ASTRO – 66

Collaborative robot (Cobot)

Why Astro-66?

The Astro-66 is the biggest of our collaborative cells. Supporting a FANUC Robot with a payload of up to 35 kg, this cell can easily handle heavier tasks like packaging and palletizing. The impressive size of this cobot cell doesn’t compromise safety. Like every cobot, the Astro-66 can share floor space with human workers in a fenceless environment.

Like any of our collaborative cells, the Astro-66 is customizable and flexible. Pre-engineered and pre-secured, this collaborative cell is the perfect ally for heavier tasks preventing potential injuries due to a repetitive effort.

The Astro Cell can be integrated into your production line with only 5 simple steps. Before the Astro-66 arrives at your factory, make sure its space has been prepared. The floor does not need to be perfectly leveled, as you will be able to adjust the cell by handling the pre-integrated ratchet handles on the wheels. The Astro cell needs an electric and a pneumatic connection. Make sure you have both of them set up. You can find more specifications about the Astro-66 installation procedure on the documentation shared on our website. Remember that DIY Robotics provides free support to help you at any moment if needed.

Turnkey solution

If you’re not comfortable installing and integrating the collaborative cell yourself, know that we partner with plenty of official integrators that can help turn our plug-and-play robotic cells into a turnkey solution that fits your needs. We can recommend a partner for your project, or you can pick one yourself according to your preference, on our turnkey solution page.
