Motoman’s SDA10D robot is said to provide the reach, payload, speed, performance and flexibility required to perform various assembly, handling, machine tending, packaging and part transfer applications.
Both robot arms can work together on one task to double the payload or handle heavy parts, trays or pallets. The ability to use dual, independent arms to process parts reduces the need for custom fixturing and allows end-of-arm tooling to be simple, the company says. The robot can hold a part with one arm while performing operations on the part with the other arm, and it can also transfer a part from one arm to the other with no need to set the part down. Each arm has a 22.1-lb (10-kg) payload, a 28.3" (720-mm) horizontal reach and 56.7" (1,440 mm) vertical reach. Repeatability is ±0.004" (0.1 mm).
