It can be floor-, wall-, tilt- or ceiling-mounted. Brakes are included on all axes.
The long reach, slim-body design provides a broad working envelope and the ability to delve deeply into tight workspaces, and a wide wrist motion range eliminates interference. This, combined with exceptionally fast axis speeds and acceleration capabilities, improves application flexibility for a wide variety of industrial tasks such as assembly, dispensing, material handling, and machine tending.
Yaskawa’s space-efficient GP8L robot allows for minimum installation space, greatly reducing interference with peripheral devices. This enables the six-axis robot to be placed in close proximity to workpieces and other robots to create flexible, high-density layouts. Mounting for peripheral equipment is provided in multiple locations for easy integration.
Installation is quick and efficient. A single cable connects the manipulator to the controller, resulting in easy setup and reduced expenses for maintenance and spare parts inventory. Cables and air lines are routed through the robot base to upper arm to increase cable life, enhance safety and reduce teaching time. A cable installation tube facilitates fieldbus routing through the S-axis.
