Robot can touch its toes

Written by: Paul Fanning | Published:

Mitsubishi Electric has added a new model to its robot line-up, designed to work in confined spaces and perform intricate arm movements.

The RV-2SDB robot uses innovations in design and construction that allow the arm to reach items right next to its base. This means the space required for the working cell can be minimised, an important consideration in many manufacturing and assemble environments. It also allows the robot to perform a greater range of movements and task than earlier designs. Both advantages are likely to lead to significant costs savings for users.

Key to the RV-2SDB's agility is an arm design that even allows access to the area immediately surrounding the base, making the maximum use of the surrounding space. This is further enhanced by a 360 degree reach, meaning no parts of the surroundings are inaccessible.
