SCARA robot handles heavy payloads

09 March 2021

OMRON’s latest industrial robot – the new i4H SCARA – has been designed to meet the demands of mass customisation, allowing for high mixes of products at low volumes to offer a wider array of goods from a production line.

OMRON has simplified the design of complex tools by incorporating its EtherCAT module that is connected directly to the robot arm. The i4H also features interactive maintenance as a built-in out-of-the-box function. 

“In today’s global economy, the need for a customised production line is now more important than ever before. The i4H plays a key role in automating workflow while allowing workers to socially distance and focus on other tasks,” said Motohiro Yamanishi, senior general manager of the Robotics Business Development Project at OMRON’s Industrial Automation Company.

The SCARA robot is able to handle payloads of up to 15kg, while its EtherCAT connectivity feature enables synchronisation between other automation devices, enabling advanced assembly and inserting and mounting processes that require high accuracy and demanding throughput, as well as ensured quality control with vision integration. Additionally, the i4H is available in a wide range of configurations to fit any work cell.
