Ideal for high-speed assembly and handling applications, the GP8 robot is fast and compact. Not only does this highly efficient robot offer the highest payload, fastest speed and highest wrist allowable moment in its class, but also it can be controlled by either the YRC1000 Controller or the YRC1000micro Controller. The YRC1000 utilizes the lightweight standard teach pendant or the easy-to-use touchscreen Smart Pendant, and the YRC1000micro is available for use with the standard teach pendant.

The GP-series robots offer improved acceleration/deceleration control for all robot positions resulting in overall improved productivity. The small footprint, slim arm design allows for minimum installation space and minimizes interference with peripheral devices. This enables the GP-series robots to be placed in close proximity to workpieces and other robots to create flexible, high-density layouts. Installation is quick and efficient. A single cable is all that is needed to connect the manipulator to the controller, resulting in easy setup and reduced expenses for maintenance and spare parts inventory.
