02-05-2024 | Delta | Industrial

Delta has announced a significant milestone in developing smart manufacturing solutions by launching six highly versatile models in the D-Bot series of collaborative industrial robots (Cobots). The portfolio features Cobots with payload capacities up to 30kg, reach spans up to 1800mm, compatibility with EtherCAT, Modbus and CODESYS, and the integration of 24-bit encoders to ensure optimal levels of precision, especially in pick and place, welding and palletising applications.

"In the field of mechanical engineering and automation technology, collaborative robotics represents one of the fastest-growing sectors. Market researchers from Interact Analysis predict an annual growth rate of around 20% by 2032. We aim to meet this demand with our D-Bot series Cobots, thereby assisting our customers in optimising their production processes, enhancing manufacturing efficiency, and mitigating labor shortages in many industries," explains Michael Mayer-Rosa, senior director, Industrial Automation Business Group at Delta Electronics EMEA Region. "Having succeeded for many years as a provider of robotics and automation technology components, we are exceptionally well-positioned to make significant achievements in this area as well."

The series includes six versatile models: D-Bot 6, D-Bot 8, D-Bot 10, D-Bot 16, D-Bot 20, and D-Bot 30, with payload capacities ranging from 6kg to 30kg. Featuring six axes for unmatched flexibility and precision, these models provide speeds up to 200 degrees per second and accuracy within ±0.02mm. Their reach spans 800mm to 1800mm, ideal for diverse operational demands. The integration of 24-bit encoders improves precision, ensuring consistent performance.

The series, designed with IP66 protection and advanced safety protocols, promises a secure and efficient workspace. Supporting interfaces like EtherCAT, Modbus, and CODESYS, these cobots are perfect for a range of tasks, including palletising, pick-and-place, welding, and more. With 'Plug and Play' setup and intuitive programming via a user-friendly interface, the series is accessible to operators of all skill levels, promoting human-robot collaboration in sectors such as automotive, logistics, and electronics.

The series is designed for rapid deployment, needing no special programming skills, making them operational in no time. Thanks to its 'Plug and Play' feature, setting up movements and command executions is effortlessly achieved. Furthermore, the system facilitates teaching through drag and drop, Python, ROS 1, or C++, ensuring a simple and flexible operation. The modern GUI, featuring immersive 3D visualisation, allows users of all levels to program quickly. Including an HMI panel in the package eradicates the necessity for additional devices or tools for control, streamlining the operation process even further.
