Wrist Units with logoIdeal for reducing costs when 6-axis robot is not necessary

IAI’s Unique WU Series Wrist Unit design makes it light weight and compact in size.  
Equipped with a battery-less absolute encoder as standard, the WU Series is a low cost alternative, compared to 6-axis articulated robots making it ideal for reducing the cost of equipment.

Diagonal approaches and tip swiveling can now be performed with minimum required axis configuration which until now required a vertically articulated robot.
