Yaskawa Motoman's 6-axis MA1440 arc welding robot features a 6 kg payload and a large 50 mm wrist hole for utilities. The MA1440 features a contoured arm structure that reduces interference by enlarging the close-range motion area of the robot, making it optimal for welding large workpieces and reaching over jigs. The upper arm shape also provides an improved mounting area that allows more room for the feeder. Available in floor-, wall- or ceiling-mounted configurations, the space-saving MA1440 robot is designed for high-density layouts increases productivity due to its Sigma-5 motor control technology. The MA1440 robot has a 1,440 mm horizontal reach, 2,511 mm vertical reach and ±0.08 mm repeatability. Its integrated through-the-arm torch cabling eliminates cable interference, simplifies programming and reduces cable wear. The large 50 mm thru-hole can allow signal cables for sensors, higher current cables and water-cooling lines. The higher payload allows motorized torches and cameras to be mounted on the wrist for welding applications.
