Yaskawa has introduced the new Motoman HC30PL collaborative robot, which can lift up to 30 kg and has a reach of 1,700 mm (from the centre of rotation of the S/L axis to the centre of rotation of the R/T axis). Because it can be used immediately within its area of operation without the need
A collaborative robot collaborates with humans in a defined space without risk of serious injury or accidents. The appeal of a cobot is not only its collaborative aspect, but also its ease of installation and return on investment (ROI). The collaborative robot series has taken off in a variety of industries, enabling new technological breakthroughs
