The revolutionary adaptive parallel robot incorporates Flexiv’s innovative force control technology. Specifically, Moonlight precisely measures force down to 0.1N so even delicate objects can be handled. This makes tasks like polishing and sanding uneven surfaces possible while guaranteeing output quality and practically eliminating workpiece damage.

Moreover, Moonlight features industry-leading levels of repeatability and accuracy and advanced artificial intelligence integration. Also, it allows installation at any angle. Specifically, this adaptive robot is suitable for any application that demands flexibility, reliability, and adaptability.

“Moonlight is a combination of our award-winning Rizon series of robots and the industry-proven parallel bot design,” said Hao Jiang, Director of Product Development for Flexiv. “We saw that in some specific applications, customers needed a powerful, cost-effective robotic solution 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.”

Moonlight completes tasks usually reserved for robot arms while maintaining the agility and speed of a parallel robot. These highlight features provide its operators with true operational versatility.
