Human Robot Collaboration

Human, robot!

Human-robot collaboration opens up new possibilities for efficient, flexible and optimized production. Conflicting market requirements have to be taken into account such as increased depth of customization amid shortening product lifecycles. Cooperation and collaboration between humans and robots can create far-reaching potential under these circumstances. Both resources are making optimal use of their unique possibilities, creating new jobs for the future as a result. Zimmer grippers form the link between the workpiece and the robot here.

Zimmer grippers meet the requirements of protection principles in accordance with ISO/TS 15066, including patented and BG-certified safety gripper jaws. The mechanical self-locking mechanism of the safety gripper fingers ensures safety even in the event of an emergency stop or loss of power. Integrated state monitoring thanks to a wrap-around LED display enables straightforward state monitoring. Process and service data can be exchanged bidirectionally between the gripper and higher-level control system; optional connections to robot-specific human-machine interfaces (HMI) round out the range of products.
