6-axis collaborative robots handle loads to 33 lbs.
Stäubli o;ers the TX2 line of collaborative robots. The 6-axis machines are
suitable for high-volume manufacturing, Industry 4.0 applications, and
human-robot collaboration, with the
ability to produce a batch of one.
Six models are available to handle
loads from 4 to 33 lbs. with a reach from 20 to 57 in. They fea-
ture a separate safe digital encoder for each axis and an in-
tegrated safety board. All safety features comply with the re-
quirements of SIL3/PLe.
Every movement of the robots is monitored by sensors. In
addition, all the coordinates, as well as speed and acceleration, are recorded in real time. The robots’ enclosed structure
is certified to protection class IP65 and IP67, which means
they are waterproof.

Steel band cutter helps
reduce risk of operator injury
a steel band
top of the
manufacturer’s hoppers and rotator
boxes. The machine breaks down long
lengths of steel banding, which because
of its size and strength can be hazard-
ous to remove or cut manually, says the
company. The resulting small pieces
then fall into the hopper for transfer.
The steel band cutter helps reduce
the risk of operator injury and speeds
up the cutting process.
