The MHJF compact robot from Yaskawa Motoman Robotics is designed for light-payload applications such as small parts assembly, material handling and education systems.

The MHJF compact robot from Yaskawa Motoman Robotics is designed for light-payload applications such as small parts assembly, material handling and education systems. The robot is said to be well-suited for packaging, material handling, machine tending, assembly, dispensing, material removal and polishing applications and is available with floor- and ceiling-mounting options.
 
The compact robot offers a 545-mm reach at 1-kg payload, and a reach of 500 mm at 2-kg payload. The system is capable of 0.03-mm repeatability. The robot weighs 15 kg to minimize power requirements and maximize performance. Its small footprint and 92.5-mm-interference radius maximizes floor-space utilization, the company says. The robot features brakes on the L and U axes. Internally routed cables and hoses are designed to maximize system reliability. A compact design and built-in collision-avoidance features with multiple robot control enables two robots to be used together for increased productivity.
 
The robot is equipped with Motoman’s FS100 compact controller. The controller measures 470 × 200 × 420 mm and is designed for packaging and small-parts-handling robots with payloads weighing 20 kg or less. The controller is compatible with integrated MotoSight 2D vision and offers high-speed I/O response and high-resolution timers. An open architecture enables software customization in C, C++, C#, .NET and other environments. In addition, the controller uses the same programming pendant hardware as the DX100 controller to provide a programming interface consistent with current products.
