Jul. 6, 2017 - The six-axis Yaskawa Motoman MPX3500 robot promises to deliver “superior performance and efficiently creates a smooth, consistent finish in painting and coating applications.”

The robotmaker says the MPX3500 offers a flexible, compact design and is ideal for painting parts of nearly any size and shape, 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 robot features a hollow wrist with an 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, promises Yaskawa Motoman. It can be floor-, wall- or ceiling-mounted to provide layout flexibility. The MPX3500 robot and DX200-FM controller feature Factory Mutual (FM) approval for use in Class I, Div. 1 hazardous environments. An intrinsically safe pendant is available as an option.
