FABTECH Canada Report: Yaskawa automation keeps operations moving

Share This Post

At FABTECH Canada, Yaskawa demonstrated how its  Motoman robotic technology can help ensure your operations are always moving by alleviating production bottlenecks, addressing product demands or supplementing manual labor.

Senior regional sales manager Wayne M. Spooner showcased the ArcWorld HC, explaining that automating your welding process doesn’t have to involve large welding systems for your small and medium parts. With features like lead-to-teach and power force limited sensors, Yaskawa’s HC10 collaborative robot allows the shrinking of the size of a workcell down to a welding table.

The ArcWorld HC is a complete, yet flexible, solution to automating your welding process built on the same industrial platform as the rest of Yaskawa’s AR series welding robots, which provides full compatibility as your production grows.

The highly flexible workcell helps to supplement manual welding and requires only 3.7 square meters of valuable floorspace. The perforated weld fixturing table has a 1000 kg payload and the usable area allows for multiple small parts to be processed, or a singular large part. It processes parts up to 500 x 2000 x 800 mm in size (HxWxD).

It ships as a complete workcell with integrated cable management for easy s installation and setup. The enhanced cobot and safeguarding is fully compliant with latest robot safety standards (ANSI/RIA R15.06-2012, ISO and CSA). Welding processes are accessed by Yaskawa’s Universal Weldcom Interface directly from the robot programming pendant.

The single human-collaborative Motoman HC10 arc welding robot can be ordered with a choice of choice of Miller, Lincoln or Fronius power supplies.
