Yaskawa Motoman MPL500 Overview

If you are looking to automate heavy palletizing applications, then the Yaskawa Motoman MPL500 is the perfect solution. Featuring a payload capacity of 500 kg, the MPL/500 can handle heavy workloads. In addition, its reach provides an extended work envelope, allowing for the palletizing of trailer height loads. A reinforcement bar runs above the robot arm to provide extra stability for the lifting of large items. Productivity is increased with its ability to service multiple infeed conveyors and up to four pallet build locations. Fast axial speeds and quick acceleration reduce cycle times. This four-axis robot will optimize your palletizing process.

Maintenance for the MPL-500 is made easy with its through-arm cable configuration. Air lines and cables are internally routed through the robot all the way to its EOAT. Cable life is extended with reduced wear. Operation disruptions due to cable interference are eliminated, maximizing its reliability. The hollow wrist design not only protects cabling but also allows for a wider range of motion. This industrial robot is similar in payload and reach to the FANUC M-410ib/450.

The Yaskawa Motoman “Master Palletizing” MPL 500 is compatible with either the DX100 or DX200 control system. The DX100 controller is highly intelligent with multiple robot control technology. Up to 8 articulated robots can be controlled with a single DX100 controller for maximum efficiency.
