YASKAWA MOTOMAN GP12 Robot Payload 12kg/Reach 1440mm With YRC1000 Industrial Robot Controller For Immaterial Welding And Handing

Ideal for high-speed assembly and handling applications, the GP12 robot is fast and compact. Not only does this highly efficient robot offer the highest payload, fastest speed, and highest wrist allowable moment in its class, but also it can be controlled by either the YRC1000 controller or the YRC1000micro controller. The YRC1000 utilizes the lightweight standard teach pendant or the easy-to-use touchscreen Smart Pendant, and the YRC1000micro is available for use with the standard teach pendant.

The GP-series robots offer improved acceleration/deceleration control for all robot positions resulting in overall improved productivity. The small footprint, slim arm design allows for minimum installation space and minimizes interference with peripheral devices. This enables the GP-series robots to be placed in close proximity to workpieces and other robots to create flexible, high-density layouts. Installation is quick and efficient. A single cable is all that is needed to connect the manipulator to the controller, resulting in easy setup and reduced expenses for maintenance and spare parts inventory.

The GP8 robot is compatible with the YRC1000 Controller or the YRC1000micro Controller as well as the standard teach pendant or the Smart Pendant.

Product Features

Our industry-leading, Motoman industrial robots include high-payload, high-speed, extended-reach, ultra-maneuverable seven-axis, and unique 15-axis dual-arm robots. With cutting-edge controllers, vision systems, peripherals, and other best-in-class components, we can configure a solution tailored for your manufacturing needs.

Quick Robot Wins for Greater OEE
With market demands more pressing than ever, the “throughput struggle” is real. To increase productivity and strive for 100% effectiveness, many manufacturers are placing greater focus on Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) to measure the efficiency of individual machines, automated work cells, production lines, and even entire factories.

Robot Programming for Today’s Workforce
Second, to robot cost, the top concern for many manufacturers branching into robotics is the ease of programming. To address this and to unlock additional potential for a wider user group, robot suppliers like Yaskawa are constantly seeking to provide easy-to-use automation solutions that can tackle tough challenges.

Easy and Efficient Robot Control for Secondary Packaging Operations
High-performance robots optimized for packaging are delivering exceptional speed and precision for picking, packing, and palletizing applications. Whether a manufacturer’s focus is food and beverage, pharmaceuticals, consumer products, or specialty items, a growing number of advanced technologies are making it easier to configure, program, and integrate ideal solutions that meet production goals.
