Yaskawa Motoman has added two high-speed, six-axis models to its paint robot line that are designed to create smooth, consistent finishes for a variety of painting and dispensing applications.

Well-suited for painting smaller components and able to be mounted with a variety of spray guns and small bells, the compact MPX1150 robot has a straight wrist with 5-kg payload capacity. Its small footprint and slim arm design allow for minimum installation space, and an optional location for manipulator cable connection reduces interference with walls. The MPX1150 features a 727-mm horizontal reach, 1,290-mm vertical reach and ±0.02-mm repeatability.

Suited for automotive components and other industrial applications, the MPX2600 robot features a streamlined, upper arm equipped with mounting points to optimize hose routing. Its 15-kg wrist payload allows for mounting a variety of spray guns and large bells, while the large, 70-mm hollow wrist diameter helps prevent paint and air tube interference.  The MPX2600 features a 2,000-mm horizontal reach, 3,643-mm vertical reach and ±0.2-mm repeatability.

Both models can be floor-, wall- or ceiling-mounted for layout flexibility. The DX200-FM controller includes application-specific software for paint applications and coordinates operation of the robot and painting devices including spray guns, color changers and gear pumps.
