Yaskawa Motoman Introduces Compact ArcWorld C-30 Series for the Job Shop Market
Yaskawa America, Inc. Posted 11/09/2015
Dayton, OH — Featuring one station with a welding table suitable for customized part fixtures in an extremely compact footprint, the ArcWorld® C-30 workcell is an affordable solution for the welding of small- to medium-sized parts that are typical in many job shop applications. The ArcWorld C-30 solution offers all the components needed for arc welding, including a six-axis MA1440 arc welding robot, DX200 controller with menu-driven arc welding application software, integrated welding package, operator station, pneumatic powered slide-up doors and a total safety environment.
The total safety environment complies with both U.S. and Canadian safety standards. Powered slide-up doors improve ergonomics and are interlocked with robot operation to safeguard the operator during part load/unload. In addition to barrier guarding with solid sheet metal side and back walls, safety features include a single point of operator control, Functional Safety Unit (FSU) to monitor the robot, enhanced E-stop functionality, safety interlocked gates, integrated speed monitoring and manual brake release for the robot.
Both new and experienced welding programmers can benefit from using the Kinetiq Teaching™ option available with the ArcWorld C-30. Direct teaching is more intuitive and reduces programming time. Its app-style, icon-based menus are easy for personnel to learn. Users can significantly reduce training and programming time for low-volume, high-mix batch production.
Shipped pre-assembled on a common base with cables routed in a covered tray under the table for improved life and minimized trip hazard, ArcWorld C-30 workcells are easy to set up and relocate.
