Veo will present the FreeMove 3D backup system for industrial robots at Automate 2022

Veo Robotics, the industrial automation company that created FreeMove®a complete 3D backup system for industrial robots that powers dynamic human-robot collaboration, will exhibit FreeMove in booth #2718 at Automate 2022 taking place June 6-9, 2022 at the Huntington Place Convention Center in Detroit, Michigan.

FreeMove, enables high performance industrial robots to work collaboratively with people, enabling much more flexible, productive and efficient manufacturing work cells. Unlike other protective measures, Veo’s protective approach allows humans to operate side-by-side with industrial robots. FreeMove gives human workers the ability to enter a work cell while capturing and monitoring their presence, avoiding unsafe conditions.

In its booth, Veo will provide live demonstrations of how FreeMove uses dynamic velocity and separation monitoring to automatically trigger a robot to stop when human colleagues approach the robot during operation. This allows employees on facility floors to get close enough to make adjustments, move parts, or perform any other necessary action. Then, once they have moved a safe distance from the robot, the robot automatically resumes its task.

We’re thrilled to have North America’s largest robotics and automation show back after a two-year absence and excited to showcase our latest innovations with 3D speed and separation monitoring for collaboration. man-robot, said Patrick Toner, director of product marketing at Veo Robotics. “As manufacturers have been challenged by the pandemic, supply chain constraints and labor shortages over the past few years, they have only increased the number and use of industrial robots in their facilities. FreeMove is the only product currently available with the safety design needed to now unlock the true power of human-robot collaboration on the floors of their facilities.”

FreeMove has been certified compliant by TÜV Rheinland with ISO 13849 for PLd, Category 3. It enables human-robot collaboration with industrial robots rather than Power and Force Limited (PFL) robots, which means that manufacturers don’t have to sacrifice range, speed, or payloads.

Patrick Toner from Veo will also present a session at the show titled “Enabling dynamic and flexible human-robot collaboration with velocity and separation monitoring: insight into real-world applications. The conference, taking place Thursday, June 9 at 1:30 p.m. ET, will provide insight into the specific applications Veo’s FreeMove enables and lessons learned about next-generation human-robot collaboration technology while designing and implementing. implementation of the work cell.

Automate 2022 attendees can see FreeMove enable cageless industrial robot interaction at booth #2718 and arrange a meeting by contacting Veo prior to the conference.
