Yaskawa Motoman Robotics recently introduced its new MotoMini robot, a small, lightweight six-axis robot. Designed to take small part-process to the next level, the MotoMini offers high-speed performance and its 7-kg weight facilitates easy transportation and installation, making it ideal for tabletop-, floor-, ceiling-, tilt- or wall-mount installations, it adds. Equipped with high acceleration, MotoMini is 20 percent faster than comparable small robots to reduce cycle time and increase production output, it says. Additionally, the robot’s 0.5-kg payload supports a variety of tooling and sensors to fulfill diverse project needs. It is ideal for applications such as assembly, dispensing, inspection, kitting, machine tending, material handling, packaging, parts feeding, sorting and STEM education. The ultra-compact design enables installation in factories with high-density layouts, and the compact footprint allows the robot to be mounted close to workpieces and other machinery in existing lines or cells. The MotoMini is controlled by Yaskawa’s new ultra-compact YRC1000micro robot controller, which can be installed vertically, horizontally, or mounted in a standard 19-inch equipment rack.
