With a history dating back to the mid-1980s, Kawasaki Robotics has continued to refine its general-purpose robot arms over time, routinely producing robots with wider working ranges, faster cycle times, longer reach, and increased torque. Their latest model, the RS013N, is no exception.
It's the next generation of Kawasaki's R series. The RS013N builds on the momentum started by the RS007N/L models in 2017 by offering a 13 kg payload capacity, small footprint and flexible, IP67-classified design, ideal for practically any general application for any industry.
Speed & Flexibility
The new robot's design includes a new arm structure and lighter main unit, which enables high speeds and a large working area. Its 1,460 mm reach is the largest in its class, allowing for installation flexibility and use in a wider variety of applications. The RS013N robot's speed results in reduced cycle times and increased productivity.
In addition to its expanded work area, the robot's wiring and installation options contribute to its overall flexibility. The robot's internal Ethernet wiring enables easy connection to a vision system or other peripheral devices, and its floor, ceiling and wall mount options provide installation flexibility for any layout.
Kawasaki's next generation R series robots (RS007N/L and RS013N) also have reduced interference zones around the robot base, which allows the user to maximize their floor space and working area.
