Yaskawa Motoman Unveils HP20D-A80 Robot

Made of high-precision drives on major axes, the new Motoman HP20D-A80 robot has been designed for high-precision cutting and dispensing applications. Formcut software creates the path automatically to cut shapes using user-specified geometry.

HP20D-A80 Robot

The HP20D-A80’s path accuracy is equivalent to the larger MC2000 robot. Based on the application, the path accuracy can fall within 0.1 mm. The robot provides a 20 kg payload with a 3,063 mm vertical reach, a 1,717 mm horizontal reach and with ±0.06 mm repeatability.

The control system creates a control signal analogous to the speed of the robot. Integration of the system with dispensing equipment flow controls will create a uniform bead on contoured parts.

The compact HP20D-A80 is available in ceiling-, floor- or wall- mounted configuration and provided with brakes on all axes. It consists of advanced collision avoidance features. Based on Yaskawa Motoman’s DX100 controller with in-built patented multiple robot control technology, the system ensures multiple applications and leverages I/O devices and communication protocols and up to eight robots (72 axes). The DX100 has been designed with a robust PC architecture with superior memory capacity and utilizes Windows CE programming pendant having color touch screen. With high energy-efficiency, the DX100 controller ensures rapid processing speeds for seamless interpolation, incorporated collision avoidance, advanced robot arm motion, accelerated Ethernet communication and speedy I/O response. Its broad I/O suite features HMI pendant displays, integral PLC, 2,048 I/O and a graphical ladder editor for system level control. The DX100 controller can be adapted to any fieldbus network. It is ANSI/RIA R15.06-1999 complaint and meets ISO and CSA safety standards.
