The high-speed MH series robots from Motoman Inc. have a flexible design that allows them to be used for applications including coating, dispensing, material cutting, handling, and welding.
The long reach of the MH50 model and the extended reaches of the MH50-35 and MH50-20 make these robots suitable for processing large parts. In many cell layouts, the extended-reach models can eliminate the need for an external track. Cables and hoses are internally routed.
Wide work envelopes with small interference zones allow the robots to be placed close to workpieces and equipment, reducing floor space requirements. The robots have brakes on all axes and can be mounted on the floor, wall, or ceiling.
The robots use the company's DX100 controller, which includes patented, multiple-robot control technology to handle multiple tasks and control up to eight robots (72 axes), I/O devices, and communication protocols. The controller features a PC architecture and uses a Windows® CE programming pendant with color touchscreen.
