March 8, 2018 — The six-axis MPX1150 and MPX2600 robots have been added to Yaskawa Motoman’s paint robot line. These models create finishes for a variety of painting and dispensing applications.
Designed for painting smaller components, the MPX1150 robot has a straight wrist with 5 kg payload capacity. It is suited for mounting a variety of spray guns and small bells. An optional location (right, left or bottom) for manipulator cable connection reduces interference with walls. The MPX1150 robot features a 727 mm horizontal reach, 1,290 mm vertical reach and ±0.02 mm repeatability.
Designed for automotive components and other industrial applications, the MPX2600 robot features an upper arm equipped with mounting points to optimize hose routing. Its 15 kg wrist payload allows for mounting a variety of spray guns and large bells, while the large 70 mm hollow wrist diameter helps prevent paint and air tube interference. The MPX2600 robot features a 2,000 mm horizontal reach, 3,643 mm vertical reach and ±0.2 mm repeatability.
The MPX1150 and MPX2600 robots can be installed close to workpieces for efficient use of floorspace. Each robot can be floor-, wall- or ceiling-mounted for layout flexibility.
The MPX1150 robot, MPX2600 robot and DX200-FM controller feature Factory Mutual (FM) approval for use in Class I, Division 1 hazardous environments. An intrinsically safe pendant is available as an option.
The DX200-FM controller includes application-specific software for paint applications and coordinates operation of the robot and painting devices, including spray gun, color changer and gear pump. The controller supports standard networks (EtherNet, EtherNet IP, CC-Link and DeviceNet), enabling connection to paint equipment controllers and production line controllers.
The DX200-FM is available with Category 3 Performance Level d (PLd) Functional Safety Unit (FSU), which supports safety-rated speed control, safety-rated soft axis and space limiting, and safety-rated monitor stop.
