The Inner workings of the Motoman UP50

Sep 26, 2013

The Motoman UP50 robot is the perfect material handling and material removal robot for your production line. It is made up of many parts that can perform a variety of applications.


The Motoman UP50 robot, a mate­r­i­al han­dling and mate­r­i­al removal robot, has many parts that work as a team to per­form its appli­ca­tions. These parts include the tim­ing belts, the speed reduc­ers, the AC ser­vo­mo­tors and the inter­nal cables.

Every Motoman UP-50 robot has tim­ing belts on the R and B axes, part num­bers 250S5M525 and 250S5M475, which syn­chro­nize the move­ments of the robot. This is impor­tant to the flu­id­i­ty and the func­tion­al­i­ty of the UP50.

There are also speed reduc­ers on each axis of the UP 50: The S‑axis, HW9381671‑A; the L‑axis, HW9381465‑B; the U‑axis, HW9381670‑A; the R‑axis, HW9381640‑A; the B‑axis, HW9381636‑A; and the T‑axis, HW9381635‑A. These reduc­ers slow down the ener­gy com­ing into the robot, and put a low­er speed on the output.

The move­ment of the robot’s axes depends on the Motoman UP 50’s ser­vo­mo­tors, part num­bers HW9381772‑A, HW9381261‑A, HW9380938‑A and HW9381363‑A. The robot is depen­dent on these motors for their pre­ci­sion and speed, which increas­es the manufacturer’s productivity.

Final­ly, the UP50 from Motoman has inter­nal cabling, part num­ber HW9171781‑A, which directs pow­er and infor­ma­tion to the robot. The inter­nal cabling, as opposed to exter­nal cabling, allows for less main­te­nance, which saves mon­ey for the man­u­fac­tur­er over time.
