Dear Friends, Can any one tell me what is the cost difference between 6 axis robot e.g. 5 kg pay load and scara robot. I can do my application with scara robot but need to decide if there is any major cost difference.
Scara robots when going head to head with a 6 axis (reach/payload) should be significantly less than a 6 axis robot. The scara robots of today are generally much faster too. The main draw-back is if you need a the articulation of 6 axis then a 4-axis Scara can not compete. If you are going for reach I have seen Scaras mounted on a 5th axis (slide) and still provide interpolated motion.
