NEW Eva Collaborative Robot being tested at Optima, Blackburn.

We’ve been trialling the new Eva Collaborative robot ready for use at some of our customer sites in the UK. The applications for this are limited only by your imagination and ingenuity. Collaborative robots still need guarding so we’ll be doing a full risk assessment of the installation and providing a safety control system that will be designed by our TUV-certified engineers for each of the installations. Please contact Optima if you would like a demonstration of this robot at your site or at our premises.

Since installing a Kuka robot to replace a custom label applicator robot in a critical part of the process at a major paper mill, Optima have now installed and commissioned over 6 Robot applications in a wide variety of industries.

These applications range from container handling to box and tin stacking applications often with multi-purpose gripper tooling to maximise asset use.

We have installed both ABB and Kuka robots, integrating them seamlessly into our own custom-designed cells with Siemens PLC controllers using the latest technology such as ProfiSafe interfaces to obtain maximum reliability and diagnostics from the robot cell safety system.

Our customers are pleased with what we have achieved for them as one site engineer states:

“Improved reliability was the main aim for us; the new robot is now functioning 100% of the time so we can claim the whole project to be a success. It is critically important for us to maximise our machine up-times and the solution from Optima and Kuka is fully delivering on that promise. A number of other automation projects are planned and we are looking forward to working with Optima and KUKA Robots again.”
