These small tabletop robots can be equipped with a variety of intelligent features including robot vision and force sensing functionality for higher levels of accuracy and productivity.

The robot features a slim arm and compact footprint to minimize interference to peripheral devices in tight spaces. It’s available in three variations: standard, short and long arm. Wrist load capacity is four kilograms to 14 kilograms, with up to six-axis articulation.

The robot has an integrated thru-arm cable option for iRVision, force sensing, Ethernet and auxiliary axes, as well as flexible mounting (upright, invert, angle).•

Its standard IP67 rating allows operation in factory environments with dust and oil mist; many variants have an optional IP69K rating for wash proof, clean room or food grade environments.
