MOTOMAN MPX3500 for paint application - Compact, fast and versatile
10. February 2016
Other fields of application for this fast and flexible robot include the coating of automobile bodies, construction machines, components and many other workpieces. The 6-axis robot only needs a small amount of space to perform its work. The compact construction of the L-axis with no offset allows for the machine to be installed in small spaces close to the workpiece, while the internal cable and hose routing avoids interfering contours. The hollow wrist’s high load capacity of 15 kg allows for the use of even large rotary atomisers. The robot can also efficiently apply a variety of different colours. Thanks to its large motion range of 3,500 mm when wall-mounted, the MOTOMAN MPX3500 is suitable for use in large cells. To keep programming time for large cells to a minimum, the motion data can be mirrored by another robot on the opposite side of the painting line. The new painting robot is controlled by the high-performance DX200 controller, which is available with the optional addition of a Functional Safety Unit (FSU) for improved safety.
