The two manipulator arms move up and down independently on the vertical lifting axis that has a turning axis on its base. The DA9IC can minimize capital equipment cost by eliminating the need for conveyors and expensive part fixturing, and maximize flexibility by using one arm as a part positioner for the other arm, says the vendor. One dual-arm DA9IC robot takes up less space than two single-arm robots, and a single, integrated NXC100 robot controller coordinates the movement of both arms while automatically preventing collisions. The DA9IC features a 9kg (19.85lb) payload per arm, maximum horizontal reach of 1,512mm (59.5in.) and repeatability of +/-0.1mm (0.004in.).
