HelMo the mobile robot system

Thanks to the deep expertise in industrial mobility of our sister company Stäubli WFT, we have developed a unique design of high-performance mobile robot systems that work fully autonomously, with the ability to navigate a diverse array of working environments, gather their own materials and then carry out the work.

HelMo represents the next level of Man-Robot Collaboration, whereby robots mix with human beings and work together with them or handle monotonous tasks on their own.

HelMo Features
HelMo mobile robot system with TX2-90L collaborative
High performance and dynamics

Speed, rigidity and precision combined with safety - the new TX2 robot range with its CS9 controller is the key element for the HelMo system.

Autonomous driving

The mobile robot system drives and navigates autonomously through its work environment. With its robust and spring-loaded drive unit, operation in almost every industrial sector is possible. No modifications of given floor conditions are needed.

Safety first

A TX2 robot with CS9 controller, 3 laser scanners, safe PLC and a tactile enclosure create a comprehensive safety package around the mobile robot system. Optionally a robot safe skin for MRC applications is available.
