Human-Collaborative Robots Yaskawa Motoman HC10, HC10DT and HC20DT

MOTOMAN HC10 and HC20DT are 6 axes human-collaborative robots with a payload of up to 20 kg
Common Characteristics

Operator’s safety is assured by a Power and Force Limit technology that stops the robot in case of contact with an operator.

The robot arm can be hand guided by an operator and robot positions and gripper operation can be registered via so called “Easy Teaching Switch Box” available in HC10DT and HC20DT models. These features offer time saving during the robot programming. The robots arm geometry was designed to avoid pinch points (finger).

The MOTOMAN HC10 and HC20DT robots can operate without additional protective measures like a safety fence, depending on the risk assessment. This saves space and costs. Its installation area is very flexible and therefore able to operate at different workplaces.

High safety

  • Contact force between operator and robot is limited to a safe level
  • Arm geometry designed to avoid pinch points (finger protection)
  • Safety standards – applications for Industrial robots: ISO 10218-1 (5.10.5 Power and Force limiting)
  • Complies to ISO TS 15066
  • Safety functions industrial robot controller: ISO 13849-1, PLd, Cat. 3

MOTOMAN YRC1000 industrial robot controller

The MOTOMAN YRC1000 is a compact, fast and flexible controller for MOTOMAN robots that combines high performance robot control in a small footprint cabinet with volume of 125 litres and a maximum weight of 70 kg. Besides the typical YASKAWA controller functionality, the YRC1000 includes additional functional improvements. Speed of the controller has been increased by lowering a ladder scanning time.
