May 23, 2017

The new HC10 robot by Motoman is a collaborative robot that increased productivity while working directly next to humans. Collaborative robots do not require any safety barriers, they were designed to eliminate any operator pinch points or avoid any collisions that may occur. The HC10 brings it's six axes of productivity and flexibility to a wide range of applications such as material handling, machine tending, and light assembly tasks. ​

Motoman’s new col­lab­o­ra­tive robot, the six-axis HC10, offers flex­i­ble and afford­able task automa­tion. Motoman has a long his­to­ry of design­ing robots that are durable, reli­able, and offer min­i­mal down­time and the col­lab­o­ra­tive HC10 offers all of that and more! 

Col­lab­o­ra­tive robots were designed to help increase pro­duc­tiv­i­ty when work­ing with humans, while also ensur­ing ulti­mate safe­ty and an effec­tive un-caged work envi­ron­ment. The Motoman HC10 brings all of the above and more.

It offers a 10kg pay­load, 1,200 mm reach, and can tack­le a vari­ety of appli­ca­tions such as mate­r­i­al han­dling, machine tend­ing, or light assem­bly tasks. There are a vari­ety of func­tion-spe­cif­ic tool­ing options avail­able based on spe­cif­ic needs on the pro­duc­tion line.

The HC10 also has sev­er­al safe­ty fea­tures ensur­ing the utmost safe­ty when work­ing with or near human work­ers. For exam­ple, the Motoman HC10 has pow­er and force lim­it­ing tech­nol­o­gy that enables it to stop in the event of con­tact with an oper­a­tor. It has through-arm util­i­ties to help hide cabling and increase safe­ty by reduc­ing snag­ging or inter­fer­ence with oth­er equip­ment. The HC10 was also designed to elim­i­nate oper­a­tor pinch points and has dual torque sen­sors in all joints to help mon­i­tor force con­stant­ly and enable a quick reac­tion to contact.

The HC10 is high­ly con­fig­urable; users can also hand-guide the HC10 robot to teach it new pro­gram paths with the Easy Teach soft­ware. This soft­ware enables quick deploy­ment or rede­ploy­ment on demand which helps to decrease down­time and increase over­all ROI.

Advan­tages of the HC10 don’t stop there, the cycle times are opti­mized based upon risk assess­ment and process require­ments, whether the robot is oper­at­ing at full speed or col­lab­o­ra­tive speed.

Con­trol­ling the HC10 robot is the high-per­for­mance but com­pact YRC1000 con­troller. It has improved design fea­tures to help the ergonom­ics and decrease the weight. The YRC1000 con­troller also increas­es work effi­cien­cy with its 50% improved I/O com­mu­ni­ca­tion speeds. It also has a sin­gle con­troller-to-robot cable to help improve cable reli­a­bil­i­ty. If that isn’t enough, this new con­troller is built to a glob­al stan­dard and doesn’t require a trans­former for input volt­ages rang­ing from 380 VAC to 480 VAC
