Key Benefits

Optimize your application with plug-and-work industrial robots


Minimize Footprint

The Meca500 is smaller than any industrial robot arm. Featuring an embedded controller, it is also unbelievably compact.  This allows for automation in small and confined spaces

Reduce Tolerances

Built with precision-machined aluminum and zero-backlash gearboxes, the Meca500 is the world’s most precise six-axis robot. It boasts a repeatability of 5 μm.

Gain Flexibility

The robot is easy to mount in any orientation. It automatically compensates for gravity, without requiring any software adjustments. This added flexibility enables easy integration in a wide variety of settings.

Facilitate Integration

The Meca500 is a plug‑and‑work automation component, easy to interface with any computer or PLC. Easily operate the robot using any programming language you prefer.

Industrial Robotic Automation Made Easy

Mecademic’s goal is to facilitate the use and accessibility of industrial robotic automation in a wide range of industries and applications. Learn how to improve flexibility and throughput while minimizing costs with our industrial robot arms.

Specifications

When fully extended, the length of the small industrial robot arm is about 330 mm.

Reach: 260 mm (see diagram below)

Payload: 0.5 kg rated (max. 1 kg)

Weight: 4.5 kg

Mounting: any orientation

Repeatability: 0.005mm

The Meca500’s controller is embedded in its palm-sized base. There is no bulky controller cabinet, no teach pendant, and no messy cables. With its tiny footprint, the Meca500 is ideal for small, confined spaces.

he Meca500 comes with an external 24V power supply that has an embedded safety module with an E-Stop and safety I/O interface. The power supply can be connected to any standard electrical outlet.

Supply voltage: 90-264VAC, 50-60 Hz, single phase

Safety module: Cat. 3 / PL d

Simply connect the robot to any computer or PLC via the Ethernet cable provided, and use a programming language of your choice (Java, C#, Python, etc.). The robot can also be controlled by most PLCs using either Ladder or Structured Text.

Users may communicate with the robot via EtherCAT, ensuring guaranteed response times. Alternatively, users may send Mecademic's proprietary commands to the robot arm (as parsed strings) over TCP/IP. The commands are typical robot instructions such as MoveLin(x,y,z,α,β,γ). Similarly, the robot's controller sends back strings with various types of feedback.

The robot’s controller features an intuitive web interface for operation. It can be accessed via any web browser.

Communication protocols: TCP/IP, EtherCAT, Ethernet/IP
