Courtesy: Yaskawa MotomanThe MH50 II-series robots by Yaskawa Motoman have a flexible design and are designed for processing large parts. This allows them to be used for a variety of applications, including coating, dispensing, machine and press tending, material cutting and handling. In many cell layouts, the extended reach models can eliminate the need for an external track, decreasing system cost and simplifying programming. Internally routed cables and hoses are intended to provide system reliability, minimize interference, and facilitate programming.

Wide work envelopes with small interference zones allow the MH50 II-series robots to be placed in close proximity to workpieces and equipment, reducing floorspace requirements. The robots have brakes on all axes and can be floor-, wall- or ceiling-mounted for layout flexibility.

These models use the DX200 controller, which allows the user to handle multiple tasks and control up to eight robots (72 axes), I/O devices, and communication protocols. The DX200 uses a Windows CE programming pendant with color touch screen.
