Mitsubishi Electric launches 'cost-effective' industrial robot

Mitsubishi Electric Automation has launched its RV-8CRL industrial robot, saying it offers “a high-quality solution at a lower price point, while not sacrificing on performance”.

Due to its smaller base size, expanded effective working area and compatibility with safety intelligence components, RV-8CRL is said to be versatile in its possible applications, including pick-and-place, inspection and general assembly.

The RV-8CRL is designed for original equipment manufacturers and end users with a focus on easy implementation, robust safety options and a reduction in downtime and maintenance.

The robot’s internal wiring and piping makes the robot easier to install, while its IP65 rating makes it dust-tight and protected against water projected from a nozzle, widening application suitability.

The RV-8CRL also features auxiliary components for safety, such as MELFA Safe Plus. This component, using additional sensors, will reduce speed and limit the range of robots up to a full stop when people or objects are detected in close proximity to the robot.

In addition, RV-8CRL’s battery-free internal encoders remove the need for battery backup, allowing it to maintain the same settings without the battery.

“We are excited to introduce the RV-8CRL to the industrial robot marketplace,” said Scott Strache, product manager at Mitsubishi Electric Automation. “It features quality, performance and compatibility wrapped into a package that reduces maintenance and operating costs, all while backed by a three-year, on-site warranty.”
