ELITE ROBOT was established in 2016 by technical experts that have developed and manufacture lightweight 6-axis collaborative robots (3kg, 6kg, and 12kg cobots). Elite cobots have gained a positive reputation among users in the Automotive, Electronics, Packaging Logistics, Metal Processing, Rubber & Plastics, chemicals, and other industries. COLLABORATIVE ROBOT TECHNOLOGY
The term “collaborative robot” (“Cobot”) refers to power and force limited robots that are equipped with safety-approved force sensing capabilities. Collaborative robots can sense unexpected force and stop their motion when an external force is applied. Elite Robots Inc has combined a cost-effective robot system with safe and user-friendly collaborative robot technologies to achieve operator safety while increasing manufacturing production.
- SAFETY-RATED MONITORED STOP: Safety-rated monitored stop will temporarily stop the robot allowing a human to enter the collaborative workspace. Detection using one or more sensors to detect human presence and perform other tasks without shutting off robot motor power. The robot can be stopped in any position allowing the operator to load, unload parts. Safety-Rated Monitored Stop improves cycle time by avoiding tedious restart procedures.
- HAND GUIDING: Hand guiding allows the robot to move under someone’s control. The robot is still powered, but the workers are protected since the movements of the robot are under control. Hand guiding mode simplifies programming and reduces setup time by allowing the operator to program the robot using a direct hand-guided teaching method.
- SPEED AND SEPARATION MONITORING: Speed and separation monitoring are used to adjust the robot's movements according to the location of the human. When someone enters the collaborative area, the robot will slow down its movements to the predetermined speed. If the worker moves closer, the robot will stop to avoid any collision.
- POWER AND FORCE LIMITING: Power and force limitation are the most widely applied aspects of collaborative robots. When contact occurs, the robot will limit its force not to harm the person; then, the robot can then be restarted from any point allowing it to continue production. The ability to limit motor power and force during an application eliminates the ability of the robot to harm a human co-worker. A risk assessment must be performed for any collaborative applications without additional safety guarding.
