What does SCARA mean and what makes this robot type special?
SCARA is an acronym and stands for Selective Compliance Articulated Robot Arm, it is an industrial robot with 4 axes. It consists of a serial mechanism with rotational joints in the first two axes. The two remaining axes are combined and allow both rotation and linear movement in Z-axis. The SCARA works much faster compared to other 6-axis robots and at the same time the programming of the arm is very simple.
