Force and Pressure Measuring System for Collaborative Robotic Applications
In any human-robot collaboration (HRC) without separating protective equipment, collisions between humans and robots cannot be completely ruled out. The permissible limit values for force and pressure in accordance with ISO/TS 15066, the world’s first specifications of safety requirements for collaborative robot applications, must be observed as they ensure the safe operation of HRC work areas. In regards to occupational safety different requirements are applicable for workspaces of collaborative robots. The force and pressure measurement system CoboSafe meets all the requirements that are necessary to verify the adherence of limit values and is tailored to each and every application area. Here the combination of force- and pressure measurement is key.
Learn about ISO/TS 15066
ISO/TS 15066 provides guidelines for the design and implementation of a collaborative workspace that controls risk. It provides risk assessments for collaborative robot applications with hard data and formulae to work with. In this whitepaper DGUV perfectly translates technical terms into a clear, understandable language.
Who Needs to Read ISO/TS 15066?
ISO/TS 15066 is primarily aimed at robot suppliers, integrators, tooling manufacturers, production managers and application engineers.
