advanced robotic automation with none of the extra costs associated with traditional robot programming and set-up. They make robotic automation affordable for SMEs and small batch production runs.

Universal Robots are designed to operate alongside employees, assisting with work that may be too dangerous, strenuous or tedious for them to accomplish on their own. They create a safer, more efficient workplace without eliminating jobs that involve the fabrication of the product.

Three Universal Robots will be demonstrated on the RARUK Automation stand, performing a variety of applications and all complete with Robotiq grippers, vision system and force torque sensors. One, for example, will be shown on a ProFeeder unit, a new compact, mobile and modular robot cell that can be easily moved between production and processing machines to increase productivity. ProFeeder can also be systematically expanded to give manufacturers an affordable growth path to full automation.

Full information will also be available at MACH on the latest MiR customisable mobile robots for transport tasks. Only recently introduced to the RARUK Automation range, the MiR200 autonomously transports a load of up to 200kg and can be customized with top modules such as bins, racks, lifts, conveyors or even a Universal Robot.
