Delta robot complements Motoman product range

26 April 2011

With its high payload, large working envelope and speed the new “MPP3” delta robot is said by Yaskawa to represent the latest technology for demanding pick-and-place applications

This new addition to the company’s wide range of industrial robots makes it possible for customers to specify Motoman robots for initial picking and packing to end of line palletising.

Several important performance objectives have been met in the design of this new 4-axis parallel kinematic robot. The wrist axis of this robot is significantly stronger than in comparable models and this enables the robot to handle payloads of up to 3 kg at an unprecedented speed of 140 cycles per minute.

For 1 kg payloads the robot will perform at an incredible rate of 233 cycles per minute. The MPP3’s high speed is managed by the company’s bespoke process management software, which also controls the integrated vision and conveyor tracking functions. This is seamlessly integrated into state of the art compact Motoman FS robot controller.

The range of applications for the new MPP3 delta is enormous and ranges from picking bags, cartons, sachets and raw product in the food industry to handling wafers in the production of solar panels. The compact design of this robot allows for space saving installation directly about the conveyor system. In addition this robot can be washed down – essential for those applications where hygiene is critical.

Despite its compact design the MPP3 delta offers a large working envelope, which makes this robot the number one choice for flexibility. Its vertical movement is an impressive 500 mm, which accommodates placement into relatively deep boxes, containers or trays. In the upper cylindrical area the robot has a reach of 1300mm and in the lower conical area the reach is 950 mm.

As is the case for all Motoman robots particular attention has been given to its reliability so customers can enjoy high uptime and low maintenance costs.

In summary the new Motoman MPP3 delta robot from Yaskawa, combines high speed performance with high payload and a large working envelope.

Key benefits:
 High speed up to 233 cycles/minute increases productivity
 High payload up to 3 kg increases flexibility
 Compact top mounted design with large working envelope saves floor space
 Integrated vision and conveyor tracking which is easy to use
 Hygienic design for wash down applications
 Best in class performance
