Motoman broke the mold with its newest robot.
The Motoman VA1400 sports not six, but seven axes of movement. It is the first arc welding robot in the world with this feature. This seventh "elbow" axis is located mid-way up the lower arm. It provides enough twist to access hard-to-reach spots without altering the position of the welding gun.
Because parts accessibility is so much better, the Motoman VA1400 is capable of delivering more consistent, high-quality welds. The new, 7-axis design also saves space and works more efficiently. It can be placed in close proximity to other robots and easily maneuver around workpieces, jigs, and other objects.
The Motoman VA1400 raises standards for flexibility and reach. Quick, compact, and flexible, the VA1400 offers a suitable 3kg payload and a wide 1,434mm horizontal reach. All torch cabling is fully integrated in the arm, allowing the VA1400 to move with even greater freedom.
The VA1400 is operated through a new DX100 controller. This particular controller has the capacity to store 200,000 steps and 100,000 instructions. In addition, Motoman has made an effort to keep this robot free of corrosive and explosive gasses and liquids as well as electrical noise.
