JMP has introduced the new FS03 from Kawasaki Robots. The FS03 is a compact multi-purpose robot designed as a portable model at the smaller end of the range.
Despite its size, the Kawasaki robot is an advanced 6-axis arm and boasts the high speed in its class, being some three times fast than the previous FS02 model with a high payload of 3kg.
Weighing an easy-to-handle 20kg and with a footprint of only 17 x 21.5cm, the FS03 in conjunction with its ultra-compact D 70 Controller will operate from a single phase 240 volt supply giving it extra flexibility in use.
Three main axes and three wrist axes deliver 6-axis performance and all offer good high speed operation coupled with high reliability and high precision to ensure that they can withstand stringent operating conditions required of industrial robots.
Achieving an industry standard cycle test of typically 0.4 - <0.5 sec, the robot can be stationed in operating positions including floor, wall or ceiling mount making it suitable for many demanding tasks such as assembly, handling and inspection of small components. FS03v is also suitable for research and educational applications.
Constructed to be compatible with Class 10 clean room operation and IP67 wash-down variants, the robot has already found success in the assembly of small delicate parts in the electronics industry, handling pharmaceutical products plus fast and accurate machine tool loading.
JMP plans to utilise these in many JMP applications especially for case packing and packaging applications.
