Motoman’s (Miamisburg, OH) ArcWorld 1000 series provides light to medium size part welding from a compact build. The welding cell features a common cell platform for the robot, positioner, and safety fencing. The workcell has forklift pockets, and Motoman has designed the workcell to fit in a 110 inch high trailer. The controller and power source equipment attach to the cell platform and can be separated for transportation, maintenance, or to change the orientation of the controller.
The ArcWorld 1000 uses Motoman’s AR1440 arc welding robot (the ArcWorld 1200 uses two robots). The AR1440 has six axes and a contoured arm and is controlled by the YRC1000 controller that features patented multiple robot control with coordinated motion between devices. The YRC1000 robot controller includes a Functional Safety Unit (FSU) that uses “stand still” monitoring of the positioner axis while the operator is interrupting the light curtain field.
The ArcWorld 1000 features sliding interlocked doors on each side of the workcell to provide programming access and a H-frame table top that reduces inertia by 54% compared to a solid table top. The machine includes an mSR positioner, which is available with 355, 655, or 1,055 kg payload capacity.
