High-Performance Automation Solutions

Comau is expanding its product portfolio with the N-220-2.7 (N-220), a 220 kg payload robot featuring a modular set-up, direct kinematics, absolute calibration and enhanced algorithms.

With its wide working area and Performance Level D cartesian safety features, the high payload (220 kg) robot is suited for a range of industries including automotive, fulfillment and logistics and others. It has a hollow forearm and an integrated application dressing. The N-220 robot uses direct kinematics, absolute calibration and evolved motion algorithms for enhanced repeatability and precision. The robot comes fitted with integrated forklift adapters and optional high-torque washers for automatic anchoring base fixing, easier relocation and faster installation.

"The first of a new generation of 6-axis articulated robots, N-220 addresses the specific market need for cost-effective and easy to integrate robotics that also deliver high-speed industrial performance," said a company spokesperson. "The holistic design and modular architecture of the N-220 also make it easier to install, use and maintain. Manufactured at the Comau headquarters in Italy using a state-of-the-art robotic assembly line, it reliably automates assembly, spot welding, packaging and material handling operations, in addition to continuous process applications such as 3D printing and gluing."

Comau's e-Motion software algorithm improves cycle time, motion quality and path control. Due to the use of a nitrogen balancing system on axis 2 and larger stroke-ends on axis 3, the N-220 offers increased agility and a wide backward working area that is suited for bending and handling applications. Because the N-220 uses only two motor sizes and a single oil type, replacing a faulty motor is easy. An additional benefit of the simplified, modular architecture is easier overall maintenance and improved Mean Time Between Failure (MTBF) due to a 50% reduction of robot componentry.

Because integration speed has a direct impact on production potential, the N-220 implements Nodal speech-based coding language for open, easy programming. The easy dressing solution is made of two separate, flexible harnesses (robot and application power supply), which facilitates an easy and fast upgrade or replacement. Similarly, the direct assembly between the motor and gearbox simplifies mechanical transmissions and minimizes power loss and backlash, thus increasing efficiency and reducing consumption.
