June 24, 2020
Yaskawa's HC20XP has an IP67 rating and can handle a range of tasks, including machine tending, in-mold labeling and palletizing.

HC20XP This six-axis cobot from Yaskawa has a 66.9-inch reach and a maximum payload of 44 pounds. It can handle assembly, machine tending, in-mold labeling and decorating, material handling, packaging and palletizing tasks.

What’s new? An IP67 rating. According to Yaskawa, it is the first cobot with this rating for water resistance.

Benefits Ease of programming. Workers can guide the cobot by hand to teach it tasks, so pendant-based programming is not required. Its cast-aluminum construction makes it ideal for damp, splash-prone areas, and it is easy to wash for use in sanitary environments.
