Hanwha Precision Machinery is a Korean company that has been making Chip Mounters, Screen Printers, accessories and Semiconductor equipment since 1989. Now they also make cobots. The best-known is the HCR-5, but they also make an HCR-3 and HCR-12.
The reason for this additional product line is that they see that Industry 4.0, smart factory and other recent trends in factory automation entail different challenges. There is an increasing need for a simpler, more flexible and safer production environment with:
quality improvement through process automation,
reduction of operational costs through easily manoeuvrable equipment,
flexible switching between processes,
production of small series,
improving the working environment for employees exposed to pollution and hazardous machinery.
Based on their many years of technical know-how, Hanwha Precision Machinery has rolled out a collaborative robot to help all their customers in every industry with ease. Responding to customers' interest in improving their production environment, they continue to work towards a more comfortable and secure future by providing excellent products and first-class services.
That is why we use Hanwha cobots in our projects.
Programming HCR cobots
The HCR series cobots use a supplied teach pendant for programming. The user interface is very user-friendly because it uses many icons and offers a clear overview per screen.
Emergency stop feature
The emergency stop of the HCR cobots has a nice feature: the cobot can be moved for a few seconds when the robot arm hits its safety stop. This makes these cobots very suitable for direct collaboration, because there is no risk of crushing.
