Yaskawa Motoman Collaborative Robot Offers Flexible and Affordable Task Automation

Featuring power and force limiting technology, Yaskawa Motoman’s new six-axis HC10 collaborative robot works safely with, or in close proximity to humans by stopping the robot in the event of contact with an operator. Dual torque sensors in all joints constantly monitor force to quickly react to contact; something typically only found in more expensive systems. It is designed to eliminate operator pinch points while through-arm utilities hide cabling and increase safety by reducing the risks of snagging or interference with other equipment.
