Integrated camera system

The Techman cobot features an embedded camera system that has been seamlessly integrated into the hardware and software. This makes it faster and cheaper to implement than retrofitted camera systems for robots. Cobots with cameras can detect flawed objects, read barcodes/QR codes/2D data matrix codes, and much more.

Intuitive user interface

… for easy programming without prior training. TMflow™ is responsible for the functions and programming of Techman cobots. It is an innovative, intuitive processing software that is programmed using simple drag & drop movements. With TMflow™ you can create your own cobot projects without any linear programming.

TM calibration board

Simply place the TM calibration board underneath the camera, and a click of the mouse is all it takes to start the rest of the calibration process – for example calibration to the light conditions or the distance from the component.

TM landmark tool

Unique: You can attach a landmark or sticker with defined graphics to the work area, and the camera detection function moves the Techman cobot to the required position. The camera automatically detects the distances to adjacent objects. This negates the traditional limitation that a robot can’t be moved.

Safety & certification

Safe human-machine collaboration

In the past, industrial robots were used in zones strictly separated from employees to prevent injuries from fast-moving parts. Today, cobots allow genuine collaboration. Our TM robot series is designed for direct human-machine collaboration.

Inevitably, close or direct contact between collaborative robots and workers opens up scope for collisions. Intelligent cobots can deal with this. Their advantage over conventional industrial robots is that they require less personnel to maintain strict workplace requirements.

Safety & certification

Here’s how Techman cobots protect your employees:

With our cobot solutions, you are legally on the safe side. That’s because all our cobots comply with statutory safety requirements ISO 10218-1:2011 and ISO/TS 15066:2016 for the use of collaborative robots. Plus, you can add additional safety information to all Techman cobots – making them even safer.
For example, the user interface of TMflow can indicate body parts that could potentially be injured by the robot. You can also implement speed limits for the robot arm when it is used in a collaborative work area.
If there is an imminent danger of collision, our cobots can initiate an emergency stop. Upon contact with a person or object, the system stops immediately. This prevents damage and injury before they happen.

FAQ

What's the difference between a cobot and an industrial robot?

A cobot or collaborative robot is a robot designed to be so safe that it can work with and around people – without any separating barriers. Barriers are mandatory for conventional industrial robots, so these machines often work behind bars or in segregated areas. This makes cobots a little more expensive. However, they take up less space and can more easily be reprogrammed to new tasks.

How is safety ensured with collaborative robots?

Cobots work more slowly and feature torque sensors that trigger immediate braking in case of a collision with a human or an object. This makes them very safe. Plus, you can add additional safety information to all Techman cobots – making them even safer. You can set the TMflow user interface to warn about body parts potentially at risk of injury by the cobot. And you can set speed limits for the robot arm if it is used in a collaborative work area.

Is the Techman cobot suitable for my tasks?

It definitely is suitable for any task that falls within the reach and load-capacity parameters of one of our Techman cobot solutions. We’d be happy to advise you on the right cobot for you – simply contact us!

Is The Techman cobot easy to use?

Yes – because it was designed so that just about any employee can easily program it, reprogram it, move it, and reuse it. The built-in camera system and the user-friendly TMflow™ application software also make operation particularly easy. With it, the cobot can be programmed via simple drag-and-drop mouse movement – without any line programming at all.

What accessories are available for the Techman cobot and what effectors can be installed?

You can connect effectors from a supplier of your choice to your Techman cobot. This applies whether they are plug-and-play models or not. If not, the effectors need to be programmed externally. You can find plug-and-play effectors and replacement systems here!

Do I need a camera for my application?

That depends. A camera is necessary for some applications, for example packaging, inspection, and logistics. That’s because the image processing system enables pattern and object recognition and positioning as well as color classification and barcode identification. All Techman cobots come with a camera system already installed. The camera has been seamlessly integrated into the hardware and software, so you avoid the expense and work of connecting up a separate camera system. With the autofocus feature, the camera system locates objects in a variable field of view and at a variable distance between the camera and the object.

Does ADT provide support with commissioning?

Yes. You can ask us to develop complete robot cells for you – ready programmed, pre-cabled, and with CE certification. This means you can put our cobots to work immediately and safely! We can also assemble complete production lines consisting of several robot cells in sequence.
