Said to be the lightest-weight six-axis robot in the industry, the new MotoMini robot from Yaskawa Motoman weighs only seven kilograms to facilitate easy transportation and installation—making it ideal for tabletop-, floor-, ceiling-, tilt- or wall-mount installations to conserving valuable plant floorspace.Equipped with the highest acceleration in a small-sized robot, MotoMini is 20-per cent faster than comparable small robots, according to the company, while its 0.5-kg payload supports a unique variety of tooling and sensors to fulfill diverse project needs. Controlled by Yaskawa’s new ultra-compact YRC 1000micro robot controller, the MotoMini is ideal for applications such as assembly, dispensing, inspection, kitting, machine tending, material handling, packaging, parts feeding and sorting—all done at exceptionally quiet noise levels of less than 65 decibels at maximum load and speed.
