The GP4 is said to offer a slim, compact design and a wide work area for its size, making it a viable alternative to SCARA-style robots. It has a 1008-mm vertical reach, 550-mm horizontal reach and ±0.01 mm repeatability. It also boasts an IP67 rating (waterproof and dust-proof) and easy-to-clean surface.
