With the One System Solution, OnRobot disrupted the end-of-arm-tooling industry with a unified interface, enabling OnRobot tools to work with a full range of collaborative and light industrial robots. OnRobot’s mission to make robotic applications faster and easier to implement resonated with the engineering industry professionals on the LEAP Awards’ judging panel as they unveiled the winners last November 5, 2019. The program recognizes the best components and services across the mechanical and electrical engineering industry and is supported by Design World, Fluid Power World and EE World publications.
Enrico Krog Iversen, CEO of OnRobot, said the prestigious Gold award is a recognition from an industry ready to embrace solutions that break down automation barriers. “With the One System Solution, we just launched a single robotic system that speeds deployment, making it makes it easy, fast and cost-effective for manufacturers to build collaborative applications,” he said.
The One System Solution allows OnRobot end-of-arm tools to work with leading collaborative and light industrial robot brands including Universal Robots, KUKA, FANUC, Doosan, Techman, Yaskawa, Mitsubishi, Kawasaki, Hanwha and Nachi with more robot brands coming soon. All OnRobot products now have a unified mechanical and communications interface based on the OnRobot Quick Changer, which is now an integrated part of all OnRobot products. An additional Dual Quick Changer incorporates these same new capabilities while allowing the use of two tools in one cycle, mixing and matching to suit application needs and maximizing robot utilization. In doing this, manual labour is freed up from many of the ‘dull, dirty and dangerous’ tasks, allowing workers to put their skills to better use with more value-added tasks.
OnRobot will be recognized at a ceremony in Santa Clara, California, in conjunction with the Healthcare Robotics Engineering Forum and DeviceTalks West events, on December 9.
