AIRSKIN offers the highest industrial safety rating and enables productive automation without fences by ensuring workers’ safety around industrial robots. 

AIRSKIN will detect all collisions with the robot and associated tooling (free-space, clamping and shearing) and brings the robot to an immediate halt.

Simple & effective in use

AIRSKIN is certified to meet EN/ISO 13849-1 (PL e / Cat. 3) and EN/IEC 62061 (SIL 3). In addition, AIRSKIN is also designed to ensure that your robot application meets ISO 10218 (ISO/TS 15066) standards. AIRSKIN is simply connected to a safe input of the robot controller or a safety PLC.

To activate AIRSKIN, only 5 N of force are needed. The soft, thick pads will dampen collisions, absorb collision energy and avoid any high local pressures (see force and pressure limits in the ISO 10218 (ISO/TS 15066)).

Simple & effective in use

Increase in permissible speeds

For free-space collisions, AIRSKIN allows increases in permissible speeds of up to 60% compared to traditional cobots, thanks to its energy absorption properties.

For clamping collisions, the robot’s stopping distance in relation to the thickness of the AIRSKIN pads must be considered, and permissible speeds are obtained by measuring contact forces using an ISO 10218 (ISO/TS 15066) compliant measurement device.

To simplify your safety assessment process, we already offer safety documentation for a series of robot AIRSKINs.

Increase in permissible speeds

More Flexible Workspace

Increase your capacity and enjoy truly fenceless applications. Reduce your footprint in the shopfloor up to 90%.

Decrease Cycletime

Upgrade your industrial robots with AIRSKIN. Collaborative movement speeds significantly faster than traditional cobots (up to 1.3 m/s).

Increase ROI

Save costs and increase the ROI of production cells. Add AIRSKIN to your current industrial robot, allowing advanced levels of safety with the programming interface you are already familiar with.
