Features : Features

■HIGH SPEED -World’s fastest in its class. Substantial improvements in productivity-

■COMPACT -Slim-design robot developed through pursuit of functionality and beauty-

・Maximum arm width: 193mm, Wrist width: 95mm
・Compact body yet with large operating range

■EASY-TO-USE -Substantially improved usability thanks to world’s first high density embedded wiring making possible a variety of installation methods-

・World’s first embedded wiring
 Arm ends accommodate installation of camera, servo gripper, high density sensor array etc.
・Floor-, ceiling- or wall-mount is available

■POWERFUL

・4 kg payload in all directions, the highest in its class(Overall arm length: 505mm/605mm)
・Adaptable to perform complex, massive hand or double hand movements in all directions without limitation
・Increased range of small robot applications in processes and improved flexibility in equipment and hand design

■ENVIRONMENTAL RESISTANSE

・Protected type(IP67) for use in harsh environment
・Double-seal construction to exclude cutting fluid and chips
・Resistant to water-soluble cutting fluids
