SAN JOSE, CA—The Moonlight from Flexiv is a new adaptive parallel robot for applications that require precise motion and force control, such as screwdriving, polishing and ultra-accurate loading.

Incorporating force-control technology, the robot can precisely measure force down to 0.1 newton, so even delicate objects can be handled. This makes tasks such as polishing and sanding uneven surfaces possible while guaranteeing output quality and practically eliminating workpiece damage.

Repeatable and accurate, the robot can be installed at any angle. Artificial intelligence software enables the robot to handle applications that demand flexibility, reliability and adaptability.

“Moonlight is a combination of our award-winning Rizon series of robots and the industry-proven parallel bot design,” says Hao Jiang, director of product development for Flexiv. “We saw that in some specific applications, customers needed a powerful, cost-effective robot that combines highly precise force control with adaptability, so that’s what we built. With its increased speed and greater precision, Moonlight boosts production efficiency while retaining a multirole capacity.”
