Designed with high-stability and accuracy, the new Motoman MC2000 “Master Cut” robot ensures superior path precision for laser cutting sharp corners and small holes. Based on the application, path accuracy of within 0.1 mm can be achieved.
Formcut software enables precise cutting of shapes or profiles. The software automatically produces the ideal path using user-specified geometry. A single programmed point creates pentagon, circle, and rectangle, hexagon, and ellipse shapes. Robot speed, cut motion start and overlap, corner radii, and timing options are defined within a single cut.
The MC2000 is a 110.3 lb payload that can be effectively used for Remote Laser Welding head. It provides higher path accuracy when combined for use with standard welding or cutting laser head. This robot features 3,165 mm vertical reach, 2,038 mm horizontal reach, and ±0.07 mm repeatability. It is available in floor-mounting option, offering brakes on all axes.
The six-axis MC2000 is ideal for laser welding, material cutting, and dispensing applications. Proportional analog produces a control signal with respect to the velocity of the robot. A uniform bead results on contoured parts, upon deployment with dispensing equipment flow controls. The signal is being extended on a fieldbus network or as an analog voltage.
Based on the dynamic Motoman DX100 controller, the MC2000 integrates patented multiple robot control technology for performing multiple tasks and I/O devices and communication protocols, controlling up to eight robots (72 axes). The DX100 includes a powerful PC architecture having unrivalled memory capacity. It utilizes color touch screen-integrated Windows CE programming pendant. It also ensures rapid processing speeds creating seamless interpolation. It features incorporated collision avoidance, accelerated Ethernet communication, advanced robot arm motion, and rapid I/O response. The comprehensive I/O suite boasts a graphical ladder editor for system level control, integral PLC and HMI pendant displays. The DX100 controller complies with all major fieldbus networks. It meets ANSI/RIA R15.06-1999 and other ISO and CSA safety standards.
The MC2000 robot is expected to be launched at IMTS 2012, on September 10, 2012 in Chicago.
