The VT6L All-in-One 6-Axis robot, a new entry level offering 9kg payload and 900mm reach, will also be on display. With groundbreaking technology at an ultra-low cost of $13,900, the VT6L is ideal for simple applications such as machine-tool and injection molding load/unload, pick-and-place, dispensing and simple assembly projects. A feature-packed performer, it includes a built-in controller, plus simplified cabling with a hollow end-of-arm design ? all at a remarkably low cost, in a compact, SlimLine structure.
The Synthis T3 and T6 All-in-One SCARA Robots will also be on display. These All-in-One solutions offer the perfect way to automate factories without wasting time or money on expensive, complex, slide-based solutions. Available at the low price of $7,495 and $9,495 respectively, these innovative alternatives install in minutes and virtually eliminate any space-constraint issues. They feature the All-in-One design with built-in controller (conveniently housed in the robot base) and power for end-of-arm tooling.
