Omron brings simplicity and versatility to industrial robots

More than 70 models are featured in the new range of SCARA robots launched by Omron. Ideally suited to pick-and-place, materials handling and assembly applications, the new SCARA robots are an important addition to Omron’s product portfolio and will further extend the company’s capabilities for providing versatile, efficient and cost-effective integrated automation solutions.



The new range of robots is available in versions with maximum payload capacity from 1 kg up to 50 kg, and with arm reach from 120 mm to 1,200 mm.

Special models for critical environments
In addition to general-purpose models, the range features special versions optimised for use in critical environments in the food, pharmaceutical and other sectors. These include dust and drip-proof types with IP65 ingress protection ratings and models for C10 clean room applications. The scope of the range is further extended by the inclusion of wall- and ceiling-mounted models.

High reliability and minimum maintenance
Key features of the new robots are high reliability and minimal maintenance requirements. XG-series models in particular, which are available with payload capacities from 1 kg to 20 kg, incorporate new technology that completely eliminates drive belts and the need to mount electrical and electronic components on moving parts of the robot. This allows them to consistently deliver exceptional levels of performance and reliability in even the most demanding of applications.

Easy programming

The new SCARA robots are easy to program using convenient software tools and a teaching pendant. To further reduce programming time, the software tools include an extensive set of function libraries and ready-to-use program modules. As an aid to easy integration, option cards are available to allow connection to Ethernet, Profibus and DeviceNet networks.
