Yaskawa Motoman industrial robots and robotics automation systems

Yaskawa Motoman Case Study

In each of two identical systems, a Motoman HP165XP robot picks up individual crankshafts from a conveyor, loads/unloads a rust inhibitor station (as required), then packs out parts into shipping containers, bins or baskets. Robot also handles part trays, as required.Towers and Structural Steel

Plasma | Oxy-Fuel Flame Cuttting | GMAW

Flexible robotic system provides plasma cutting/oxy-fuel cutting and arc welding on tower components or structural steel parts. Robot programs are created off-line and downloaded to the robot system, saving programming time and increasing accuracy. Depending on parts, robot system meets or exceeds goal for 25% cycle time reduction. Robot system can perform cutting and layout operations in 30 minutes that formerly took 4-8 hours to do manually. When welding towers, robot is more accurate and welds complete sections while manual process must be done in sections and requires use of a crane to roll the part around. Changeover between cutting and welding processes requires less than 15 minutes.

Motoman Robotics Solution

Motoman provided a custom HP50-20 plasma/oxy-fuel flame cutting and arc welding system, including:

Fixtures/Tooling Details

Customer provided the tower holding fixtures. Fixtures use manually operated hydraulic clamping (that is not controlled by robots). No sensors are used.
