Comau has introduced a high-speed, 6-axis articulated robot that features a payload of 3 kg and a reach of 630 mm. The third robot within the Racer family, the Racer3 is the company’s response to the market demand for fast, cost-effective robotic automation within small- to medium-sized companies and emerging countries. With a streamlined design and brushed metal exterior, the robot unites speed with absolute precision and repeatability.
Built from high-strength aluminum, the Racer2 weighs 30 kg and can be easily mounted on benches, walls, ceilings or on inclined supports. Preliminary prototype tests indicate that it will be the fastest in its class. Field-proven technology and enhanced dexterity allow for a focus on safety, design and product aesthetics. Features include: compact design, aluminum construction, exceptional stability and user-friendly control interface.
Racer3 can adapt to any environment, meaning that SMEs in virtually any industry can easily automate, with extreme accuracy, precision and intelligence, even the most delicate manufacturing processes. It was created for general industry sectors, including food and beverage, electronics, plastics and metalworking. Rigid construction ensures higher precision and repeatability, whereas the hollow body construction optimizes the fluid transition of cables. Racer3 can be easily transported, guaranteeing maximum deployability.
