Robots Optimize Painting, Dispensing Applications



The high-speed 6-axis MPX-series robots from Yaskawa America's Motoman Robotics Division are designed to create smooth, consistent finishes for a variety of painting and dispensing applications.

Optimized for painting smaller components, the compact MPX1150 and slim-arm MPX1400 robots feature a straight wrist with a 5 kg payload, making them suited for mounting a variety of spray guns and small bells. Each small footprint model allows for minimum installation. An optional location (right, left or bottom) for manipulator cable connection reduces interference with walls. The MPX1150 robot features a 727 mm horizontal reach, 1,290 mm vertical reach and ±0.02 mm repeatability. The MPX1400 robot has a 1,256 mm horizontal reach, 1,852 mm vertical reach and ±0.1 mm repeatability.

With its small footprint and slim-arm design, the compact MPX1950 allows for minimum installation space and is suited for painting small- to medium-sized components. It also has an optional location (right, left or bottom) for manipulator cable connection that reduces interference with walls. Its 7 kg wrist payload facilitates mounting an array of spray guns and small bells. The MPX1950 features a 1,450 mm horizontal reach, 2,730 mm vertical reach and ±0.15 mm repeatability.

Suited for automotive components and other industrial applications, the MPX2600 robot features a streamlined, upper arm equipped with mounting points to optimize hose routing. Its 15 kg wrist payload allows for mounting a variety of spray guns and large bells, while the large 70 mm hollow wrist diameter helps prevent paint and air tube interference. The MPX2600 robot features a 2,000 mm horizontal reach, 3,643 mm vertical reach and ±0.2 mm repeatability. Also available with lemma wrist (MPXL2600) for greater application flexibility.

The versatile MPX3500 robot is particularly suited for industrial coating and dispensing tasks. Ideal for painting contoured parts such as interior or exterior surfaces, this reliable model also offers a hollow wrist design with an inside wrist diameter of 70 mm and a high wrist/upper arm payload, accommodating a variety of spray equipment. The MPX3500 offers a 2,700 mm horizontal reach, 5,095 mm vertical reach and ±0.15 mm repeatability. This model is available in left or right arm configuration.

MPX-series robots offer reduced interference work envelopes and can be installed close to workpieces for efficient use of floorspace. Each model can be floor-, wall- or ceiling-mounted. These robots and the 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 is available with Category 3 Performance Level d (PLd) Functional Safety Unit (FSU), which supports safety-rated speed control, safety-rated soft axis and space limiting, and safety-rated monitor stop. In addition to enabling safe operation in smaller spray booths with adjacent manual operations, these safety functions can be utilized to save costs and reduce floorspace requirements.
