The ScorBot ER-4U is a versatile and reliable system for industrial robotics training and education. The ScorBot ER-4U robot arm can be mounted on a tabletop, pedestal or linear slidebase. The robot’s speed and repeatability make it highly suited for both stand-alone operations and integrated use in automated workcell applications such as robotic welding, machine vision, CNC machine tending and other FMS operations The robot is supported by ScorBase robotics programming and control software. Optional RoboCell 3D graphic software lets students design, create and control simulated industrial workcells, and provides dynamic simulation of the robot and workcell devices during position teaching and program execution. The robot is designed to enable observation of its working mechanical parts while ensuring a safe environment for students.
