SCARA Expands Work Envelope

May 6, 2009
The RS3 SCARA robot features all the benefits of a typical SCARA plus enhanced capabilities that allow for design flexibility with more than 360 degrees of axis rotation for omnidirectional access.
The robot’s work space design is said to maximize work envelope usage. Its 350mm SCARA arm is reportedly the only one in the industry that offers a large working quadrangle greater than that of a typical 750mm SCARA arm. Since there is no dead space in the center of the work envelope, the robot's largest working quadrangle is 494mm x 494mm. With the ability to maneuver back under itself for the shortest movements possible instead of having to move around itself, the robot is said to deliver superior cycle rates.Epson
