CPS is an automation company that are operating out of Tuam, Co Galway for over 20 years. They have developed to become one of the leading manufacturers in the design of bespoke equipment and materials handling in Ireland. They provide turn-key solutions for clients across the globe with proven cost reduction, increased efficiency and return on investment.

CPS is showcasing the Flexlink ‘CoboPal’ (collaborative palletizing robot). The collaborative robots (Cobots) designed to work along-side people safely. Its main objective is to assist operators by carrying out the tedious and repetitive tasks; for example a pick and place solution for palletising.

The Flexlink CoboPal is light weight, and therefore can ‘Plug & Play’ and moved from location to location easily if required. It also has a small footprint as no safety enclosures are required. Safety sensors are built in that will detect the presence of people and their location. A very sensitive overload stop is built in; if the CoboPal comes in contact with an obstacle it will halt immediately, therefore avoiding potential danger to the staff working nearby.

The CoboPal is easily programmed, has been designed so that anyone who can use a smart phone/tablet can programme the CoboPal.
