Courtesy: Yaskawa MotomanYaskawa Motoman's MH12 six-axis robot is designed for assembly, dispensing, material handling, machine tending and packaging applications. It features a curved upper arm that enhances its reach and allows a wider range of applications. Thru-arm cable routing provides longer cable life and reduces the risks of snagging or interference. Because the end effector cabling is frequently the highest maintenance item on a robot, this can increase the reliability of installations. The MH12 has a 1,440 mm (56.7-in.) reach and a large work envelope that extends behind the robot, permitting space for robot tool storage or maintenance.

The MH12 robot features an increased 12 kg (26.5 lb) payload, and higher moment and inertia ratings over previous "payload class" models, enabling it to carry larger and heavier payloads. It has brakes on all axes and can be floor- or wall-mounted for layout flexibility. A mounting surface is provided on the back of the upper arm for junction boxes or pneumatics. Mounting in this area provides a lower profile to the robot and avoids interferences within the cell. The MH12 has an IP67-rated wrist and an IP54 body.
