CHANGE

ER-FLEX works alone or in fleets, managed by our ER-ABILITY and ER-ORGANIZER software, which is integratable with your in-house lT management systems.

 

Our mobile cobot shares the workspace with human co-workers and aligns to the workpiece or object with millimeter precision. It reduces errors and wrong decisions in a lights-out production workflow.

 

Welcome to the era of intelligent, autonomous production support!

ESSENTIALS

SCALABLE SOLUTIONS

Our autonomous mobile cobots are deployable and scalable across sectors and industries

Production workflows typically consist of the same generic elements: Various machines, work stations, test equipment, storage and a need to transport items or boxes between these locations. The item handling procedures are applicable across sectors: Loading and unloading, sorting, precision handling, transportation, packaging. As the robots operate safely alongside humans and not behind safety fences the utilization of floor space is optimized and the robot acts as an assistant or co-worker. It is the robot which adapts to the environment - not the other way around.

WHY ER-FLEX?

FULL AUTONOMY AND LIGHTS OUT PRODUCTION

With smart planning and designing of the production layout the ER-FLEX can charge while operating and be efficient 24/7.  Depending on your production set up and batch sizes, you can let the robot work autonomously around the clock - or you can let the human employees take care of the small and differentiated batch sizes and let robots run the large batches during night shift. Possibilities are limitless and the robot is adjustable for new tasks.

EASY PROGRAMMING AND INTEGRATION

The programming interface makes scheduling and adjusting easy and accessible for local technicians. But behind this is a software architecture coordinating the mobile base and the arm and providing vision technology for precise calibration. 
ER-FLEX communicates with equipment and infrastructure (machines and electrical doors) through OPC/UA or REST. It also exposes a REST API for communication with your in-house IT management systems (ERP, WES, MES or WMS).

SAFETY

Working alongside humans requires maximum robot safety. The ER-FLEX is designed to avoid tipping even when handling heavy payloads. 

It is mounted with two E-stops and expandable safety system. 

The collaborative robot arm uses power and force limitation to ensure that speed is kept within given thresholds. 

Safety planes can be set up to restrict the cobot arm from moving into specific workspaces or heights.

Two SICK laser scanners provide 360-degree field of vision. It is used to map surroundings and detect both obstaces and people. ISO 13849 - certified, Performance Level D. 

Two front facing 3D cameras to detect obstacles in the path as well as 8 proximity sensors.

"To me the goal is less about automation being an efficiency step. It's about automation actually removing the chances of a wrong decision being made
