Shuttleworth Collaborative Conveyor
Shuttleworth Collaborative Conveyor

The Shuttleworth collaborative conveyor features a Fanuc LR Mate 200iD 6-axis articulated robot that includes fenceless technology; the technology monitors the position or speed of the robot and shuts down motor power when the defined safety parameters are exceeded. The robot is integrated with a Rockwell Automation SafeZone Mini Safety Area scanner and Soft Robotics end-of-arm tooling. If human intervention is required, the robot will go to zero speed to allow any necessary correction or inspection; no access buttons or reset is required. The conveyor meets Safety Category 3 PLd and ANSI/RIA/ISO/EN 10218-1 requirements for safety performance.
