Yaskawa Motoman HC30PL industrial robot

Specifically designed with palletizing in mind, the robust six-axis HC30PL human-collaborative robot with direct teach capability facilitates safe and efficient fenceless production in demanding environments. Part of the HC-series line, the HC30PL features a 30 kg payload capacity, a 1,700 maximum reach, and a plug and play tool flange based on EN ISO 9409-1 to facilitate select handling and packaging applications. Power and Force Limiting (PFL) technology constantly monitors force to enable safe human-robot interaction, and the cobot can easily shift between collaborative speed in PFL mode or full speed in industrial mode (based on risk assessment and process requirements) as production demands change.

A thru-arm Category 6 cable provides a wide selection of communication options for tooling, and an IP67 rating and easy-to-clean surface facilitate use in sanitary settings. The HC30PL also includes NSF H1 food-grade grease for use in facilities where there is the possibility of incidental food contact.

The HC30PL is controlled by the YRC1000 controller and is compatible with either the standard teach pendant or innovative Smart Pendant. The HC30PL can also be used with the extremely compact YRC1000micro controller.

Improved Utilities

Updated thru-arm utilities (Air + Ethernet + I/O) provide a variety of options and simplify EOAT install. We also aligned our I/O connector to the same M8 A-coded standard that is used throughout the industry.


Leading Connectivity

ISO Standard Tool Flange is now offered on the HC10DTP, HC20DTP and HC30PL, allowing direct installation of most common industrial end of arm tooling. We also incorporated an additional dowel hole so the tool can be rotated if desired!

Application Optimization

Payload and motion ranges have been tuned for palletizing — resulting in a class leading payload and reach.

Safety inspection

Safety Guidance

Cobots have built-in safety features but a risk assessment is necessary to ensure that the robot, application and humans interact safely.
