Robot Emulates Human Arm

April 9, 2008
The Presto MR20 robot is designed to provide a compact arm and powerful body with a wrist torque 2 times that of comparable-sized robots.

The robot arm features a 7-axis design supporting up to a 30kg payload capacity. The 7th axis design allows the robot to emulate the motions of a human arm, enabling it to perform more complicated work processes in constricted work areas. The robot features a horizontal reach of 1260mm and a repeatability of +/-0.1mm. Built on a compact base, the MR20 uses two 6mm through-arm pneumatic lines, 18 conductor signal cable, and through-arm support for servo gripper tooling. The arm is controlled by the vendor’s AX20 series controller and has a simplified programming solution that utilizes the primary 6 axes unless selected by the programmer.
