Scary for a SCARA?

The SCARA robot (Selective Compliant Assembly Robot Arm) was actually inducted into the Robot Hall of Fame in 2006 (see: www.robothalloffame.org/06inductees/scara.html). According to that hall, the “claim to fame” for the SCARA is that it “revolutionized small electronics assembly.” Fanuc Robotics America (www.fanucrobotics.com) has a new robot for small part assembly applications.

According to that hall, the “claim to fame” for the SCARA is that it “revolutionized small electronics assembly.” Fanuc Robotics America (www.fanucrobotics.com) has a new robot for small part assembly applications. For tasks like electronics assembly. It’s officially designated the LR Mate 200iC/5H. It is unofficially called the “SCARA Eliminator.” The robot has a 704-mm reach, ±0.02-mm repeatability, and a 5-kg load capacity. There is an integrated force sensor that facilitates 3D assembly with six degrees of freedom. The robot is also ready for vision, requiring only a camera and a cable, no additional processing hardware. It can be mounted on the floor, on a tabletop, inside a machine, angled or inverted.
