Horizontal axis for collaborative robots (cobots)
Cobots are widely used to automate loading and unloading operations in machines or CNC centers or for welding applications. With greater distances between machines or working parts, a single cobot cannot handle multiple centers and operations due to its limited reach.
SLIDEKIT offers a plug-and-play system to add a horizontal axis, extending the operating range of a cobot., with fast and precise positioning, up to 1.8 m stroke. SLIDEKIT is fully compatible with the entire Universal Robot cobot range and can be controlled via integrated software interface directly on UR teach pendant.
Moreover, SLIDEKIT is also available with a general purpose variant, using simple digital I/Os to control the motion, making it compatible with other cobots brands.
Cobots combined with SLIDEKIT linear module provide a cost-effective solution to upgrade an existing assembly shop, moving from a manual handled to a fully automatized line.
The 2.0 release of the SLIDEKIT delivers several improvements compared to the former version, like higher system reactivity and stability, lower noise in operation and optimized design for limit switches and re-lubrication points
