Kawasaki Releases General-Purpose RS007N and RS007L Small Payload Robots
October 19, 2017
Kawasaki Robotics introduces the RS007N and RS007L, two 6-axis vertically articulated robots with maximum payload capacity of 7 kg and different reach. The company developed these two models in response to rising demand for compact robots in the electronics and food industries, as well as industries where such robots have already become standard. The RS007N and RS007L are the latest additions to the company's general-purpose R series line of small-to-medium payload (3-80 kg) robots, which offers excellent functional and environmental performance for assembly, material handling, machine tending and other applications.
Superior Speed The redesigned arm structure and drive system provide greatly increased maximum and acceleration speeds. By adjusting acceleration rates in accordance with load weights and robot positioning, these models also offer consistently optimized performance by significantly reducing cycle times.
Expanded Working Range By utilizing a cantilever design for the upper arm section, Kawasaki has achieved a longer maximum reach and an expanded range of motion: below, behind and in the immediate vicinity of the robot.
First Rate Environmental Protection The dust-proof RS007N and RS007L robots feature a double-seal construction on all axes and waterproof electrical connections, offering an IP67 classification for the wrist and IP65 for the remaining axes.
Highly Flexible Installation These floor or ceiling mount models are designed to house vision cables, sensor harnesses, air lines and other components inside the arm structure. This prevents interference with and from peripheral equipment, thus allowing for operation in tight installation spaces.
