OMRON aims for ease of use

In addition to high speed and precision, SCARA robots need to be easy to use. Thus, major market players have invested a huge amount of money in launching such robots. For instance, Japan-based OMRON has launched the i4H, an industrial SCARA robot for lightweight operations.

The new robot allows customers to develop highly productive equipment by controlling and integrating end effectors and other peripheral devices at a high speed and high precision.

Moreover, the robot can handle a payload of up to 15 kg (33 lb.), and the end effector can be mounted, which OMRON said allows for efficient transportation and assembly processes.
