Yaskawa Motoman’s new MH280 II robot is designed for machine tending, material handling and press tending applications. From boring to milling to grinding, the MH280 II can help improve product quality by removing inconsistencies of a manual process. It is also designed for “jigless” applications where the robot positions parts for processing by other robots, or when two robots handle a single part.
Its streamlined upper arm design allows easier reach into confined spaces, improving application flexibility. The six-axis MH280 II has a 280 kg payload, a 2,446 mm horizontal reach and a 2,962 mm vertical reach. Its large work envelope extends behind the robot, providing a wider range of motion which can increase the number of operations in a single cell and accommodating a range of big, heavy parts.
The MH280 II robot uses the dynamic DX200 controller that includes patented multiple robot control technology to handle multiple tasks and control up to eight robots (72 axes), I/O devices and communication protocols.
