Yaskawa Motoman Announces New Quick Ship Program for Pre-Configured Workcells

Yaskawa Motoman offers the widest range of standardized workcells for arc welding applications.

DAYTON, OH - A new Quick Ship Program expedites delivery of Yaskawa Motoman's most popular pre-configured ArcWorld® and FabWorld® robotic solutions. Five configurations are available with

a targeted delivery of eight weeks after an order is received.

ArcWorlds and FabWorlds are fully integrated robotic welding solutions that include the robot(s), welding equipment, part positioner and workcell safeguarding. Quick Ship Program configurations include:

*ArcWorld IV-6200(SL or XHD) - Trunnion workcells with dual robots. AWIV-6200SL is a slim-line cell for automotive Tier 1 and light construction parts; AWIV-6200XHD is a heavy-duty cell with a1,200 kg payload for agriculture and construction machinery.

*ArcWorld 1200 - Turntable workcell with dual robots. Suited for general fabrication, automotive Tier 2 or sub-assemblies for higher volume manufacturers.

*ArcWorld II-500 - An economical general purpose workcell for job shops, general fabrication or automotive Tier 2.

*FabWorld - Large scale workcell designed for agriculture/construction machinery parts with an extended-reach robot and 3,000 kg payload positioners.

"We are pleased to release quick ship workcells to complement our broad offering of standard and custom robotic welding systems," said Andy Glaser, vice president of sales. "The advantage of the Quick Ship Program is that we can offer customers more choices when planning for their short-term manufacturing capacity."

Yaskawa Motoman offers the widest range of standardized workcells for arc welding applications.
Additional quick ship configurations may be released in the future based on demand.

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.
