The Fabworx Solutions Fabhp-v for 150mm and 200mm Endura® and Centura® platforms is designed to dramatically improve reliability, contamination, repeatability/accuracy, throughput and droop.

The result is higher yield, greater productivity and a rapid return on investment (ROI). Robot speed can be dramatically increased with the Fabhp-v robot, often resulting in tool throughput improvements of 5-25%.

Elbow/Lower Arms

  • Precision-machined components and pressed-fit bearings create a tighter, stronger design that reduces bearing wear and eliminates droop.
  • Bearings are enclosed to prevent particle contamination.
  • Patented split lower-arm design automatically compensates for misalignment of the hub’s magnetic rings to eliminate premature bearing failure and ensure smooth operation.


  • Design eliminates any wrist preventive maintenance (PM) and wrist-related droop.
  • Patented interconnected stainless steel bands replace interlocking pivot gears with anti-backlash springs to eliminate side-to-side motion.
  • Ceramic bearings are used for long life and are enclosed to protect from process deposition and prevent particle contamination.
  • End effector leveling adjustments are performed at the wrist for greater alignment accuracy and faster setup/teach time.

Hub Bearings

  • Hybrid ceramic bearings with hardened 440 stainless steel races provide long life and reduce particle generation.
  • Bearing shields help retain lubricant to further reduce particles.

End Effector

Fabworx end effectors are available in stress-free 6061 bare aluminum, anodized aluminum, or thin-profile molybdenum for maximum clearance in the cassette. Fabworx will work hand-in-hand with the customer to select the appropriate end effector for the process type.
