Is anyone doing any explosion proof painting applications with the Universal Robot?
We looked at this a bit a tried to see if anyone could provide an explosion proof suit for the UR robot. The main feature of explosion proof robots like Fanuc is that they have a constant air pressure flowing in the robot arm to keep fumes outside the robot mechanical unit. So it feasible to have a suite that would keep a certain air pressure level inside. However, it seems like no one did the explosion proof certification for such a suit.
Hope that helps!
I just found out about an explosion proof UR10 : UR10 XP.
It's prepared by http://www.omnirobotic.com/.
In QC of all places.
