An easy-to-use robot with an industrial pedigree, the HC10 collaborative robot (cobot) is an ideal balance of strength, flexibility and efficiency. It is easily deployed to operate in the same space as your workers, reducing the need for hard safety enclosures. Simplified programming and the low cost robotic arm put the benefits of collaborative automation within reach of any size manufacturing operation.
The Yaskawa HC10 is the new ideal co-worker with sensing technologies that allow it to safely interact with humans. Controlled by the YRC1000, the HC10 is programmed to respond accordingly to various situations in order to avoid putting a human in harm’s way. Follow this link to learn more about the YRC1000.
One of the key benefits of human–robot collaboration is the simplified process of instructing the robot to perform a specific task. Utilizing the EasyTeach feature of the YRC1000's INFORM programming language, the HC10 robot can be easily maneuvered to teach the required path and waypoints.
This mode is called lead-through-jogging, or hand guiding. The use of EasyTeach allows the user to remove the complexity usually associated with programming an industrial robot, increasing efficiency and accelerating deployment. The HC10 can also be programmed via the traditional method by jogging it using the teach pendant.
