MELFA Smart Plus features
MELFA Smart Plus is an option that brings next-generation intelligence to MELFA FR series robots.Inserting a MELFA Smart Plus card into a robot controller enables a multitude of intelligent functions.
Predictive maintenance function
Failing drive parts are detected before abnormalities in robot behavior become apparent.
Downtime of production equipment is reduced.
Preventive maintenance function
Tracking the robot's operating status helps manage the condition of the robot.
Maintenance is now even more efficient.
(Maintenance simulation, Wear calculation function)
Enhancement function for force sense control
Parameters for the optimum operation pattern are found using repeat learning in a short amount of time.
Set-up and tact times are reduced.
MELFA-3D Vision enhancement function
Reduced startup time thanks to a utomatic parameter adjustments which utilize our proprietary AI technology "Maisart".
2D vision sensor enhancement function
Robot systems can be set up easily using the vision sensor without specialist knowledge.
Calibration assistance function
Easy set-up of 2D v ision sensors and improved job precision.
(Automatic calibration, Work coordinate calibration, Relative position calibration.)
Coordinated control of additional axis
Using a robot with an RTU enables manufacturing and assembly at user specified speeds.
(RTU : Robot Transport Units)
Robot mechanism thermal compensation function
Compensates for thermal expansion of the robot arm to increase position accuracy.
