Increase Your Productivity with the Masters of Material Handling: The New Motoman GP Series

Sep 26, 2016

​Motoman's latest and greatest robotic offering is the new GP series. The series includes the GP7, GP8, and GP 12 robots that are all compact and slender to help penetrate deeply into work spaces. The GP series by Motoman also provides a large work envelope, more flexibility, and a variety of mounting options such as floor, ceiling, and wall.


Motoman is proud to announce that it will expand its range of indus­tri­al mate­r­i­al han­dling robots with the new GP series. This series, due out Octo­ber 2016, will include the GP 7, GP 8, and GP 12. All of these robots will be com­pact, slen­der, yet cur­va­ceous to enable a pen­e­tra­tion into deep work spaces while also pro­vid­ing a large work enve­lope. To help pro­vide even more flex­i­bil­i­ty, there are ver­sa­tile mount­ing options: floor, ceil­ing, and wall.

If your appli­ca­tion requires a robot that can with­stand a harsh work­ing envi­ron­ment, then no fur­ther mod­i­fi­ca­tion would be need­ed for any of the three GP series mod­els. Each one has a smooth sur­face which facil­i­tates clean­ing and are rat­ed IP67. Addi­tion­al­ly, these three mod­els rep­re­sent sim­pli­fi­ca­tion at its finest as only one robot cable is need­ed to con­nect the manip­u­la­tor and con­trol unit. This is a huge advan­tage as it brings a small­er foot­print, reduced main­te­nance expens­es, and less over­all wear.

If all of this was­n’t enough, Motoman set the bar real­ly high with the fast speeds and accel­er­a­tions seen with this series. All of the new GP mod­els incor­po­rate the fast and high­ly dynam­ic Sigma‑7 series motors. Watch the speeds of the GP8 in action! 

Pro­vid­ing a range of options for a vari­ety of appli­ca­tions, each robot offers slight­ly dif­fer­ent pay­loads and reach­es. The Motoman GP7 pro­vides 7 kg pay­load and 927 mm reach. The Motoman GP8 offers an 8 kg pay­load and 727 mm reach. The Motoman GP12 is a mate­r­i­al han­dling work­horse! The GP12 is the world’s high­est speed robot in its class. It has an amaz­ing work enve­lope with a 12 kg pay­load and 1440 mm reach. You can read more about the specifics for each robot here!

The GP series robots are con­trolled by the new, com­pact YRC 1000 con­troller. The YRC 1000 was designed to bring the robot accel­er­a­tion and speed to new stan­dards, while also min­i­miz­ing the uti­liza­tion of space on the floor. It is the light­est pro­gram­ming device in its class, weigh­ing in at a mere 730 g.

The Motoman GP series is ready to con­quer your mate­r­i­al han­dling job by bring­ing high speeds, amaz­ing effi­cien­cy, and tak­ing up min­i­mal floor space.
