The extended-reach GP70L robot offers a fast and powerful performance for a variety of applications. A long reach, speed, and a robust payload capacity make this model well-suited for logistic processes, including palletizing and depalletizing. Applications for dispensing, material handling, press tending, and machine tending, such as loading and unloading parts from a CNC machine, are also supported.

Highly reliable, the six-axis GP70L features a 2,732mm horizontal reach, 4,715mm vertical reach, and 0.05mm repeatability. A 70kg payload enables a wide range of tooling and sensors to fulfill diverse application requirements.

High moment of inertia ratings enable large and heavy payloads to be handled, while fast axis speeds and acceleration capabilities reduce cycle time for increased production output. A reduced interference design allows access to parts in tight spots and facilitates proximity placement of robots for high-density workcells. A wide wrist motion range eliminates potential interference with fixtures for improved application flexibility.

A single cable connects the manipulator to the controller, resulting in easy setup and reduced expense for maintenance and spare parts inventory. A cable installation tube facilitates fieldbus routing through the S-axis.

The GP70L can be floor-mounted and has an IP67-rated wrist and an IP54 body standard. It’s controlled by the high-performance YRC1000 controller that is built to a global standard and does not require a transformer for input voltages ranging from 380VAC to 480VAC. With a compact cabinet (598mm x 490mm x 427mm), the YRC1000 uses a lightweight teach pendant with intuitive programming.
