Yaskawa Motoman has debuted a new 20 kilogram-payload HC20XP collaborative robot (cobot).
The cobot is well-suited for applications where robots need to safely work with, or in close proximity to humans.
The HC20XP is an IP67-rated collaborative robot equipped for continuous use in damp or splash-prone environments.
Made of cast aluminum for durability, this model features an easy-to-clean surface, allowing utilization in sanitary environments where wipe or wash is required.
NSF H1 food-grade grease is included as standard, enabling use in settings where there is a possibility of incidental food contact.
The HC20XP features a 1,700 mm maximum reach, making it ideal for a broad range of material handling, machine tending or assembly tasks.
Meeting established safety standards (ISO 13849-1 and ISO 10218-1) and complying to ISO TS 15066, the HC20XP offers four modes of collaborative operation, including Power and Force Limiting (PFL), where dual channel torque sensors in all joints constantly monitor force to quickly and safely react to contact.
