Motoman has added a new, low-payload model to its SDA dual arm series.
Like the other members of the SDA family, the SDA10D and SDA20D, the SDA5D has 15 axes of movement (seven axes in each arm, and one central axis in its torso). However, the SDA5D handles a payload of just 5kg on each arm and is able to provide greater repeatability (+/- 0.06mm) and higher speeds.
Advantages of Dual-Arm Robots:
Because of their ability to move with human-like dexterity and coordination, they are well-suited for assembly, pick and place, and material handling applications. The SDA5D works with a DX100 controller, which is able to orchestrate up to 72 axes.
Not only do SDA series robots offer quick cycle times and minimize waste, their design eliminates the need for expensive EOAT or positioners. One arm can hold the part while the other works on it.
This new Motoman robot is designed to take up very little room. Its base only takes up a space 280 x 280mm. It's lithe torso and arms easily access hard to reach areas and parts. The SDA5D offers a wide work envelope with 845mm horizontal reach and 1,118mm vertical reach.
