Medium Payload Robot

Kawasaki Robotics has added the RS013N robot to its R series general purpose robot line.

"The RS013N builds on the momentum started by the RS007N/L models in 2017 by offering a 13 kg payload capacity, small footprint and flexible, IP67-classified design, ideal for practically any general application for any industry," said a company spokesperson.

The robot's design includes a new arm structure and lighter main unit, which enables high speeds and a large working area. "Its 1,460 mm reach is the largest in its class, allowing for installation flexibility and use in a wider variety of applications. The RS013N robot also leads its class in speed, resulting in reduced cycle times and increased productivity," said the spokesperson.

In addition to its expanded work area, the robot's wiring and installation options contribute to its overall flexibility. The robot's internal Ethernet wiring enables easy connection to a vision system or other peripheral devices, and its floor, ceiling and wall mount options provide installation flexibility for any layout. The dust-tight RS013N offers a full-body IP67 rating, while fully covered motors and waterproof electrical connections allow the robot to be used in virtually any environment, including food and cleanroom applications. Kawasaki's next generation R series robots (RS007N/L and RS013N) also have reduced interference zones around the robot base, which allows the user to maximize their floor space and working area.

Kawasaki's R series robots are designed with ease of use and longevity in mind. The motor has been moved and covered to protect it from harsh environments and workplace wear, and the new motor location on the base allows for enhanced protection and easier serviceability.
