  • Kawasaki’s arc welding robots use state-of-the-art technology to match the quality of an expert welder

    Kawasaki’s arc welding robots are equipped standard with arc welding specific software to enable quick and easy programming of the process path.  Adaptive welding functionality is available to modify robot position, weave pattern and speed during welding to fill variable joints.  Their built-in intelligence, flexibility and high accuracy make Kawasaki's arc welding robots ideal for a wide range of arc welding applications.  Kawasaki offers standard and easy-to-use welding interfaces that can be integrated with any major brand of power supply.

    Built exclusively for arc welding applications, the BA006N and BA006L robot models use the latest arc welding technology to match the quality of a skilled human welder.  The 6 kg payload model has a long reach of 2,036 mm, compared to the BA006N robot's reach of 1,445 mm. The 45 mm inner diameter of the BA006L robot’s hollow wrist structure allows for through-arm cabling, simplifying cable and hose management. The hollow wrist design is compatible with torch manufacturers’ equipment and can be fitted with dress package cabling to minimize potential interference with other processing and manufacturing equipment. 

    The centers of the upper arm's length and rotation axis have been separated, allowing wire feeders to be placed in the space behind the upper arm. This provides more operation flexibility and allows joint 6 to operate at higher speeds, increasing productivity. In addition to preventing in process cable snagging, this speeds up onsite programming and eliminates 'cable positioning variables' to make offline programming more efficient and maintenance faster. 

    The BA006N/L is equipped standard with arc welding specific software to enable quick and easy programming of the process path.  Adaptive welding functionality is available to modify robot position, weave pattern and speed during welding to fill variable joints.  The built-in intelligence, flexibility and high accuracy of the BA006N/L robots deliver throughput for a wide range of arc welding applications.

  • The Kawasaki general-purpose CX series robots offer a large payload capacity and feature a robust, yet lightweight, hollow arm while running on a compact universal controller.  With a much smaller footprint and narrower body compared to other robots with a similar payload, CX series robots can satisfy most layout requirements.  The series’ high-speed and slim arm design was developed to suit a wide range of applications, from material handling to spot welding.

  • In response to the rising demand for fast, flexible and compact industrial robots, Kawasaki developed two 6-axis vertically articulated robots with a maximum payload capacity of 7 kg and different reach.  The RS007N and RS007L models are the latest additions to the company general-purpose R series line of small-to-medium payload (3-80 kg) robots, which offers excellent functional and environmental performance for assembly, material handling, machine tending and other applications.
     

    Both the Kawasaki RS007N and RS007L robots continue to offer the operational advantages of the R series robots while incorporating a newly redesigned arm structure and main-unit weight reductions. These enhancements result in the fastest operating speeds in these robots' class (12,100 mm/s) along with increased working ranges.  By redesigning the arm structure and adjusting the acceleration rates in accordance with load weights and robot positioning, these models also offer consistently optimized performance by significantly reducing cycle times. 

    The RS007N robot features a 730 mm reach and the RS007L a 930 mm reach for greater flexibility in production facility layouts. By utilizing a cantilever design for the upper arm section, Kawasaki has achieved a longer maximum reach and an expanded range of motion: below, behind and in the immediate vicinity of the robot.  Additionally, these floor or ceiling mount models are designed to house vision cables, sensor harnesses, air lines and other components inside the arm structure. This prevents interference with and from peripheral equipment, thus allowing for operation in tight installation spaces. 

    The RS007N and RS007L robots feature a double-seal construction on all axes and waterproof electrical connections, offering an IP67 classification for the wrist and IP65 for the remaining axes.  This first rate environmental protection means the robots are protected against large quantities of dust, water, lubricants, coolants, and can even withstand high surface temperatures and temporary submersion.

    The RS007N and RS007L robots come standard with Kawasaki’s newest F60 robot controller.  This state-of-the-art controller helps manufacturers digitally connect their machines and extract value from the Internet of Things (IoT), and features enhanced data collection and transfer capabilities to support overall equipment efficiency (OEE) calculations and smart manufacturing.  The Bluetooth enabled controller allows for the collection and analysis of both robot and production data and provides the ability to link to the cloud, other robots or machines, tablets, vision cameras and various fieldbuses.

    With a compact design, industry leading speed and reach, and an enhanced communication controller, the RS007N and RS007L robots meet the demand for smart and flexible manufacturing, enabling efficient small batch production and minimizing changeover times.

  • The B series robots were developed for spot welding applications using Kawasaki's proven advanced technology and extensive automotive experience to take performance to the next level. The robots offer through-arm cable routing, a space saving design with a wide work envelope, as well as heavy-duty motors and advanced motion control technology that make the B robot a champion sprinter. These features reduce manufacturing line build and digital engineering time, support installation in “high-density” applications, and bolster high speed short-pitch movements, making the B series robots ideal for spot welding.

    Minimized net weight, heavy-duty motors and advanced motion control technology make the B robot a champion sprinter. It excels at high speed short-pitch movements making it ideal for spot welding. The improved motion sequence by the servo welding guns, as well as the automatic calibration feature to optimize acceleration and deceleration of the gun speed, leads to a significant reduction in cycle time and results in maximum production.

    The Kawasaki B robot combines a long reach arm with a minimal amount of dead space for a wide work envelope and greater flexibility. Kawasaki Robotics' years of automotive experience have culminated into an optimal body shop design for both task effectiveness and multi-purpose usage.
