The Motoman Robotics division of Yaskawa America Inc. has come up with a delta style Motoman MPP3 robot. The strong and fast MH-80 robot is very flexible and can many uses in material handling applications such as packaging, cartoning and kitting.
The robot can work at truly high speeds of 150 cycles per minute which is indeed useful for those business owners who want to speed up their inventory. The three armed robot is on a direct driven rotary axis that can improve its reliability and design. The robot needs a very small installation area. The MH80 features an 80 kg payload, 2,061 mm horizontal reach, 3,578 mm vertical reach and ±0.07 mm repeatability.
Dean Elkins, senior general sales manager, Motoman Robotics, said in a press release that the release of the MPP3 robot rounds out their comprehensive product offering in the packaging market. Their customers benefit from highly reliable manipulators and a common programming language in picking, packaging and palletizing applications.
Its wide work envelope and small interference zones allow the MH80 to be placed in close proximity to workpieces and equipment, reducing floorspace requirements. The robots have brakes on all axes and can be floor-, wall- or ceiling-mounted for layout flexibility.
Yaskawa has provided automation products and solutions for virtually every industry and robotic application; including arc welding, assembly, coating, dispensing, material handling, material cutting, material removal, packaging, palletizing and spot welding.
