Delta has demonstrated a digital twin of its power factory alongside a new generation of collaboration robots (cobots) for smart factory automation applications and a new 500kW DC ultra-fast charger for traditional and heavy-duty electric vehicles (EV).

The Delta cobots are designed for swift deployment and straightforward operation, offering plug-and-play functionality alongside intuitive programming. This innovation significantly bolsters Delta’s capabilities in smart factory automation, directly catering to the industry’s urgent requirements for adaptability and efficiency.

The cobot portfolio boasts payload capacities up to 30 kg, reach spans as long as 1800 mm, and compatibility with EtherCAT, CODESYS, and Modbus to ensure optimal levels of precision, in applications such as pick & place, palletizing, and welding.
The digital twin developed on Nvidia’s Omniverse platform simplifies the simulation process of tray and object detection on a demo robotic line by consolidating the 3D data of diverse equipment. The result on the demo line was an increase in the synthetic data generation capabilities. This saves time to plan and optimize factory operations before actual production starts.

At the Hannover Fair this week, Delta is also demonstrating a fast-charging station application, including the UFC500 500kW DC heavy-duty EV charger launched last month. This is designed for fleet and public charging and uses the DeltaGrid EVM to manage the prioritisation, scheduling, and configurable limits to charging power.

The UFC 500 can charge one heavy duty electric vehicle (e-truck/e-Bus) with large battery capacity at 460 kW power within 2 hours, which, on average, result in a driving range for a full-day operation.

“The UFC 500 delivers ultra-fast charging capabilities and, through integration with our own EV charging management system DeltaGrid EVM and energy storage solutions, significantly reduces pressure to the grid,” said Vincent Lin, Vice President of eMobility and Smart Energy Solutions at Delta EMEA.

The UFC500 is designed for complete system integration, including network connectivity, backward compatibility, and energy management. It has a sophisticated cable management system mounted on the top of the charging station to prevent damage with a moving arm extends the charging cable’s reach up to four metres.
