These models offer payloads ranging from 4 kg (8.8 lb) to a staggering 20 kg (44 lb), with the capability to reach up to one meter (39.4 inches). Known for its unmatched speed and precision, this series is powered by the advanced GYROPLUS vibration reduction technology, ensuring rapid production speeds and a seamless motion control experience.
For those eager to witness the GX-B Series in action, the GX10B model will make its public debut at The Assembly Show in Rosemont, Illinois from Oct. 24-26.
The Heart of the Robot: RC700E Controller
The GX-B Series is backed by the prowess of the RC700E robot controller, a game-changer in the realm of automation. This controller not only boosts productivity but, with appropriate risk assessments, can also pave the way for harmonious interactions between humans and robots without the need for safety barriers. Key features include intelligent servo drives with GYROPLUS technology, SafeSense technology for enhanced safety measures, and the ability to run a multitude of tasks simultaneously.
Moreover, the RC700E controller offers unmatched flexibility. It integrates both PC-based controls and a real-time engine, optimizing operations and significantly reducing the potential need for physical safety barriers. This translates to both operational cost and footprint reductions for businesses.
