AIRSKIN is a safe collision sensor of the company Blue Danube Robotics which is based in Vienna, that enables collaborative applications at the highest safety level. In cooperation with TÜV Austria, the system is safety certified with the highest rating ISO 13849 in Cat. 3, PLe.
The soft pads of the safety padding cover the robot like a second skin, that prevents from clamping and shearing In the event of a collision between robot and a human, the collision sensor reacts and stops the robot immediately. In addition, the soft pads dampen impact forces. These properties make AIRSKIN ideal for use in ISO/TS 15066-compliant applications.
Our new magnetic mounting system ensures quick setup and easy maintenance. Even untrained employees can install AIRSKIN on a robot in less than 30 minutes. Since AIRSKIN is connected to the safety inputs like a conventional safety fence, there are no unexpected challenges during installation. This also saves time and money when integrating MRK-enabled applications. Other benefits that users benefit from include the elimination of separating safety fences, safety for employees during programming and program changes, increased hall space usage and higher speeds in collaborative applications.
