Versatile, high-speed Motoman ES165D and ES200D handling robots are suited for large-payload machine and press tending applications and various other handling tasks. The robots feature wide work envelopes and high moment-of-inertia ratings coupled with fast axial speeds and accelerations for high-throughput processing, the company says.
A compact, slim design enables the robots to reach into confined spaces, improving system productivity. Connections for servo gripper use are pre-wired through the robot’s base and upper arm to the robot’s wrist, which allows a wider range of product handling.
The six-axis models feature payloads of 363.8 lbs (165 kg) and 441 lbs (200 kg), respectively. Both models have a 104.4" (2,651-mm) horizontal reach and 132.8" (3,372-mm) vertical reach, with a repeatability of ±0.008" (±0.2 mm). The work envelope extends behind the body, allowing tools to be placed at the back to provide easy access to the tooling for maintenance, the company says. Standard robot models are floor-mounted, but shelf-mounted versions are available for layout flexibility.
Fast processing of the next-generation DX100 robot and system-level controller speeds commands for the ES165D and ES200D robots, while Motoman’s patented multiple robot control (as many as 8 robots/72 axes) provides collision avoidance features and facilitates programming. Advanced control functions optimize robot acceleration characteristics, reducing cycle time. Featuring a robust PC hardware architecture, the DX100 controller uses a Windows CE programming pendant with color touchscreen.
