CT6 COBOT TEST SYSTEM
Automated Collaborative Robot for Testing Biomedical Devices and Components
The CT6 cobot testing system introduces the benefits of automation to the testing of biomedical devices and components. This system pairs a collaborative robot with a 5900 or 6800 Series universal testing system to increase the efficiency of small to mid-sized testing labs that require a high degree of flexibility in their testing systems. The CT6 is designed to handle a wide range of medical components, including drug delivery, sample collection, and wound closure products.

Instron’s CT6 offers the benefits of automation to labs with shifting test requirements and specimen geometries. The CT6 integrates an easy-to-program cobot with a universal testing machine and Bluehill® Universal software to better enable QC and DV labs to meet their growing testing demand while improving the overall reliability of the data. Utilizing the CT6 avoids the hassles associated with using third party integrators by leveraging Instron's automation capabilities and application expertise.
The CT6 is an ideal automation solution for small to mid-sized labs where engineers often spend valuable time operating testing systems. The CT6 acts independently to load specimens, run tests, and unload specimens, allowing skilled operators to dedicate more time to value-added activities.
The CT6 is designed to be quickly and easily programmed with little to no help from Instron. This means that testing new devices or specimen sizes can be automated in-house with minimum time required for the initial setup.
The CT6 mitigates risk by ensuring that the operator is outside of the test space at all times when the frame is in motion. It also reduces operator interaction with hazardous specimens such as sharps and avoids the strains associated with repetitive loading and unloading of the system.
The use of the CT6 eliminates any operator introduced errors related to specimen alignment or data collection.
The CT6 is designed to be paired with existing or purpose-built fixturing to perform tests on a broad range of products and components. Our automation team can support the design and development of all automation-ready fixtures and specimen racking. Alternatively, the CT6 can serve as an add-on to your equipment, leaving the implementation to internal design teams. Here are some of the most common applications where the CT6 is optimal for introducing simple pick-and-pull automation to your lab.
