Fast automated production
SCARA robots are often used for the fast removal and movement of workpieces, smaller assembly applications such as screwing in screws, and for the precise dosing of liquids, adhesives and sealants.
IAI offers a wide range of models, from the low-cost entry model IXP to the latest IXA high-performance SCARA robot.
High-speed SCARA Robots: IXA Series
IAI recently introduced the new IXA SCARA robot series of high-performance robots. The series includes standard and high-speed types with arm lengths from 180 to 1,200 mm.
The new IXA SCARA robots offer better performance and functionality compard to previous types. With the free IXA simulation software, customers can check the SCARA movements without a real robot and measure the cycle times.
At a glance:
► Fast cycle times
► Low vibration, accurate positioning
► Equipped with a battery-less Absolute Encoder
► Simulation software available
Cost-effective IXP SCARA Robot series
By using stepper motors, the IXP series costs much less than conventional models. The permissible load is comparable thanks to the high-power drivers. All models are equipped with battery-free absolute encoders as standard.
IXP SCARA robots can be supplied with permanently mounted IAI electric grippers. These are simply controlled via the robot controller as an external axis. Up to 255 programs and 30,000 positions can be stored in the robot controller. Control can take place via discrete inputs and outputs as well as via field bus systems.
Cleanroom versions or with protection class IP65
Many SCARA robots are also available as standard for production in cleanrooms or as water- and dust-protected models with protection class IP65. This means that dust cannot penetrate and the robot is protected against water jets from any direction.
