Key Features

  • Flexible Configuration
    Flexible Configuration

    Easily scale and augment your RTM-YAG18 robotic module to match the requirements of you curriculum.
    The RTM-YAG18, like other GennFlex training modules, comes in a standard base package that can be easily adapted to your unique curriculum requirements. The flexibility of the design allows using the RTM-YAG18 at different levels of training complexity, from the basics all the way to the levels approaching the real production environment.

  • Scalable Solution
    Scalable Solution

    The RTM-YAG18 operates independently, or in conjunction with the other GennFlex industrial training modules. Representing the next generation of industrial training systems, the RTM-YAG18 is more than a stand-alone robot cart - it is part of a highly adaptable and modular industrial training system.

  • Working Surface Modularity

SAFETY FEATURES

Student safety is the cornerstone of our design philosophy

  • Safety Scanner
    Safety Scanner

    Fenceless design with integrated IDEC or Keyence laser safety scanner offers 270ᵒ of unobstructed coverage for a safe working zone. If anyone enters the safe zone during robot operation, the scanner will instantly stop the robot.

  • Reduced Robot Speed
    Reduced Robot Speed

    Robot play speed is limited to 25% for safety.

  • Emergency stop switch
    Emergency stop switch

    In addition to the integrated safety scanner, there is an emergency stop switch located on the Smart or Standard pendant.

  • Light Tower
    Light Tower

    Immediate indication of process status is a must in any industrial application. The RTM-YAG18 includes a 3-Tier IDEC Light Tower mounted on the back wall of the module.
