MELFA Assista - Mitsubishi Electric's collaborative robot

The MELFA Assista Cobot has been designed based on the Mitsubishi Electric's well-proven MELFA industrial robot arm. It allows collaboration with human co-workers with minimal guarding, and has been certified according to ISO/TS 15066 – the international standard specifying safety requirements for collaborative industrial robot systems.

The MELFA Assista is built to a robust design and operates with a position repeatability of ±0.02mm, in which it differs in no way from our standard industrial robots. This increases the number of potential applications where it can be installed, especially in assembly processes.

Setup times are short because teaching and programming is simple and visually based. For example, the ‘direct teach functionality’ allows the operator to take the gripper of the robot and move it to the required position, which is then saved as the target position for the robot movement.

Operators benefit from a new graphic programming environment called RT Visualbox: The robot is programmed using drag and drop icons that clearly indicate individual robot operations. This environment can also be used to simulate proposed robot programs.
