Low payload robot (5 kg) for arc and laser welding, packaging and assembly. Organically formed, high-strength aluminum cast components give the robot a dynamic appearance and visually emphasize the enormous performance capability of the machine. From a mechanical point of view, they also ensure high torsional and bending stiffness – important for precise, reliable operation. Smooth transitions between structural shapes also have a positive effect on mechanical force transmission and make the robot swift and agile. There is no decorative external styling trim – each component has a technical function. Service life of 15 years.
