Mitsubishi Electric Automation, Inc. has announced its newest family of robots: the RV-35/50/80FR series of robots are designed to allow for an expanded work envelope and increased opportunity through increased payload and reach compared to prior series.

The RV-34/50/80FR series has a maximum reach of 2,100 mm and a maximum payload of 80 kg, making them great solutions for palletizing and machine-tending applications. This series of robots upholds MitsubishiSource:  Mitsubishi Electric Automation, Inc.Source: Mitsubishi Electric Automation, Inc. Electric’s promise of compatibility by connecting to a wide range of factory automation equipment to seamlessly integrate robot functionality with IT systems. RV-35/50/80 is engineered to work seamlessly in manufacturing environments through a wide range of safety functions, including position and speed monitoring. In addition, pairing with Mitsubishi Electric’s MELFA Smart Plus card simplifies installation and programming.

“The RV-35/50/80FR series is going to be a game changer for Mitsubishi Electric.
