RobotWorx - Motoman ArcWorld 500 Workcell
Yaskawa Motoman’s ArcWorld 500 is designed for small-to-medium-sized parts produced at medium to high volumes. As a two-station cell that occupies only a single-station space, it has a small footprint. It works with a MA1440 welding robot with AccuFast II, a laser-based seam finder designed to cut cycle times.
