Innovative design.

Here at fruitcore robotics, we rely on innovations.
This is why we developed an innovative drive concept for 6-axis robot HORST (depending on the design size) on the basis of four-bar linkages that allow high force transmission when the robot’s position requires it. Thanks to its unique kinematic structure, it achieves an optimum ratio of range and load capacity.

Frequently asked questions about the 6-axis robot.

The 6-axis robot is currently the most widely used jointed-arm robot with 6 rotating axes. Due to its properties and freedom of movement, the 6-axis robot is an all-purpose robot whose kinematic design allows it to easily navigate around any obstacles. It is equipped with three rotatory main axes, i.e. serial RRR kinematics, and can therefore be moved in three dimensions.
A 6-axis robot has a low interference volume, i.e. the robot itself does not take up a lot of space. The required floor space is very small as compared to the existing workspace.
Above all, this type of robot with up to six degrees of freedom offers a high level of flexibility, which allows the robot to execute highly complex sequences of movement. These properties make 6-axis robots all-purpose systems for assembly and handling tasks. They are used in almost all sectors.

At fruitcore robotics, we have developed 6-axis robot HORST whose innovative kinematic design allows it to combine the advantages of various types of robots. This way, HORST achieves an optimum ratio of range, load capacity, and repeat accuracy.

Due to their properties and large freedom of movement, 6-axis robots are all-purpose systems. This is why they are used in workpiece handling, workpiece testing, for coating and painting, for spot, track, and laser welding, palletizing, deburring, polishing, bonding, milling, for assembly work, feeding machine tools, testing, and quality assurance, for example.

Our 6-axis robot HORST is flexible and can be used for a wide range of applications. Thanks to our intuitive software horstFX, you don’t even need programming skills. You can find further details on our page Areas of application for industrial robots.

When purchasing a robot system, you should take into account that a 6-axis robot system consists of far more components than just the robot itself. The system includes components that were each developed for special applications, for example grippers and general components like feeding systems, clamping systems, sensors, measuring devices, and safety-relevant components. Each element of the robot system must be selected in accordance with the requirements for the application you wish to automate, adjusted if necessary, and implemented.

In addition, the technical feasibility and existing standards and circumstances must be considered.

Here at fruitcore robotics, we will prepare a free feasibility analysis for you. Get in touch now, and let us help you find your automation solution!

The 6-axis robot is considered to be an all-purpose robot, as it is flexible and can be used in all sectors and areas of application. In combination with our mobile robot base, our industrial robot HORST is also very flexible and can be used for any kind of application.
In addition, HORST’s intuitive software is convincing. You can create complex sequences in just a few minutes with horstFX. No programming skills required!
The integrated complete safety control horstCONTROL, in combination with horstFX, offers everything you need for quick and easy automation.

With its intuitive programming and unique cost–benefit ratio, HORST is your reliable partner for a simple and affordable introduction to automation.

6-axis robots are the most common robots in the industrial environment. There is a reason for that: After all, 6-axis robots, and our 6-axis robot HORST in particular, offer a variety of advantages:

  • High level of flexibility
  • Low interference volume
  • Ideal use of the workspace
  • Achievement of high load capacities
  • Consistent and high quality
  • Relief for the employees
  • Reduction of cycle times
  • Few cases of downtime
  • High degree of reusability

Our robot system HORST’s unique cost–benefit ratio is convincing. Among our three models, HORST600, HORST900, and HORST1400, there is a suitable model for every application.

The amount of maintenance a 6-axis robot requires refers to the type, duration, and frequency of the servicing measures to be carried out, such as maintenance, inspection, and servicing. Servicing also influences the likelihood of an unplanned machine failure. The costs of servicing vary depending on the robot manufacturer.

Thanks to its innovative design, robot system HORST requires very little maintenance. For example, all three support arms can be replaced in a few minutes and all components of our robot system are easily accessible and very easy to maintain.

Since an increasing number of companies are relying on automation technology, the area of application for 6-axis robots is expanding. Equipped with highly developed software and needs-oriented sensor systems, robot systems are used increasingly for sophisticated industrial production and manufacturing tasks. In many cases, the operation of a 6-axis robot is extremely complex. As a result, the demand for specialists who can program and operate robots is growing.

With our robot system HORST, you can operate robots without any programming skills. Using the graphical user interface of our horstFX software, users can set up and program the robot intuitively and with ease in just a few minutes.
Our software also makes actuating external machines with common industry interfaces a straightforward task.

HORST is not only affordable but also really worth its price.
