HC20XP Collaborative Robot


Easy-to-Clean Collaborative Robot with Hand-Guided Teaching

Ideal for a variety of tasks, the robust six-axis HC20XP collaborative robot provides precise hand-guided teaching for fast implementation of a robot system. Offering four modes of collaborative operation such as Power and Force Limiting (PFL) technology, the HC20XP meets established safety standards, enabling humans to work with or in close placement to robots. Depending on risk assessment, this cobot can operate without extra safety features, saving space and lowering cost.

A through-arm Category 6 cable facilitates a wide selection of communication options for tooling, and an IP67 rating and easy-to-clean surface enables use in sanitary environments. The HC20XP also includes NSF H1 food-grade grease for use in spaces where there is the possibility of incidental food contact.

The HC20XP is compatible with the YRC1000 and YRC1000micro robot controllers.
