Courtesy: YaskawaYaskawa’s six-axis MPX3500 robot is designed for painting and coating applications including recessed, curved, or contoured surfaces. The MPX3500 has a 15 kg wrist payload capacity and a 25 kg upper arm payload capacity, enabling spray equipment to be mounted directly on the robot arm. It also features a 2,700 mm horizontal reach and ±0.15 mm repeatability. The MPX3500 also features a hollow wrist with a large inside diameter of 70 mm which accommodates the mounting of spray equipment applicators with large hose bundles. Interference between the hoses and parts/fixtures is avoided, ensuring optimum cycle time, robot reach and part access. The robot’s L-axis is designed with no offset—enabling installation of the manipulator close to a workpiece and higher density robot spacing—saving valuable floorspace. It can be floor-, wall-, or ceiling-mounted to provide layout flexibility.
