Wyzo the sidebot to be introduced at PACK EXPO Las Vegas
Wyzo, the world’s first direct-drive pick-and-place sidebot, will be showcased to the U.S. market for the first time at PACK EXPO Las Vegas.
From artisan companies taking their first steps into automation to established large-scale manufacturers, can experience first-hand how Wyzo can work safely side-by-side with humans with zero protective barriers or performance compromises. Ideal for lightweight applications with a payload up to 1.1 pounds, Wyzo is suitable for the food and beverage, consumer goods, pharmaceutical, cosmetics, automotive, electrical and electronics sectors.
Wyzo is the result of 30 years of Delta robot experience, coupled with a vision to deliver a safe and highly efficient sidebot that can add considerable value to operations of all sizes. Its pioneering direct-drive technology means there is no gearbox – reducing maintenance costs to near zero — while its compact design and high-speed operation of up to 90 cycles per minute make it the perfect option for day-to-day tasks on the production floor. Wyzo’s advanced safety system is enabled through its state-of-the-art sensor technology, which constantly monitors its surroundings for the presence of human activity, while optional vision systems compatible with a variety of established hardware platforms ensure ease of integration into any production environment.
With labor availability an ongoing challenge, ease-of-use has also become ever more important. As a result, Wyzo’s Human Machine Interface (HMI) has been designed for intuitive use by operators with no prior training in automated solutions, while its mobile terminal is as easy to operate as a smartphone and requires neither script nor programming to get it up and running. Its advanced software has been developed with pure flexibility in mind, meaning Wyzo can be moved quickly and efficiently between multiple workstations with only a single cable connection to remove and reattach.
Two Wyzo sidebots will be on display at PACK EXPO booth 6027, Sept. 27-29 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, allowing visitors to experience its capabilities first-hand.
