With the additional axis, the robot's EOAT is able to maintain its optimal position at all times. The seventh axis allows the VS50 to access hard-to-reach areas - such as lower sections of a car frame.
The Motoman VS50 isn't alone. The manufacturer also created an arc welding model, the VA1400, with seven axes of movement. These are the first 7-axis spot welding and arc welding robots ever created.
The VS50 robot is best suited for spot welding, assembly, loading and unloading applications. Its 50kg payload capacity accommodates the spot welding gun, or a variety of objects. This particular model can reach a full 1,485mm horizontally. The entire arm is constructed to be extremely slim - so customers can reduce the overall footprint of their system.
Motoman's VS50 robot comes with a DX100 - the latest controller. An expanded capacity for job memory storage, dust-proof design, increased input and ouput signal capabilities, and more allow this robot controller to dominate. The DX100 teach pendant is the lightest in the world. Easy to use, its multi-window capability also allows operators to multitask - watching the screen and being taught at the same time.
