Yaskawa Motoman’s six-axis HC10 cobot works safely with or near humans by stopping in the event of contact with an operator. Through-arm utilities hide cabling and increase safety by reducing the risks of snagging or interference with other equipment. The cobot has a 10 kg payload and 1,200 mm reach. It can perform a range of material handling, machine tending, packaging and light assembly tasks.
Users can hand guide the cobot to teach it new programme paths. Its compact YRC1000 controller measuring 598 × 490 × 427 mm reduces space requirements and a single controller-to-robot cable improves reliability.
