4-AXIS SCARA ROBOTS​

Denso  |  Omron  |  Yaskawa

Four-axis robots are also known as SCARAs, an acronym for Selective Compliance Articulated Robot Arms. Four-axis SCARA robots have four degrees of freedom (DOF) and are suited for tasks that require high speed and precision in the horizontal direction. They are ideal for assembly, kitting, and packaging.

4-AXIS SCARA ROBOTS

Denso 4-Axis robots

DENSO offers three 4-Axis robots, the HS-A1, HSR, HM and XR Series, each with a different range of arm lengths and payload capacities. Options include Cleanroom (ISO 3), Dust- and mistproof (wrist IP65, unit IP54), Ceiling-mount and more. The HS-A1 Series is a compact, four-axis SCARA robots that offers the highest speed and repeatability in their class. The HSR Series uses advanced vibration control, a newly designed, highly rigid lightweight arm and improved heat dissipation in the base unit to achieve new levels of continuous high-speed performance and repeatability. The HM Series offers are small industrial robots, with outstanding speed and repeatability and a compact, space saving design. The HM Series can handle 20 kg payloads.

FEATURES

  • Small industrial robots have a compact, space-saving design
  • Quick acceleration
  • Runs continuously at high speed
  • Maximum allowable moment of inertia of 0.45 kgm2 is six times larger than that of conventional robots
  • Available in standard or dust and mistproof (IP65) configurations

Omron SCARA Robots

Omron’s eCobra SCARA robots offer a compact system footprint, saving valuable floor space while minimizing installation costs and complexity. deliver performance unmatched in the industry and are ideal for mechanical assembly, material handling, packaging, machine tending, screw driving, and other applications that require fast and precise automation. This unique family ensures that users receive the highest quality, most durable robots at every performance level. Main features:

  • Amplifiers and controls are fully embedded into the robot to maximize valuable floor space and reduce installation costs (cables, control cabinets, labor, etc)
  • Three performance levels (Lite, Standard, and Pro) based on a common hardware platform.
  • Easily upgrade your robot to increase production throughput with a simple software upgrade
  • Direct PLC programming are included in Standard and Pro performance tiers- minimize training
  • Adept ACE™ provides an effective way to deploy applications, without lengthy, overly-complicated programming

Yaskawa SCARA Robots

Omron’s eCobra SCARA robots offer a compact system footprint, saving valuable floor space while minimizing installation costs and complexity. deliver performance unmatched in the industry and are ideal for mechanical assembly, material handling, packaging, machine tending, screw driving, and other applications that require fast and precise automation. This unique family ensures that users receive the highest quality, most durable robots at every performance level. Main features:
  • T-axis features high allowable moment of inertia
  • Asymmetric loads are handled effectively without compromising speed or performance
  • FS100 controller is small, powerful and open

Cartesian (Gantry) Robots

Ceiling mounted, flexible SCARA robots
Some robots don’t look like robots at all. Cartesian systems, or gantries, can come in a variety of configurations such as X-Y-Z or X-Y-Z-Theta. They are a good option where the work envelope is not conducive to the size and shape of a traditional SCARA robot. They are also capable of long reach and are pre-engineered so there are no custom engineering costs. Denso’s XR Series is a compact four-axis gantry robot that is a SCARA robot combined with a long-stroke Cartesian robot. Because of its ceiling mount and integrated design, Denso’s XR Series robots use up to 40 percent less factory floor space than a conventional SCARA robot. In addition, they can operate in many applications without the need of a conveyor, saving up to 20 percent in capital equipment costs. Main features:
  • Outstanding speed and repeatability
  • Ceiling mount saves space
  • Reduces equipment investment
