Both the Kawasaki RS007N and RS007L robots continue to offer the operational advantages of the R series robots while incorporating a newly redesigned arm structure and main-unit weight reductions. These enhancements result in the fastest operating speeds in these robots’ class (12,100 mm/s) along with increased working ranges. By redesigning the arm structure and adjusting the acceleration rates in accordance with load weights and robot positioning, these models also offer consistently optimized performance by significantly reducing cycle times.
Industry-Leading Speed & Flexibility
The new robot’s design includes a new arm structure, drive system and lighter main unit, which enables high speeds and a large working area. Its 1,460 mm reach is the largest in its class, allowing for installation flexibility and use in a wider variety of applications. The RS013N robot also leads its class in speed, resulting in reduced cycle times and increased productivity.
In addition to its expanded work area, the robot’s wiring and installation options contribute to its overall flexibility. The robot’s internal Ethernet wiring enables easy connection to a vision system or other peripheral devices, and its floor, ceiling and wall mount options provide installation flexibility for any layout. The dust-tight RS013N offers a full-body IP67 rating, fully covered motors and waterproof electrical connections. Kawasaki’s next generation R series robots (RS007N/L and RS013N) also have reduced interference zones around the robot base, which allows the user to maximize their floor space and working area.
Built for Longevity
Kawasaki’s new R series robots are designed with ease of use and longevity in mind. The motor has been moved and covered to protect it from harsh environments and workplace wear, and the new motor location on the base allows for enhanced protection and easier serviceability.
