Cleanroom-Classified Robot

July 21, 2022
Comau's Racer-5 SE Robot combines an element-resistant shell with flexibility, high repeatability, and accuracy.

Designed for harsh settings with high risk of contamination, the RACER-5 SENSITIVE ENVIRONMENTS (Racer-5 SE) high-speed industrial robot is ideal for the pharmaceutical, health & beauty, F&B, and electronics industries. Featuring a protective water, heat, and grease-resistant coating, the ruggedized 6-axis articulated robot fully responds to the demand for IP67 certification, high-grade ISO 5 Cleanroom classification (ISO 14644-1), protection from chemical agents, and the need to reduce the risk of contamination. It also has NSF H1 food grade lubrication. Further benefits of the robot include reduced operator risk when working with potentially harmful chemicals and substances and increased productivity, traceability, and quality.

Racer-5 SE addresses the specific need for speed, accuracy and repeatability within cleanrooms and other sensitive environments. It has compact dimensions, 11 lb. (5 kg) payload, a 31.9 in. (809 mm) maximum reach, and a high-gloss, ruggedized, element-resistant shell.

Racer-5 SE can be used on a tabletop, inclined or mounted on a wall or ceiling, allowing it to easily automate applications with stringent requirements. Furthermore, Racer-5 SE is well-suited for the food and beverage industry, given that its white painted surface is approved for direct contact with all types of food (Reg Eu 1935/2004, Reg Eu 10 /2011, and Reg Eu 1895 /2005) and the IP67 rating protects it from peroxide, chlorine, alcohol, and other aggressive cleaning agents.

Fitted with stainless steel screws and covers, Racer-5 SE can be easily cleaned and decontaminated as often as needed, helping increase product quality and reduce the potential for human-related error or contamination. And because the electrical and air connectors and fittings are located outside the production zone, the robot has greater agility while minimizing the risk of damage. All this enables Racer-5 SE to ensure higher production quality, better performance, quicker cycle times, and reduced capital expenditures.
