Welding Robot Yaskawa Motoman AR1730

The powerful, dynamic six-axis MOTOMAN AR1730 robot provides highest motion performance in its class to achieve optimal results in extremely difficult conditions and especially for the high demands of arc welding applications.
Common Characteristics

With a high payload of up to 25 kg and a wide working range of 1730 mm this robot supports welding of bulky workpieces and mounting a broad variety of heavy welding and cutting equipment.

Its hollow arm design enables leading the welding cables and wire feeding through the arm to the wrist, which saves valuable space around it. The MOTOMAN AR1730 allows easy programming and enables high freedom of motion.

The wire feeder can be mounted in the prepared space at axis 3, supporting short distance and centric supply of the welding wire to the weld torch. The streamlined, slightly bowed arm structure reduces the interference area between the jigs and work pieces.

MOTOMAN YRC1000 industrial robot controller

The MOTOMAN YRC1000 is a compact, fast and flexible controller for MOTOMAN robots that combines high performance robot control in a small footprint cabinet with volume of 125 litres and a maximum weight of 70 kg. Besides the typical YASKAWA controller functionality, the YRC1000 includes additional functional improvements. Speed of the controller has been increased by lowering a ladder scanning time.
