The robot safety skin is a protective skin for robots and moving machine parts. It is installed in collision-critical areas to dampen the force of impact in case of a collision and to put the system into safe mode. It consists of two plastic shells and an integrated electronic system. During a collision, the outer shell presses the inner shell. The electronic system registers this contact and the system stops immediately.
The robot safety skin makes the collaboration of humans and machines in one workspace possible – entirely without a protective fence.
