Yaskawa Motoman Introduces Compact ArcWorld C-30 Series for the Job Shop Market

The ArcWorld C-30 solution offers all the components needed for arc welding.

Dayton, OH — Featuring one station with a welding table suitable for customized part fixtures in an extremely compact footprint, the ArcWorld C-30 workcell is an affordable solution for the welding of small- to medium-sized parts that are typical in many job shop applications. The ArcWorld C-30 solution offers all the components needed for arc welding, including a six-axis MA1440 arc welding robot, DX200 controller with menu-driven arc welding application software, integrated welding package, operator station, pneumatic powered slide-up doors and a total safety environment.


The total safety environment complies with both U.S. and Canadian safety standards. Powered slide-up doors improve ergonomics and are interlocked with robot operation to safeguard the operator during part load/unload. In addition to barrier guarding with solid sheet metal side and back walls, safety features include a single point of operator control, Functional Safety Unit (FSU) to monitor the robot, enhanced E-stop functionality, safety interlocked gates, integrated speed monitoring and manual brake release for the robot.

Both new and experienced welding programmers can benefit from using the Kinetiq Teaching option available with the ArcWorld C-30. Direct teaching is more intuitive and reduces programming time. Its app-style, icon-based menus are easy for personnel to learn. Users can significantly reduce training and programming time for low-volume, high-mix batch production.

Shipped pre-assembled on a common base with cables routed in a covered tray under the table for improved life and minimized trip hazard, ArcWorld C-30 workcells are easy to set up and relocate.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
