Yaskawa Motoman Introduces the MH3BM Robot for Biomedical Applications

Designed to handle specimen processing, drug dispensing and medical research applications.

Dayton, OH - The new MH3BM (BioMedical) robot is designed to handle specimen processing, drug dispensing and medical research applications. It features a special coating and stainless steel fasteners that permit cleaning with hydrogen peroxide. Its ISO 5 (class 100) clean room rating makes the MH3BM robot compatible with applications outside the biomedical market, such as assembly, packaging and small parts handling.


Cables and pneumatic connections are located on the bottom of the mounting surface, providing additional protection. The wrist of the robot is IP67 rated, while the body is IP65 rated. The MH3BM robot has a compact base width of only 200 mm (7.9"), utilities routed through the bottom of the robot and a 360º base rotation, maximizing available workspace.

This robot offers an 804 mm (31.7") reach and a 3 kg (6.6 lb) payload capacity. MH3BM robots have brakes on all axes and can be floor-, wall- or ceiling-mounted for layout flexibility. The built-in collision avoidance features with multiple robot control permit two robots to be used together to optimize productivity.

This model is compatible with the Motoman® FS100 controller which features open software architecture, enabling software customization in widely accepted environments such as C or C++.

Our fully autonomous intelligent vehicles will help you to transform the way you move materials and route your workflows. Increase throughput, eliminate material flow errors, improve traceability, maximize flexibility and allow your employees to focus on higher level tasks. Unlike traditional AGV's, our mobile robotics navigate using the natural features of your facility and do not require expensive facility modifications or guidance. Our AIV's can adapt to changes in their environment and work freely and safely with your staff. Our mobile robots are intelligent enough to quickly learn their environment and then automatically find the optimal path to where they need to go. They also automatically make adjust for dynamic environments and can work together in fleets of up to 100 robots.
