For companies taking their first steps into automation, Wyzo offers a high-speed pick-and-place sidebot. Combat and agile, Wyzo safely works side-by-side with humans without protective barriers or performance compromises. This new approach to collaborative production is ideal for lightweight applications in food and beverage, consumer goods and more. It also gives operators an assistant to handle day-to-day tasks on the production floor. Building on 20 years of experience in high-speed Delta robots, Wyzo is a fast, compact and flexible sidebot, the company says. Because of the high-tech robotic arm and built-in or external vision systems, the sidebot finds and picks products at 80 cycles a minute, with a payload of half a kilogram, the company says. Through its advanced sensor technology, Wyzo constantly monitors its surroundings for the presence of human activity, allowing it to maximize performance when on its own while slowing down when an operator is nearby. To meet a wide variety of production needs, Wyzo is designed to fit anywhere on the production floor. At less than 0.5 m2 and just 1.80 meters in height, the sidebot fits through standard doors and elevators, offering unprecedented flexibility with a small footprint. It easily can be moved from one workstation to another, eliminating bottlenecks and enabling a fast return-on-investment. The sidebot also is compatible with regular grippers on the market with changeover speeds of less than nine seconds. Additionally, it contains an easy to operate human machine interface (HMI) that requires neither script nor programming, the company says.
