What is a SCARA Robot?​ A SCARA robot is a four-axis robot that is designed for high-speed, repetitive material handling applications like assembly, machining, pick and place, packaging, and inspection. They simulate the movements of the human arm but can perform tasks with unparalleled speed and precision. SCARA robots handle low payloads and offer a compact footprint. Because of their quickness and efficiency, they can increase productivity and lower costs, while improving the safety of employees. SCARA is an acronym for Selective Compliance Articulated Robot Arm.
