Now available in five models – SP80, SP100, SP165, SP165-105 and SP210 – these six-axis robots are powerful and efficient.

    Offering improved acceleration/deceleration control for all axes, the SP-series robots enable improved productivity. While high allowable moment of inertia ratings provide substantial wrist rigidity, a wide wrist motion range eliminates interference and improves application flexibility.

    A slim profile design allows SP-series robots to reach into confined spaces, facilitating close proximity placement of robots for high-density layouts. An integrated spot harness improves wrist flexibility and reduces downtime for all five robot models as well.

    SP-series robots are equipped with servo gun and DC timer technology to optimize productivity and consistent weld quality. Spot monitoring and waveform graphing helps troubleshoot welding conditions, and controller connectivity provides simple wiring to spot timers and robot pendant weld programming for Medar® and Nadex® brand timers.

    Installation is quick and efficient. A single cable is all that is needed to connect the manipulator to the controller, resulting in easy setup and reduced expenses for maintenance and spare parts inventory. Equipped with an IP67-rated wrist and an IP54 body standard, each robot can be floor-mounted.

    Uniquely, designed for large part processing, the extended reach SP165-105 can eliminate the need for a linear track, reducing system cost and simplifying programming. Also, the SP165, SP165-105 and SP210 models do not include a counterbalance, reducing the mass of the robot arm and enabling higher acceleration, deceleration and speed.

    SP-series robots are controlled by Yaskawa’s high-performance YRC1000 controller that is built to a global standard and does not require a transformer for input voltages ranging from 380VAC to 480VAC. The YRC1000 is highly compact (598 W x 490 H x 427 D mm), resulting in reduced space requirements.

    The powerful and compact AR700 and AR900 robots are ideal for welding small parts with complicated angles in tight places with an overarm torch. A slim profile design allows close proximity placement of robots for high-density workcells, and a smooth, easy-to-clean surface accommodates use in harsh environments. As an option, the manipulator cable can be connected on the bottom of the robot (as opposed to the side) to avoid wall interference.

    The AR1440, AR1730 and AR2010 robots feature a contoured arm design that allows easy access to parts in tight spots and avoids potential interference with fixtures, enabling close proximity placement of robots for high-density workcells. The symmetric wrist profile, with ample range, provides equal torch access to both sides of part. A 50 mm thru-hole for torch cabling, hose and sensor wires reduces cable interference and wear. Likewise, the minimal U-axis cable protrusion and S-axis internal cable management prolongs cable life and maximizes part access.

    The AR1440 and AR2010 models have an optimized feeder mounting area on the arm to reduce equipment interference. The AR1440 is featured in all of Yaskawa Motoman’s popular ArcWorld® workcells. The AR2010 robot offers an extended 2,010 mm horizontal reach and 3,649 mm vertical reach, making it ideal for agriculture equipment, construction machinery or automotive frames.

    The AR1730 features a patented double-yoke upper arm design that is stronger than other six axis integrated cable designs, allowing it to provide years of reliable service at an increased payload while maintaining an agile profile.

    All five models feature easy maintenance, including a data saving feature that permits the robot’s wire harness to be replaced without having to connect it to a battery. All models can be floor-, ceiling, or wall-mounted to enhance joint access.

    AR-series robots are controlled by Yaskawa’s new high-performance YRC1000 controller that is built to a global standard and does not require a transformer for input voltages ranging from 380VAC to 480VAC. The YRC1000 is highly compact (598 W x 490 H x 427 D mm), resulting in reduced space requirements. Its I/O communication speed is improved by as much as 50% for improved work. The improved programming pendant design features enhanced ergonomics and is 27% lighter weight than the previous generation.
