Yaskawa presents the new AR series of welding robots
14. October 2019
These high-performance robots are available with 8-25 kg payload capacity in order to support a wide variety of sensors and torches for welding application flexibility. The AR-series robots offer the highest payload, fastest speed and highest wrist allowable moment in their class.
Motoman AR700 and AR900: compact and fast
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.
Motoman AR1440, AR1730 and AR2010
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.
