Hanwha Precision Machinery (Franklin, WI) updates three Hanwha collaborative robot (HCR) models to HCR Advanced. Along with faster speeds, the HCR-3A, HCR-5A, and HCR-12A offer customizable solutions packages that combine the company’s artificial intelligence and mobility capabilities. The company is integrating its robotics technology with existing logistics automation systems, secondary batteries, and display-related facilities to satisfy the diverse needs of customers worldwide.
Advanced Solutions include:
- Advanced EtherCAT port for easy plug-and-play and two I/O ports with eight pins for direct integration with dual grippers. Key functional accessories, such as force torque sensors and grippers, can be attached without adding cables.
- Robot AI 3D Vision (RAIV) maximizes efficiency through 3D cameras and deep learning technologies.
- Robot Visual Safety (RVS) function ensures safety by automatically gaging and adjusting the cobot’s path in relation to its human coworker.
- HCR Advanced Mobility Solutions combine an autonomous laser-guided vehicle (LGV) with an autonomous mobile robot (AMR) to boost productivity by overcoming the cobot’s weight limits. These include:
- Robot monitoring service (RMS), which uses a Hanwha Techwin camera to monitor the cobot’s work environment and sound alarms in case of danger.
- Robot positioning compensation (RPC), which makes the cobots easier to use and more accurate.
The cobots lift 6.6 pounds (3kg), 11 pounds (5kg) and 26 pounds (12kg), respectively.
