New Motoman GP robots for easy handling of heavier loads

25 September 2018

The Motoman GP Series of robots from Yaskawa has recently been extended to include options which are suitable for applications with heavier loads up to 600kg.

The compact and efficient range of robots, Motoman GP600, is known for high-speed assembly, packaging and general handling applications. It’s designed for heavier handling and general applications where payloads weigh up to 600kg.

Thanks to this latest addition to the range the current GP (General Purpose) models are successfully replacing the handling robots of the proven MH series. These powerful, 6-axis GP600 robots are designed as true productivity drivers offering a wide motion range (up to 2942mm) for safe and efficient handling of large and heavy work pieces. 

Other important features include their ultra-compact design which enables the robot to be positioned closer to machines and fixtures helping to save valuable floor space. They also feature a parallel-link construction for strength, rigidity and stabilisation of high inertia loads, along with heavy-duty bearings which ensure a smooth arm rotation.

In addition to their ability of handling heavier loads, these new models also offer the benefits associated with Motoman robots, such as optimum productivity with high payloads and speeds. They also allow for a wide variety of products to be transferred with different grippers to ensure greater allowable movement. Speeds of all axes have been increased, whilst acceleration/deceleration control has been improved to achieve maximum reduction of acceleration/deceleration time for all robot postures.
