Low cost SCARA robots used to only exist on engineers’ wishlists. Historically, pick and place applications typically involved either pneumatic or electromechanical actuators (aka Cartesian robots). The problem with using traditional actuators for pick and place applications is that everything needs to be perfectly aligned to work properly. Adjust the location of a pick or a place just slightly, and everything needs to be adjusted. In addition, due to the nature of the components, cycle times tend to be relatively slow.
To alleviate that gripe, Mitsubishi Electric has released a compact, lightweight, low cost SCARA robot ideal for pick and place applications. With a sub $10k price tag, you can now have the infinite flexibility and speed of a SCARA robot without the high cost.
The RH-CH line of compact industrial SCARA robots are lightweight, full-function robots ready to meet the needs of today’s manufacturers at a price for even the most budget-conscious of customers. With a range of payloads, reaches, and protection ratings to choose from, these robots are well-suited for Pick & Place, Assembly, Material Handling, and Packaging applications. Equipped with the same powerful CR751-D controller found on other F-Series robots, and sporting a number of valuable options as standard equipment, the RH-CH line of robots provide users with excellent value and performance.
