SCARA Robot (4-axis Robot) Overview

The term SCARA is an acronym that stands for Selective Compliant Assembly Robot Arm. The SCARA robot is based on a 4-axis design. It is ideal for high-speed assembly, kitting, packaging, and other material-handling applications.

Adept's high speed SCARA robot (4-axis robot) innovations have lead the industry for over twenty-five years. In 1984, Adept introduced the AdeptOne SCARA robot, the world's first direct-drive robot. The AdeptOne SCARA robot changed the face of robotics with its innovative, cutting-edge design.

Adept's high speed SCARA robot innovations continue today with the eCobra 600 and eCobra 800 SCARA robot, embedding all electronics and motion controls into the robot arm, maximizing valuable floor space and simplifying installation. The Cobra s600 SCARA robot and Cobra s800 SCARA robot take advantage of the extended application capabilities offered by an external SmartController for multi robot control and increased I/O capabilities. And, the Cobra s800 inverted SCARA robot provides the same high speed SCARA robot work envelope and payload in an inverted (ceiling mount) configuration.

Adept's smallest SCARA robot offering, the Cobra s350 SCARA robot, provides Cobra SCARA robot (4-axis robot) high speed and performance in a smaller motion envelope.
