Kawasaki Model 660 (Puma Style arms) in workcells with controllers $995/ea (reduced price for this list only) Wonderful as Az-El mounts for telescopes, general applications in machine shops for high accuracy servo-drive rotary tables, and on and on - Look on our website for photos.

Dear All, we have a few of the following left, FOB Stockton, CA:
Kawasaki Model 660 (same arm as PUMA 760) 10kg load

SPECIAL Robot in Workcell $995 INCLUDES:
1) Kawasaki 660 Arm

including panel,
six axis servo amplifiers and power supplies.
3) Workcell as shown in images

HISTORY: Manufactured 1990 and later, These Kawasaki / Puma units were functioning as disk (the platters in your computer disk drives - very light load) handlers from cassettes to texture spindles and back. When the plant shut, these became available. Unit timers show high hours, but each arm was rebuilt during its work history and is believed to be "functional", although we will not test or otherwise guarantee. We are told that these are easy and reasonable to maintain with far less work or tooling than for an Adept.

PRICE: All for only $995/set. Just a few left.

Cheers & Regards,
