Yaskawa Motoman recently introduced the prototype of the first collaborative robot, the Human Collaborative 10 (HC10), to be available to the entire world!Typically, industrial robots are placed behind curtains, fencing, or other barriers as they move with a lot of power and force that could injure a human worker. However, robotics manufacturers, such as FANUC, Motoman, KUKA, and ABB, are realizing the advantage of collaborative robots for certain applications and industries.

KUKA brings to you its very first industrial, sensitive, lightweight robot; the LBR iiwa. “LBR” stands for “Leichtbauroboter,” which is German for lightweight robot. The LBR iiwa is made of aluminium which affords it a huge weight savings. The "iiwa” stands for “intelligent industrial work assistant" as it truly becomes a colleague and third human hand.

The FANUC M-900iA/400L is a long reach, heavy duty robot that can tackle large parts very easily with the robust wrist, rugged arm, and high inertia mode software.  It is a floor mounted robot, ideal for heavy material handling applications as it can handle up to 400kg! The M-900iA/400L is designed to be robust and rugged, which minimizes spare part requirements, helps to reduce down time, and also increases the average time between failure.

Motoman’s EA1400N is a dedicated “Expert Arc” welding robot that was deliberately designed to maximize arc welding applications. The intentional design has made the EA1400N one of the most popular robotic arms due to its incredibly streamlined nature, durable cable integration, large work envelope, and mounting flexibility.It is a six-axis robot with a 3 kg payload, +/- 0.08 repeatability, and a 1,390 mm (54.7") horizontal reach and a 2,427 mm (95.6") vertical reach.

The multi-purpose Motoman HP20D brings high-speeds and superior performance in a wide variety of applications such as packaging, press tending, welding, handling, machine tending, material removal, handling, dispensing, and cutting.  The fast speeds help to increase productivity, the compact design helps to improve part accessibility, and the reliability ensures a robust and rigid robot with increased inertia.

Motmoman's "Expert Handling" EH80 robot is truly an expert in its class; the ±0.07 mm repeatability and high speeds just cannot be beat. It is a fast and flexible solution to meet your automation needs for any dispensing, handling, and/or material removal applications. In addition, the Motoman EH80 has an IP67 rated wrist and a IP54 rated body, or optional IP65 if needed.

Automated welding offers businesses more freedom as their workers can complete multiple tasks at once. For instance, it allows for the loading of one side of a work cell simultaneously as the other side is welding. This ultimately increases the speed of the welding application while also shielding workers from dangerous welding fumes and glare.When deciding to automate and choose which robot is best for your arc welding needs, consider the Arc Mate 100iC series.

The FANUC ArcMate 100iBe answers the call for precision and peak productivity for your next arc welding job.FANUC thoughtfully designed all elements of this system to enhance product quality and output. This is seen with the incredible reach/stroke ratio of 1,373 mm reach to 985 mm stroke. In addition, the high-six-axis speeds and condensed wrist design help to minimize air cut times.

The FANUC R-2000iA/210F is a six-axis, heavy duty industrial robot that has a light, fast, and compact arm, none of which sacrifice its great reach or high payload. The R-2000iA/210F is a hard worker with an industry leading payload capacity, tackling any payload up to 210 kg and a reach of 2650mm. It is a multipurpose robot used for a variety of applications across all sorts of industries. It can be used for spot welding, part transfer, material removal, and dispensing.

The FANUC R-2000iB/125L brings you one of the best cost performance robots with its intelligence, reach, reliability, and versatility. It is a six axes, heavy payload (up to 125 kg), intelligent industrial robot integrated for versatile applications with up-to-date expertise. This robot is perfectly designed for precision and speed for a wide variety of applications such as assembly, machining/loading, material removal, dispensing, spot welding, and part transfer.
