Key to its performance is the robot’s ability to operate at high speeds while handling heavy loads, maintaining precise positioning with accuracies up to ±0.04 mm. This capability ensures consistent and reliable operation even in demanding production environments.

For enhanced safety, the MELFA RV-12CRL can be equipped with MELFA SafePlus technology, utilizing sensors like light curtains to detect human presence and adjust speed, torque, and reach accordingly. This allows the robot to operate collaboratively without the need for safety cages, ideal for flexible manufacturing setups.

The robot’s design prioritizes longevity and cost-efficiency, featuring next-generation servo motors with battery-less encoders that eliminate the need for battery replacements or backups. This innovative design minimizes maintenance costs and downtime, ultimately reducing the total cost of ownership.

Barry Weller, the product manager of mechatronics at Mitsubishi Electric Automation Systems UK, expressed enthusiasm for the MELFA RV-12CRL, highlighting its innovative features and performance that offer an efficient and cost-effective solution for handling large and heavy items in repetitive operations. The launch of this new addition underscores Mitsubishi Electric’s commitment to delivering cutting-edge robotic solutions tailored to meet industrial demands.
