  • The new ArcWorld® 2000 welding workcell is a modular solution specifically designed for robotic welding of large workpieces. This powerful, flexible, pre-engineered solution is perfect for low- to medium-volume manufacturers with a medium to high mix of parts. Able to handle parts up to 5 meters in width and payloads up to 6,300 kg, the ArcWorld 2000 is ideal for labor intensive jobs involving large parts or heavy deposition welding. The workcell is configured with one or two six-axis Yaskawa welding robots directed by the DX200 controller with menu-driven arc welding application software, an integrated welding package (power source, wire feeder and welding torch), positioner(s), operator interface and safety barriers.

    The ArcWorld 2000 scales easily from a single-station layout with a reduced floorspace footprint to a two-robot dual station configuration that makes it easily adaptable to changing production demands. Two station layouts can be configured with a “blank station,” allowing end user supplied equipment to be installed, and each station can have a different positioner. In dual robot installations, the second robot controller can be a reduced cost, dual-robot control type module (DRC).

    Multiple positioner and robot options combine to deliver a modular solution for manufacturers of heavy transportation, agriculture and construction equipment. For maximum welding reach, the ArcWorld 2000 can be configured with two Motoman® MA3120 robots. Additional welding robot options include the MA1440 and MA2010 models.

    The ArcWorld 2000 takes advantage of the DX200 controller’s Functional Safety Unit (FSU) features as part of the total safety environment, which allows continuous station welding during part loading/unloading. Access to positions at either station is protected by light curtains. Peripherals such as torch cleaners or tip-changing stations are installed in a fenced center zone to allow operator access to stations while robot maintenance functions are performed. Cable management is accomplished via a fence mounted wire way that provides protection while safely keeping cables off of the floor, eliminating trip hazards.

    A MotoMount™ fixture mounting system can be included to eliminate the need for laser or transit alignment procedures, allowing for fast positioner setup and improved equipment life.

  • The new ArcWorld® 200 and ArcWorld® 500 welding solutions are designed to be versatile workhorses for small- to medium-sized parts or medium-volume production runs. These customizable models feature a dual-station design allowing for high robot utilization; the operator can load one workstation while the robot is servicing the other. Floorspace requirements are minimal, as they can occupy a typical single-station space.

    The AW200 and AW500 cell designs allow tooling to be quickly changed. Each workstation can be tooled for different parts or can be used for sequential operations. Both workstations feature a simple, rugged, electrically driven barrier door with a two-second cycle time. The Functional Safety Unit (FSU) provides an additional layer of safeguarding between the two stations without switches or a safety PLC, reducing cost and complexity. 

    The AW200 and AW500 can be configured with either a high-speed six-axis MA1440 or a seven-axis VA1400 II arc welding robot, which services both stations. A variety of weld packages are available.


    The ArcWorld 200 is designed for workstations with stationary tooling or a tack table. Risers are provided to allow end users to place their own tooling in the workstation, and each station accommodates a work area of 600 mm x 1,300 mm.  
     

    ArcWorld 500 workstations include an MHT185 positioner equipped with a MotoMount™ tool mounting system, which eliminates the need for precise alignment of the headstock and tailstock. Coordinated motion is standard between the robot and each positioner. Dowel pins can be used in MotoMount to allow rapid and accurate changeover between multiple parts/fixtures. Each station can accommodate a maximum part size of 1,000 X 800 mm.  

    Both models feature a total safety environment that complies with ANSI/RIA R15.06-2012 and relevant ISO and CSA safety standards. All ArcWorld solutions arrive pre-assembled for quick setup and deployment.

  • The Motoman® MA3120 arc welding robot features an extra-long reach arm that reduces the need for tracks. It is the longest robot arm designed for arc welding. Available in floor-, wall- or ceiling-mounted configurations and ideal for multiple robot layouts, the MA3120 has been improved over the previous MA3100 model robot with twice the payload, longer reach and improved through arm wrist design for arc welding.

    The MA3120 has a 6 kg payload, 3,121 mm horizontal reach and ±0.15 mm repeatability. Its integrated through-the arm cabling eliminates cable interference, simplifies programming and reduces cable wear. It has heavier payload capacity and an increased through hole wrist diameter making it easier to integrate pull-torches or welding sensors. Welding utilities (gas hose and feeder signals) can be routed through the robot base and the wire feeder mounts to the upper arm to reduce the torch length. The MA3120 is perfectly suited for use in workcells with larger workpieces, as well as for applications that require access to parts in tight spots or those with possible interference from fixtures.

    The DX200 controller features patented multiple robot control technology to easily handle multiple tasks and control up to eight robots (72 axes). The DX200 has been designed to improve process capability, reduce energy usage, and improve maintainability and safety. An enhanced Functional Safety Unit (FSU) provides control-reliable zone and tool position monitoring, standstill monitoring and speed limiting. This can reduce costs for safeguarding hardware, and it provides capabilities such as collaborative tasks. It is compliant to ANSI/RIA R15.06-2012 and other relevant ISO and CSA safety standards.

  • Sleek, strong and fast, the 6-axis MA1440 arc welding robot features a 6 kg payload and a large 50 mm wrist hole for utilities. The MA1440 robot is compatible with the DX200 robot controller which is more energy efficient and designed for improved maintainability.

    The MA1440 features a contoured arm structure that reduces interference by enlarging the close-range motion area of the robot, making it optimal for welding large workpieces and reaching over jigs. The upper arm shape also provides an improved mounting area that allows more room for the feeder. Available in floor-, wall- or ceiling-mounted configurations and ideal for high-density layouts, the space-saving MA1440 robot increases productivity due to its Sigma-5 motor control technology.  

    The MA1440 robot has a 1,440 mm horizontal reach, 2,511 mm vertical reach and ±0.08 mm repeatability.
    Its integrated through-the-arm torch cabling eliminates cable interference, simplifies programming and reduces cable wear. The large 50 mm thru-hole can allow signal cables for sensors, higher current cables and water-cooling lines. The higher payload allows motorized torches and cameras to be mounted on the wrist for welding applications. Additionally, a material handling version of the robot with a 12 kg payload is available (MH12).

  • AccuFast™ II, an economical laser-based seam finder for Yaskawa Motoman’s arc welding robot line, features improved sensor capabilities. The improved sensor offers increased performance by providing more reliable and repeatable feedback to the robot controller regarding part position. It also provides readings on a variety of materials and at angles of measurement that were not formerly possible.

    AccuFast II utilizes a non-contact, commercial point laser instead of “touch” sensing with the weld wire, which allows the robot to quickly and accurately locate welding seams. It greatly reduces cycle times not only by removing the need to cut the weld wire, but it also provides faster search speeds by eliminating wire deflection.

    The AccuFast II laser seam finder is compact, mounted in-line with the welding torch and is compatible with Yaskawa Motoman’s industry-leading thru-arm torch design robots. The sensor uses the same input and output signals as traditional touch sense, allowing it to be easily retrofitted into existing robot installations.

    Macro job routines simplify programming by providing a single instruction in the robot job for detecting a seam or feature. The laser sensor is housed in an enclosure with a pneumatic shutter to protect it from the harsh welding environment. An optional laser target aids in maintaining the sensor TCP and can adjust points if the sensor is serviced.

    In addition to AccuFast II, Yaskawa Motoman offers sensing technologies, ranging from cost-effective thru-wire touch sensors to cutting-edge laser and vision systems.
