The Yaskawa Motoman ArcWorld IV-6000 workcell features a trunnion or headstock/tailstock style positioner for high performance payload and heavy part capability. The ArcWorld IV-6000 configuration includes a single arm mounted on a pedestal.
Coordinated motion software allows idle robot time by allowing the robot to weld while the positioner is rotating parts. The workcell layout is flexible enough to accommodate both standard and extended reach robot arms.
Three positioners are available, all from the MRM2-M3X series. They can handle payloads of 250 kg, 750 kg (HD), and 1200 kg (XHD). Index times are fast, ranging from 1.5, 2.25, and 3.25 seconds. All three positioners have a common structure, however the MRM2-1200M3X XHD has larger support structures on the ends.
The operator station has an E-stop, illuminated push button cycle index, selector for auto/manual, and alarm lamp. The AW IV-6000 door interlocks, arc glare walls and light curtains for additional safety.
