Yaskawa Motoman GP-Series Robots Provide High-Speed Handling to Boost Productivity

Ideal for high-speed assembly and handling applications, the new GP-series robots are fast, compact and efficient. Available now in three models - GP7, GP8 and GP12 - these six-axis robots offer the highest payload, fastest speed and highest wrist allowable moment in its class.

Yaskawa Motoman Collaborative Robot Offers Flexible and Affordable Task Automation

Featuring power and force limiting technology, Yaskawa Motoman's new six-axis HC10 robot works safely with, or in close proximity to humans by stopping the robot in the event of contact with an operator. Dual torque sensors in all joints constantly monitor force to quickly react to contact; something typically only found in more expensive systems. It is designed to eliminate operator pinch points while through-arm utilities hide cabling and increase safety by reducing the risks of snagging or interference with other equipment.

ST Robotics Develops the Workspace Sentry for Collaborative Robotics

ST Robotics Develops the Workspace Sentry for Collaborative Robotics

The ST Robotics Workspace Sentry robot and area safety system are based on a small module that sends an infrared beam across the workspace. If the user puts his hand (or any other object) in the workspace, the robot stops using programmable emergency deceleration. Each module has three beams at different angles and the distance a beam reaches is adjustable. Two or more modules can be daisy chained to watch a wider area. "A robot that is tuned to stop on impact may not be safe. Robots where the trip torque can be set at low thresholds are too slow for any practical industrial application. The best system is where the work area has proximity detectors so the robot stops before impact and that is the approach ST Robotics has taken," states President and CEO of ST Robotics David Sands.
