Coming Soon: GoldStar Automation introduces the Meca500 from Mecademic
When we founded GoldStar Automation, we did so with a promise: to provide industry leading technology and new ideas to our customers. Sound easy? There is a lot happening in the world of automation and manufacturing. Spotting the next big thing is a challenge. Additionally, we decided that the solutions we represent should equally make sense to large organizations and medium to smaller companies.
For instance, the robotic industry has literally launched the automation market into the next millennium. Gone are the days of robots exclusively making waves and saving resources in fortune 500 corporations. Collaborative technology, and the pervasive marketing that goes with it, dominates trade shows and magazines. We see it on weekly news programs and in commercial ads for major appliance and automotive manufacturers. Moreover, when once there were only one or two companies providing “cobots”, now most robot manufacturers have thrown their hat into the ring.
A year ago, we found something very special in the middle of the collaborative whirlwind. When everyone else was trying to appear large and “cobotic”, Mecademic focused on a safe robot that promised simple to use programming techniques, an industrial stature and the most accurate, repeatable performance in the industry (5um). Especially unique about the Meca500, it is the most compact six-axis robot in the market.
The Meca500 does not require a proprietary robot programming language to do work. With basic programming knowledge and the built-in controller, in the robot base, all you need is a laptop and you are ready to get started. The Meca500 is safe to work around operators, with due diligence, as it operates in a light class of payloads (.5kg). Think of the Meca500 as a plug and play tool, capable of the most complex, robotic operations.
The Meca500 is an industrial tool, suitable for use in a typical factory setting. With polished aluminum body components, zero backlash gearing and encoder based servo motors on each joint, projects that require precision are achieved with amazing simplicity.
Because the Meca500 is so compact and easy to transport, it is a great tool for universities and educational programs focused on robotic and automation technologies.
GoldStar Automation is proud to provide this powerful tool to our customers. We are equally proud of our partners at Mecademic and their dedication to creating a robot unlike any other. Contact us soon to schedule your on-site demonstration.
