Mitsubishi Electric Automation has announced the release of its RV-8CRL industrial robot, which offers a smaller base size, expanded effective working area and compatibility with safety intelligence components.
RV-8CRL is versatile in its applications, including pick and place, inspection and general assembly.
The RV-8CRL is designed for OEMs and end users.
The robot’s internal wiring and piping makes the robot easier to install, while its IP65 rating makes it “dust tight” and protected against water projected from a nozzle, widening application suitability.
RV-8CRL also features auxiliary components for safety, such as MELFA Safe Plus. This component, using additional sensors, will reduce speed and limit the range of robots up to a full stop when people or objects are detected in close proximity to the robot.
In addition, RV-8CRL’s battery-less internal encoders remove the need for battery backup, allowing it to maintain the same settings without the battery.
