Advanced, collaborative robotic automation with the MOTOMAN HC10.
Human-Collaborative robot with 6 integrated sensors.
The Yaskawa human collaborative robot MOTOMAN HC10 is a new generation of robotics that is capable, affordable, versatile, and easy to use and built with the industrial strength for which Yaskawa is known. These robots are for customers looking for easy automation, meaning an industrial robot to automate tasks that require it to work in close proximity to humans.
The HC10 ensures the required safety in direct contact with the operator by means of a sophisticated force/torque sensor in every axis, enabling flexible interaction between the robot arm and its environment. The HC10 can operate without additional protective measures like a safety fence, depending on the risk assessment. This saves space and costs. Its installation area is very flexible and therefore able to operate at different workplaces.
Besides the safety aspects, the main focus in the design of the new HC10 was on particularly user-friendly operation. Programming can be performed as “Easy teaching”, with the “Smart HUB” manual function. The robot arm was designed to avoid crushing zones.
