Fruitcore Robotics has released a new industrial robotic arm as part of its Highly Optimised Robotic Systems Technology (HORST) range, which it says offers a payload of up to eight kilograms and a range of 1,018mm, according to the company.
The new solution is designed to support a number of applications, including machine assembly and pick and place operations.
The robot gear from Fruitcore Robotics for HORST1000 can also be optimised using a machine learning algorithm to improve and increase performance levels.
“The technological innovations of HORST1000 allow us to further increase the difference in performance compared to conventional cobots,” said Jens Riegger, CEO and co-founder of fruitcore robotics.
The company claims to have placed particular focus on the workspace of HORST1000, with the three-dimensional working area increasing by 40% compared to the HORST900, so that 50% larger trays can be processed.
What’s more, from the base, the bot can move around 230mm further forward than its predecessor. This higher acceleration values of the individual axes in the nominal load range also ensures shorter cycle times, according to Fruitcore.
Patrick Heimburger, managing director and co-founder of Fruitcore Robotics, said: “We are now enabling an even larger range of applications and are helping our customers to implement industrial processes such as machine assembly and pick and place even more easily and efficiently.”
The HORST1000 was developed to load and unload any machine tool, especially for lathes and milling machines. Its developers have said the robot can reach deep into the machines, with its high axis acceleration enabling shortened cycle times.
The new arm can now be pre-ordered, with deliveries expected from June this year.
