YASKAWA Electric Corporation (representative director chairman of the board/president: Junji Tsuda) will begin selling the new MOTOMAN-VS100 robots, specialized for spot-welding car bodies.
Spot-welding robot MOTOMAN-VS100
Ahead of our competitors, we’ve developed a wide range of robots, specialized for many purposes. Now, we’re introducing the new 7-axis spot-welding robot to our product line. This new model can be used in a wide range of production facilities for welding car bodies, a critical part of car production. This flexibility allows us to propose unique solutions to clients, making the most of their facilities.
a. L-arm (lower arm) length is variable.
The L-arm length of our new MOTOMAN-VS100 can be changed by adding 1-axis (E-axis), which moves in the same direction of the L-axis (2nd axis) and U-axis (3rd axis), at the mid-point of the L-arm in the conventional 6-axis robot. This new structure enables the U-arm posture to be controlled more easily compared to conventional 6-axis robots, expanding the operational range of tools for spot-welding car bodies. In this way, the robot can work more closely than before, saving layout space.
b. A higher density layout is realized.
Our new MOTOMAN-VS100’s 7-axis structure expands the tool’s operational range especially in up/down direction. A Higher density layout is realized without worrying about interference by increasing up/down operation more than left/right operation.
c. Welding range has expanded.
By expanding the operational range of a tool, the range of spot-welding can be expanded (the tool can approach the targeted surface vertically). This cuts the time of layout design dramatically.
