The MH5S and MH5LS robots are now compatabile with the MLX100 Robot Gateway. These models are compact, powerful robots designed for small parts assembly, material handling and packaging. The MH5 models feature a new "slim arm" design that reduces potential interference between the robot tooling and upper arm.
