MOTOMAN’S dual-arm robots, DA20, DIA10 and SDA10, are reportedly show distinct humanoid qualities.

According to the company, the robots feature compact actuators that combine the motor, encoder, reducer, and brake, which can be stacked. The use of the actuators for arms reportedly provides a slim profile that is said to be approximately near to the shape of a human arm.

The latest version of the IA10, the SIA10, is compact in size and able to snake into small places. It caters for deep-throated spot welding guns and can give way to smaller guns on these robots.
 

he SIA20 is a seven-axis robot that has a minimal footprint and the ability to snake into locations that conventional articulated arms might be challenged to reach.
