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++.

IntervalZero's RTX64

RTX64 turns the Microsoft 64-bit Windows operating system into a Real-time operating system (RTOS). RTX64 enhances Windows by providing hard real-time and control capabilities to a general purpose operating system that is familiar to both developers and end users. RTX64 consists of a separate real-time subsystem (RTSS) that schedules and controls all RTSS applications independently of Windows.RTX64 is a key component of the IntervalZero RTOS Platform that comprises x86 and x64 multicore multiprocessors, Windows, and real-time Ethernet (e.g. EtherCAT or PROFINET) to outperform real-time hardware such as DSPs and radically reduce the development costs for systems that require determinism or hard real-time.
