Cobot-Led Mobile Integrated Workstation for Welding, Machine Tending and MoreFebruary 8, 2023
Compatible with the Yaskawa HC10, HC10DT, HC10XP and HC10DTP collaborative robots (cobots), the HC10 mobile workstation from Yaskawa Motoman is an economical solution for integrating HC10 robots with the YRC1000 controller (sold separately) into a single package, well-suited for arc welding, assembly, machine tending and pick-and-place tasks.
Highly portable, the riser is quickly redeployed to meet evolving production demand. Its space-saving footprint easily integrates into current manufacturing environments, and it can be moved efficiently with a pallet jack or forklift. The workstation’s metal cabinet houses the robot controller and offers a comfortable working height for most collaborative applications. Built-in leveling feet offer a stable platform while the robot runs at maximum speed and payload capacity.
Internally managed cables allow for simple setup and reduced expenses related to maintenance and spare-parts inventory. The workstation includes a 2-m-long robot cable with a 90-deg. connector to the controller for efficient wire management. Optional area scanners provide speed and separation monitoring, and, an optional stack light can alert nearby users of robot movement, alarms or general status.
