Mitsubishi launches pre-engineered robot work cell

Mitsubishi Electric Automation, Inc. (USA) has launched a pre-engineered robotic work cell. ARIA (Automated Robotic Industrial Assistant) is designed to help address labour shortages and productivity challenges across a multitude of industries. ARIA has a payload capacity of up to 13 kg and reach capabilities of 1503 mm, and is suitable for use as a standalone cell, or it can be implemented into a larger solution. Two different base options are offered: standard and machine tool bases.

ARIA’s Standard Base option is designed for various industry applications where flexibility and mobility are required. The Machine Tool Base is designed for tending CNC mills, lathes and Swiss applications. Both bases are suitable for Mitsubishi Electric collaborative, vertical/articulated and SCARA robots. Included in the ARIA package is an FX5 PLC, casters with jackscrews, a network switch with an external Ethernet port, an operator station and floor mounting brackets. Accessory add-on features include pre-programmed software packages, RT ToolBox3 software, MELFA Works for robot simulation, MELFA Safe Plus, Force Sensor, R86TB high-performance teach pendant and two HMI options.

“ARIA fulfils an immediate need for flexible and cost-effective automation that addresses common industry problems,” said David Simak, Product Manager (Service) at Mitsubishi Electric Automation. “Labour shortages, productivity challenges, and the need to maintain quality standards are major concerns across most industrial sectors. ARIA is powerful enough to act as a standalone cell and is fully configurable and mobile, making it an ideal solution to tackle multiple applications within a given facility.”
