August 21, 2017 — The Motoman GP25 robot is a robot that is designed for assembly, dispensing, handling, material removal and packaging applications. All axis speeds have been increased. This six-axis model is the fourth in the GP-series line of robots.
The arm design and broad working envelope allow operation in wider work areas with the ability to delve into the workspace. The GP25 robot offers minimum acceleration/deceleration times for all robot positions.
The GP25 features an IP67-rated wrist and an IP54 body. An XP (eXtra Protection) package that increases the body protection rating to IP65 is available. This model offers a 25 kg payload capacity, 1,730 mm horizontal reach and 3,089 mm vertical reach. It can be floor-, ceiling- or wall-mounted.
GP-series robots are controlled by Yaskawa’s new high-performance YRC1000 controller that is built to a global standard and does not require a transformer for input voltages ranging from 380VAC to 480VAC.
The YRC1000 measures 598 W x 490 H x 427 D mm resulting in reduced space requirements. Its I/O communication speed is improved and a single controller-to-robot cable is designed to improve cable reliability. The improved programming pendant design features enhanced ergonomics and lighter weight.
