“There is a demand for workcell systems that speak to individual product and setting needs,” said RobotWorx President Jarrod Bichon. “Cookie-cutter robot systems don’t work for every situation.”
RobotWorx' custom robotic workcells include all the standard components: industrial robots, controls, positioners, and safety features. However, each component can be tailored to fit unique criteria.
A prepared statement from the company noted that the RobotWorx’ integration team can design workcells with extremely compact footprints or configure systems that work with specific conveyor arrangements.
Positioners, responsible for keeping or bringing products within a robot’s work envelope, range from static or rotating worktables to headstock and tailstocks. Customized robotic workcells can be outfitted with the customer’s choice of new or reconditioned robots, peripherals, and safety features. Reconditioned robot arms and other workcell parts can effectively reduce the overall cost of a system, the statement noted.
As a Motoman Solution Provider, FANUC Authorized System Integrator, and KUKA Robotics System Partner, RobotWorx carries standard workcells such as the Motoman ArcWorld systems. In addition, RobotWorx has designed its own line of turnkey robotic workcells. These RobotWorx systems currently include the RW900, RW1000, RW1050, RW1050S, RW1450 and RW2450. While each of these systems accommodate a certain degree of customization, RobotWorx’ custom workcell option makes it clear this robotic integration company invites requests for less conventional systems.
