PowerScara Offers High Performance at an Attractive Price
Bosch Rexroth will display its PowerScara at the Assembly Technology Expo in the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, IL, Booth #1605 & 1611 September 28 - 30, 2004
The new Rexroth PowerScara sets itself apart with space-saving drive and control technology. The high-performance swivel-arm robot can be employed even in the tightest spaces, such as those found in electronics manufacturing.
Small production cells which previously required extremely complex handling solutions can now benefit from the advantages of new, cost-effective Rexroth robot technology. Incorporating innovative drive and safety technology, the Rexroth PowerScara needs very little space. Thanks to intelligent integration and streamlined numbers of parts, users can now save up to 85 percent of the typical SCARA space requirements, with substantial space savings resulting from need for only 1U in the control cabinet for the rho4.0 robot and handling control. This cost-reducing PowerScara design requires less cabling to connect the robot and control components, resulting in easy installation and fast start-ups. Plus, attractive pricing from Rexroth puts the PowerScara in reach for both small and large manufacturers.
