Yaskawa Adds 30 kg Payload HC30PL Collaborative Palletizing Robot
The new HC30PL cobot enables safe, efficient fenceless palletizing, and can also be deployed in select handling, packaging and logistical applications of demanding production environments.
By: Yaskawa Motoman
Joining Yaskawa's proven HC-series line of collaborative robots, the HC30PL meets established safety standards to enable safe operation with, or in close proximity to human workers. Power and Force Limiting (PFL) technology constantly monitors force to quickly and safely react to contact, and advanced pinchless geometry provides optimal safety.
Hand-guided programming allows users to direct teach points without a pendant for quick implementation of the robot system, and a plug and play tool flange based on EN ISO-9409-1-80-
Built with cast aluminum for industrial durability, the HC30PL features an IP67 rating to reliably operate in damp or splash-prone environments. An easy-to-clean surface allows utilization in sanitary settings where wipe or wash is required. NSF H1 certified food-grade grease is included as standard, enabling use in production facilities where there is the possibility of incidental food contact.
Meeting established safety standards, the HC30PL offers four modes of collaborative operation and can easily shift between collaborative speed in PFL mode or full speed in industrial mode, optimizing cycle times based on risk assessment and process requirements.
Installation is quick and efficient. A single cable is all that is needed to connect the manipulator to the controller, resulting in easy setup and reduced expenses for maintenance and spare parts inventory.
When using the standard teach pendant, fast and easy creation of palletizing patterns for virtually any mix of SKUs can be accomplished offline using Yaskawa's PalletSolver® software. Operators using Smart Pendant V2.2 or newer can quickly handle repetitive patterns for common tasks with the Smart Pattern extension.
