The bumper is custom-molded to the teach pendant’s exterior shell, and features a “stretch-to-fit” installation (akin to a cell phone bumper).
Manufactured from Santoprene rubber, this bumper provides excellent protection for the UR teach pendant if accidentally dropped. Santoprene is immune to water, most water-based cleaning agents, and features excellent resistance to most industrial lubricants, coolants and cutting fluids. . Protective ridges are molded around rotary switches and e-stop buttons—but do not interfere with their operation. Access to the USB connection is also preserved. The bumper is textured to maintain positive grip/ feel in wet conditions or in the presence of lubricants/ coolants. The energy-absorbing frame is perforated throughout the grip areas for weight-savings and to reduce surface tension/accumulation of fluids.
