24-kg payload.

298_yaskawa_MH24Yaskawa Motoman’s MH24 six-axis IP67/IP54-rated robot makes easy work of dispensing, material handling, machine tending and packaging applications thanks to a new curved upper arm that extends its horizontal reach to 1,730 mm.

Through-arm cable routing boosts cable life and reduces snagging or interference. A 50-mm through-hole in the upper arm provides ample space to minimize wear and maximize cable life.

The ANSI/RIA R15.06-2012, ISO and CSA-certified robot has a 24-kg payload with a large work envelope that has ample space for tool storage or maintenance. Higher moment of inertia ratings over previous “payload class” models enables it to carry larger and heavier payloads. There are brakes on all axes and the robot is floor- or wall-mountable.

A small interference radius decreases floor space requirements and a mounting surface on the back of the upper arm for junction boxes or pneumatics provides a lower profile and avoids interference within the cell.

Fast axis speeds, acceleration and deceleration reduce cycle times and increase production output thanks to Sigma-5 motors and Advanced Robot Motion (ARM).

The DX200 controller handles multiple tasks and controls up to eight robots (72 axes).

An enhanced Functional Safety Unit provides control-reliable zone and tool position monitoring, standstill monitoring and speed limiting.

Yaskawa Motoman is a manufacturer of industrial robotics and automation technologies based in Miamisburg, Ohio.
