  • Yaskawa Motoman’s new six-axis HC10 robot works safely with, or in close proximity to humans by stopping the robot in the event of contact with an operator. Dual torque sensors in all joints constantly monitor force to quickly react to contact; something typically only found in more expensive systems. It is designed to eliminate operator pinch points while through-arm utilities hide cabling and increase safety by reducing the risks of snagging or interference with other equipment.

    Utilizing Easy Teach software, the user can hand-guide the HC10 robot when teaching new program paths. This allows the HC10 to be quickly deployed or redeployed on demand, decreasing system downtime and increasing ROI. Whether operating at full speed or collaborative speed, cycle times are optimized based upon risk assessments and process requirements. 

    The highly configurable HC10 offers a 10-kg payload and 1,200 mm reach and can perform a broad range of material handling, machine tending or light assembly tasks. Function-specific tooling and accessories are available from various Yaskawa partners.

    The HC10 collaborative robot leverages Yaskawa’s long history of building robots that are durable and reliable, resulting in minimal downtime.

    The HC10 robot is controlled by Yaskawa’s new high-performance YRC1000 controller that is built to a global standard and does not require a transformer for input voltages ranging from 380VAC to 480VAC. The YRC1000 is highly compact (598 W x 490 H x 427 D mm), resulting in reduced space requirements. Its I/O communication speed is improved by as much as 50% for improved work efficiency and a single controller-to-robot cable improves cable reliability. The improved programming pendant design features enhanced ergonomics and lighter weight.
  • Ideal for high-speed assembly and handling applications, the new GP-series robots are fast, compact and efficient. Available now in three models – GP7, GP8 and GP12 – these six-axis robots offer the highest payload, fastest speed and highest wrist allowable moment in its class.

    The GP-series robots offer improved acceleration/deceleration control for all robot positions resulting in overall improved productivity. The small footprint, slim arm design allows for minimum installation space and minimizes interference with peripheral devices. This enables the GP-series robots to be placed in close proximity to workpieces and other robots to create flexible, high-density layouts. Installation is quick and efficient. A single cable is all that is needed to connect the manipulator to the controller, resulting in easy setup and reduced expenses for maintenance and spare parts inventory.

    The fast and precise GP7 and GP8 robots are ideal for high-volume assembly, handling and packaging processes. Axis speeds have been increased by up to 39%, increased maximum reach allows operation in wider work areas and the slim arm design allows these robots to delve deeply into the workspace. Both models feature an IP67 washdown rating with an easy-to-clean surface that can resist dust and coolants, making them ideal for use in sanitary or harsh environments. As an option, the manipulator cable can be connected on the bottom of the robot (as opposed to the side) to reduce interference with walls. The GP7 offers a 7 kg payload capacity, 927 mm horizontal reach and 1,693 mm vertical reach. The GP8 offers an 8 kg payload capacity, 727 mm horizontal reach and 1,312 mm vertical reach.

    The GP12 robot offers a higher 12-kg payload capacity and its axis speeds have been increased up to 15% for increased productivity. It features a 1,440 mm horizontal reach and 2,511 vertical reach, as well as an IP67-rated wrist and IP54 body (IP65 optional). Cables and utilities are routed through its hollow arm structure eliminating cable interference.

    All three models feature easy maintenance including a data saving feature that permits the robot’s wire harness to be replaced without having to connect it to a battery. All models can be floor-, ceiling- or wall-mounted.

    The GP-series robots are controlled by Yaskawa’s new high-performance YRC1000 controller that is built to a global standard and does not require a transformer for input voltages ranging from 380VAC to 480VAC.
