Yaskawa Motoman announces  EduCart workcell for education, workforce development, and Industry 4.0 applications

November 22, 2019 — Developed for use in classrooms, robotics labs and robotics training centers, the pre-engineered EduCart workcell for education, workforce development, industrial robotics certification programs and Industry 4.0 applications features a fenceless design and six-axis industrial robot.

The extruded aluminum cart is portable and features fold-in windows and a fold-up tabletop for transportation through a standard 36” doorway. The platform then expands to provide an increased work envelope for training. The EduCart platform includes a fully integrated suite of industrial grade academic tools for teaching a variety of real-world applications.

Featuring Yaskawa’s GP8 robot and YRC1000 micro controller, the EduCart is powered through a standard 110 VAC outlet. The YRC1000 standard pendant provides an easy-to-use graphical interface for programming, I/O control and monitoring. A versatile Schunk gripper package with 3D printed fingers and a robust control interface is included.

Offering 270 degrees of unobstructed coverage, an integrated laser scanner establishes a safe working zone, while a plexiglass guard offers additional safety from the rear. Robot play speed is limited to 25% for enhanced student safety.

A dry-erase table top offers a marking surface, and a replaceable magnetic teaching mat provides virtually unlimited curriculum options, including palletizing and path following. Source files to create customized mats are included.
