Yaskawa Motoman launches MPX1400 robot
The six-axis MPX1400 robot has been added to Yaskawa Motoman’s MPX-series paint robot line.
The MPX1400 robot is ideal for home appliances and automotive parts, including instrument panels and headlamp assemblies. A straight wrist with a five-kilogram payload capacity enables the mounting of a variety of spray guns and small bells, and a small footprint slim-arm design allows for minimum installation space. The MPX1400 robot features a 1,256 millimetres horizontal reach, 1,852 vertical reach and a ±0.14 mm repeatability.
This model offers a reduced interference work envelope and can be installed close to workpieces for efficient use of floorspace. It can be floor-, wall- or ceiling-mounted for layout flexibility.
The MPX1400 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, colour 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.
