Yaskawa Motoman Introduces MotoFit Force Control Software
By: Yaskawa Motoman
This six-axis force sensor can detect three translational forces and three axial moments. Three operations (touching, fitting and inserting) are combined to provide automatic precision fits of mating surfaces of 10–100 µm. High-speed fits – up to 20 mm deep with h7/H7 tolerance – can typically be done in five seconds. This makes MotoFit ideal for drive train components, seat, electronics or battery assembly and non-destructive testing.
MotoFit includes a six-axis sensor, high-speed communication board, power supply box, robot mounting flange adapter and Engineering Support Tool (EST) software. EST, a PC application, is used for sensor setup and job creation. After creation, jobs can be edited if needed.
Select Motoman robots (6-15 axis; up to 20 kg payload) are offered with MotoFit. Compatible robot controllers include the new DX200 and FS100.
