R12 5/6 axis robot arm
Low cost 5 and 6 axis small collaborative robot arm
The R12 is a complete self-contained five or six axis vertically articulated robot arm system designed as a cost effective solution for bench top automation. Applications include testing, sample handling, machine feeding. The hand terminates in a mounting plate to which can be mounted one of our low cost grippers, vacuum pickups or your own device.
R12 is a very low cost entry to real industrial robotics, fast, accurate and reliable and easy to program yet capable of the most complex tasks. It has a useful 500mm reach and a 500g payload. Designed by a young engineer building on our existing R17 technology it is a breakthrough in bench top robotics. It is lighter, faster and quieter than R17, using high efficiency digital motors driving through steel reinforced polyurethane timing belts. Optional incremental optical encoders provide exceptional integrity as well as safety (see below).
Note that R12 is not a hobby robot. It is a professional tool made to industrial standards, machined from solid alloy and finished with aesthetic acrylic covers.
The system is supplied complete with controller, all cables, connectors, software, comprehensive manuals, ready to unpack and use immediately.
The R12 package includes the K11 controller that is simple and reliable using a partnership of CPU and DSP micro-processors and compact micro-stepping drives. ROBOFORTH II embedded software gets you started easily yet permits the most complex motions, interfaces and peripherals to be programmed, assisted by ROBWIN project manager that brings everything together on one Windows screen.
