Yaskawa Adds to its Lineup of Direct-Teach, Plug-and-Play Cobots

February 17, 2022

yaskawa-motoman-cobot-HC20DTPYaskawa has enhanced its HC-Series lineup of collaborative robots (cobots) with the new six-axis HC10DTP and HC20DTP models. Hand-guided programming allows users to direct-teach points without a pendant, and an ISO standard tool flange and electrical connections facilitate a plug-and-play approach for easy deployment. Use the cobots for a variety of applications including assembly, machine tending, material handling, packaging and welding.  To enable humans to safely work with the cobots, power and force-limiting technology constantly monitors force to quickly and safely react to contact, and they units include advanced pinchless geometry. A thru-arm Category 6 Ethernet cable, I/O cable and dual air lines eliminate external utilities while offering fast, safe and easy setup of a variety of communication options for tooling.

Made of cast aluminum, both units are IP67-rated and equipped for use in damp or splash-prone environments. Model HC10DTP has a 10-kg payload capacity, 1379-mm maximum reach, 1200-mm effective reach and ±0.05-mm repeatability. The HC20DTP (shown in the photo) has a 20-kg payload capacity, 1900-mm maximum reach, 1700-mm effective reach and ±0.05-mm repeatability.
