Super-Fast Robot Arm

ST R17HS High Speed Robot Arm

ST Robotics has announced the addition of the new ST R17HS - a high-speed version of its 5-axis vertically articulated R17 robot arm. "Designed to be one of the industry's fastest robots, the ST R17HS' standard tool speed is over four times as fast as the nearest competitor, yet it is less than half the price," said a company spokesperson.

The ST R17HS uses brushless servomotors and has a reach of 750 mm, a repeatability of 0.2 mm and a maximum speed after acceleration of 480 deg/sec in the robot's waist, elbow, hand and wrist, with a shoulder speed of 300 deg/sec.

"The R17HS is the result of years of development that puts us ahead of the field," said David Sands, President and CEO of ST Robotics. "Customers are finding it useful for high throughput production as well as testing applications requiring fast motion of test devices."
