Humanoid Dual Arm Industrial Robot NEXTAGE


1. Low power actuators for safety

All 15 axes consist of low-power actuators with less than 80W.

2. Flexible task by Image Recognition

Recognition of the position in 3 dimensions by "Head Camera"

The stereo camera at the head can measure distance in 3 dimensions and acknowledge the surrounding environment, tools and work pieces with high accuracy.

Recognition of the shape of work piece by "Hand Camera"

Camera on the arm obtains detailed two dimensional position data during tasks.

3. Versatile Applications

With the combination of end effector and peripheral equipment, respond to various customer needs.

4. Easy Installation

NEXTAGE can be easily moved around and installed from its compact design and with the casters at the bottom of pedestal.

5. Easy and Simple Teaching

OPERATION: Jog-Based Robot Operation Screen
Special programing is not required. Teaching points can be designated by jog-based “INCHING” operation on the GUI.

TEACHING: Action Flow Screen
The NxProduction software, installed in NEXTAGE as a standard can be used to teach and manage the operation. Its GUI displays a “WORKFLOW” format which visualizes the production process.
