Han’s Robot takes the payload game to the next level with launch of S30

Before Han's Robot's latest innovation, most of China's cobot models ranged between 1kg to 20kg in payload.

Han’s Robot (大族机器人), one of the leading domestic cobot manufacturers, has debuted a new, high-payload product, the S30.

The robot has a payload of 30kg, making it the model with the largest ever payload within the cobot product family under Han’s Robot.

The Shenzhen-headquartered industrial firm also claimed that the S30 marks a milestone as it is the “first” known cobot arm that has a payload of 30kg.

“The most notable thing about the S30 is its 30kg payload, enabling it to handle all applications demanding a large payload, such as food, daily chemical, warehouse storage, palletizing and material transferring,” a unnamed manager with Han’s Robot was quoted as saying in media reports.

“Other than that, the S30 has exceptional performance in its core parts, arm length and operational stability.”

Specifically, the S30 has a payload-weight ratio of 1:3, a maximum working radius of 1,800mm and a 360-degree range of motion.

Equipped with an end effector/tool, the cobot arm maxes out at an operational speed of 3 meters per second.

To cope with external disruptions, Han’s Robot installs self-built high-performance motors across the S30, making it tolerant of shocks 2.5x its payload.

Pursuit of higher-payload cobots

When fully loaded, the model also supports higher dynamical precision and visualized programming.

The cobot is designed to palletize 13 bins or boxes per minute, meaning it is well placed to carry out tasks in food processing, logistics, warehouse, pharmaceutical, chemical and automaking, among other industries.

Before Han’s Robot’s latest innovation, most of China’s cobot models ranged between 1kg to 20kg in payload.

But as market demand continues to evolve, domestic manufacturers such as Siasun (新松), Dobot (越疆), JAKA (节卡机器人), and Elite Robots (艾特利机器人) have been scaling the ladder and rolled out products with larger payloads.
