Comau introduces Rebel-S, its own 4-axis SCARA robot

13 July 2016

Comau introduces Rebel-S, its own 4-axis SCARA robot, in five different models with a payload of 6kg and three different reaches.

All models are controlled by the R1C 19" rack-mounted controller, which can be integrated into a single cabinet to control an entire line. The robots are also available in the openROBOTICS version, where the robot is directly integrated into the existing machine/line automation controlled by B&R technologies.

The name of these new robots reflects the differences embodied by the SCARA compared with the other robots in Comau’s portfolio. They can be considered “rebels” in the sense that they are not being articulated, they offer a variety of mounting positions, and they utilise spacers - a simple, yet very innovative solution able to extend the robot's reach. 

Rebel-S is available with reaches of 450, 600 and 750mm. All three versions can be floor or wall mounted, while the versions with 600 and 750mm reach can also be configured for ceiling mounting. This flexibility in mounting position is facilitated by the use of dual cabling options (either vertical or horizontal).

The difference in reach is provided by spacers, modules which enable the robot to extend its radius of action. With an extension kit composed of spacers and cables, the five models are effectively interchangeable. 

This modularity opens the opportunity to a last second robot configuration and this means considerable savings when the customer purchases the members of SCARA’s family.

Alongside its robots, Comau will offer a range of add-ons, including conveyor tracking and a plug & play vision system, as well as a series of service packages as part of its after sales strategy.
