Motoman Robotics: Floor-mounted robot
Motoman’s MPK50 4-axis robot with next-generation DX100 controller features a 50 kg (110.3 lb.) payload and a wide 360-degree work envelope, as well as best-in-class motion, speed and wrist ratings.
The MPK50 has a 1,668 mm (65.7 in.) vertical reach, 1,997 mm (78.6 in.) horizontal reach, and ±0.5 mm (0.02 in.) repeatability. Only 1,014.5 mm (39.9 in.) wide, it has a minimal interference radius. An existing internal pathway (from the robot base to the wrist) facilitates addition of a fieldbus cable for DeviceNet gripper control. The robot arm is rated IP54 with an IP67 wrist; an IP65-rated body is available as an option. An optional vision system handles a wide variety of randomly oriented product.
