“I am the new one”
The LBR iisy is basically the ‘little brother’ of the LBR iiwa for the low payload range. It is aimed at a target group which knows its production sequences well, but has not necessarily learned to program robots. Featuring various operator levels, the system adapts to the corresponding level of user knowledge – from Java programming to simple teaching of the cobot by means of manual guidance.
“The socalled Commander, the operator panel on the flange at the front, comes as standard with the LBR iisy, so that we always have a robot that is easy to operate straight out of the box,” explains Volker Schmirgel, Lead Product Owner LBR iisy.
Complements its big brother
While the LBR iiwa can perform more complex tasks covering a payload range up to 14 kg, the LBR iisy is geared towards simple handling or assembly tasks with loads of up to 3 kg. The two robots thus ideally complement one another. As with the LBR iiwa, the LBR iisy supports all major industry-standard functions, such as OPC UA, field bus protocols, digital and analog I/Os, safety, and much more.
Compact and quickly deployable
Furthermore, with a reach of 600 mm, it enables very space-saving operation and thus optimal utilization of small workspaces. That is something that is particularly in demand in the Asian electronics industry. Another plus point: the robot can be commissioned in less than 30 minutes and reprogrammed for new tasks quickly and easily. Even in the event of unplanned interruptions, it remembers every motion or activity executed and can resume working immediately without the need to be retaught.
Do you already have a Cobot? The article A cobot for me deals with sensitive robot assistants that offers support in everyday life. And we do badly need support in some areas.
