STEP (新时达, 002527.SZ), a Shanghai-based manufacturer of automated industrial equipment and robotics, recently made headlines with the launch of a brand new series of large-payload material handling robots.
The company released the series on May 26, featuring a payload of 175kg and 220kg, which are among the highest of domestic peers.
The robots, named SR175/2700, SR175/3200 and SR220/2700, vary in their maximum working radius, at 2,700mm and 3,200mm, respectively.
Other features include a position repeatability of ±0.1 mm, a sturdy robo-wrist, a high payload, strong torque, high-inertia loads, among others.
Notably, the robo-wrist has received an upgrade compared to its predecessors, to be labeled as IP67 dust-resistant and water-proof.
Meanwhile, a more extended arm length gives the new STEP robots the capability to handle multiple application scenarios.
Affixed to the factory floor, the new STEP industrial robots also come with a compact look and a slimmer pedestal, saving space surrounding production lines.
They are mainly deployed to industries such as lithium-ion battery, automotive manufacturing, auto parts, metal processing and chemical building materials.
Founded in 1995, STEP focuses on the production of servo motor, frequency converter, robotics and industrial controllers. It supplies to 110 countries and regions across the world, with an annual capacity of 10,000 industrial robots.
