Certified multi-axis cobot system
July 18, 2022 | By Monica Ferguson
Festo UR+ certified multi-axis solution for universal robotics cobots adds up to four axis of motion beyond the UR cobot six axes.
The multi-axis system requires no programming during the set up and no additional PLC is required. Multi-axis are configured through the UR HMI. End users set position, speed, and acceleration on the HMI or using the URCap toolbar, move the axis in manual mode to configure motion.
The multi-axis system features the Festo Motion Control Package (FMCP) for UR, which is a complete motion control panel for up to four axis motion. The FMCP is fully integrated with the UR cobot control panel and HMI and features a UR safety I/O and communications interface.
The FMCP can control turning tables, automatic storage systems, conveyors, and transfer tables, under the UR umbrella. The FMCP has extra space within the panel for future expansion and brackets for wall mounting.
