Since January 2000 the Laboratory hosts an industrial robot Comau SMART S2, endowed with an "open control" C3G 900 by Tecnospazione SpA and a force/torque sensor ATI Gamma SI-130-10.

For a short general introduction to the robot characteristics you can download the manual file ManualeSmartS2.pdf.


Overall dimensions and working space

This SMART S2 is a 6 dof articulate robot conceived for small to middle loads and industrial applications as:

  • arc welding
  • palletizing/depalletizing
  • machine loading/downloading
  • part assembling with force control
  • part inspection
  • glue/sealing application
  • painting
Other caracteristics are:
  • large working envelope
  • max wrist load capacity equal to 78,45 N (8 kg)
  • brakes on all motors
  • electrical and pneumatic services available at the forearm
  • brushless motors
  • gear reductions on the first fiveaxes
  • absolute axis position, obtained with resolvers integrated into the motors and absolute transducer modules RPT (Resolver Position Tracker)
