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.
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.
