Industrial robots are increasingly being used for tasks in the growing logistics and e-commerce market. For picking unsorted goods (piece picking, reaching into boxes), in conjunction with intelligent image processing systems, slim robot kinematics optimised for speed are required with long arm length and very narrow wrists in order to be able to reach sufficiently deep into containers. The GP8L was developed and optimised for this purpose.
The universal and flexible 6-axle GP8L offers enormous maneuvrability, a small footprint and a long reach of 1,636 mm. The newly designed model featuring a sufficient payload of 8 kg can be used wherever classic industrial robot manipulators such as the Motoman GP7 or GP12 would either be too short-armed or too bulky.
