The Panasonic VR-016 is perfect for medium-duty material handling applications. Part of Panasonic's high performance welding series, the VR-016 fits smooth, high-speed movements in a compact package. The articulated axis configuration results in a wide working envelope while requiring a minimal footprint. An offset wrist allows the unique ability of this robot series to significantly improve the torch angle and allow for increased access to the work area.
Paired with the dynamic Panasonic G2 controller, the VR-016 is easy to program and operate. The G2 controller is powered by Windows CE, a graphical user interface that is familiar to many computer users. Commands are entered through a teach pendant with a 7-inch LCD display and processed with a powerful 64-bit CPU. A single G2 controller can control up to 5 digital welding machines and harmonize the movements of 3 robots simultaneously.
