Omron introduced a line of SCARA robots named the i4, designed to save space during installation. The line utilizes communication through EtherCAT, enabling advanced assembly and ensures quality control with vision integration. The i4 visualizes working data and supervises its status with built-in signals for preventive maintenance, allowing users to mitigate unplanned downtime. In spring 2019, Omron will introduce the first three models: the i4-650, i4-750 and i4-850, which have an arm reach of 650mm, 750mm and 850mm, respectively. The payload can hold up to 15kg. Customers also have a choice of two different Z-axis strokes for each robot.
