In recent years, interest in industrial robots has been further increasing not only in large companies but also small and medium-sized companies as a solution for increasing labor shortages and expectation for increases in productivity. On the other hand, even if they consider introduction of industrial robots, there are more than a few cases where companies completely refrain from introducing them because of lack of profitability, space, lack of human resources who can operate them, lack of information, etc. Therefore, in the MECT concept zone, the usage of industrial robots optimal for small and medium-sized companies and advanced systems will be introduced on the spot, and a closer look will be taken at the possibility of new production sites realized with robots.
Cooperation: TRI ENGINEERING / IWATA TOOL / YASKAWA ELECTRIC
A cutting system developed by TRI ENGINEERING using the Japanese high-rigidity robot “MOTOMANGG250”a system integrator (SIer) in Aichi Prefecture, by YASKAWA Electric will be shown for the first time in the world. In the venue, it will be combined with tools developed for robots to demonstrate cutting of multiple materials. New usages with a small robot MOTO-mini set on the top of the robot will be also proposed. A closer look will be taken at the superiority of cutting by robots and future possibility.

Cooperation: DENSO WAVE
The collaborative robot (cobot) “COBOTTA” made by DENSO WAVE with an installation area of approx. 200㎠ and a weight of approx. only 4 kg. It automates work requiring accuracy on production sites. In the venue, it will be combined with a non-contact dispenser to demonstrate application of sealing materials according to various work shapes. In addition, several concrete examples utilizing COBOTTA for production sites such as screw tightening work with a small torque driver and labeling unveiled in the exhibition, and assembly of precision parts and FPCs that have been difficult to robotize will be introduced.

There is much “heavy muscular work” that requires muscle strength on work sites. As one of the solutions to reduce the load of workers, “CR-35iA”, which has been developed by FANUC with the maximum mass capacity of 35 kg among cobots, will be utilized in the venue to demonstrate the assembly process of a robot arm with a weight of 20 kg. The optimal usage and charms of a large safe cobot will be introduced.

In recent years, human-type two-arm robots on one base, which are convenient to cover work conducted by people, have been more widely utilized. In the venue, there will be a corner where you can experience assembly work of parts of a coater with a collaborative two-arm robot “YuMi” made by ABB that is optimal for delicate precision work conducted over a long period of time and realizes advanced automation. The charms and usage of a two-arm robot that allows real collaborative work with people will be presented.
(An assembly experience will be provided as needed)
