Yaskawa Motoman RobotCalling it fast and robust, Yaskawa Motoman has added the six-axis MPX1400 robot to its MPX-series paint robot line. The model is suited for a variety of dispensing and coating applications.

Effective for painting multiple small parts simultaneously, the company says the MPX1400 robot is ideal for home appliances and automotive parts, including instrument panels and headlamp assemblies. A straight wrist with a 5 kg 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 features a 1,256 mm horizontal reach, 1,852 vertical reach and a ±0.14 mm repeatability.

The model offers a reduced interference work envelope and can be installed close to workpieces for efficient use of floor space. 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, color 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.

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 floor space requirements.
