Low-cost robotic range, available from RS Components, simplifies complex tasks
Fully featured benchtop robotics solutions offer the functionality, accuracy and build quality of larger, more expensive models
Johannesburg, South Africa, 2 February, 2017 - RS Components (RS), the trading brand of Electrocomponents plc (LSE:ECM), the global distributor for engineers, has launched a new, low-cost, fast and accurate robotics solution.
Easy to programme – even for those who have never programmed a robotic arm before – the R12 and R17 benchtop robots from ST Robotics are capable of undertaking the most complex tasks, including product testing, sample handling, parts handling, machine feeding, welding, spraying and sound measurement.
Both models are supplied with controller, teach pad/pendant, all cables, connectors, RoboForthII and RobWin7 software with comprehensive manuals and, as a result, are ready to use immediately out of the box. Their high efficiency motor drives, solid machined-alloy construction and industrial-standard quality deliver outstanding accuracy and reliability, making them suitable for 24/7 operation without failure.
The R12 model comes in five- or six-axis variants, offers a 500 mm reach and is capable of handling a 1 kg payload. The larger R17 model, is a five-axis robot, with a six-axis option, and can handle a 3 kg payload over a reach of 750 mm. In total RS will stock 38 standard lines comprising the two different robot arms, several gripper formats and actuation methods (pneumatic/electric) and numerous optional accessories, including an Android/Bluetooth teach pad, vacuum grippers and USB and TCP/IP converters.
With many years’ experience in the domain, ST Robotics boasts that its robots’ high intelligence finds them niches in the most complex tasks, where they will do most of what their big brothers do, much that they cannot do and at a fraction of the price.
RS is providing large amounts of supplementary support in the form of compatible and complementary product listings, tutorials and bespoke entries within the highly popular DesignSpark section of its website.
