Automatica 2022 saw Yamaha Motor Robotics FA Section demonstrating industrial robots working together autonomously to raise productivity and reduce waste.
Yamaha demonstrated SCARA and cartesian robots cooperating to accelerate adhesive deposition and bonding. Visitors were able to see how coordination between multiple robots cuts process cycle time to increase output with consistent quality.
A display featuring the LCMR200 linear conveyor module illustrated flexible workpiece transport with accurate, programmable positioning. Teamed with a cartesian robot, the demonstration showed how the LCMR200’s precision helps to simplify system design as well as increasing throughput and efficiency.
In addition, Yamaha’s Robonity single-axis robots combine slim dimensions with high rigidity and a low centre of gravity to enable stable and space-saving solutions for transport, feeding, and general process automation. The associated EP-01 controller and software tools simplify robot selection, simulation, and programming, and provide real-time performance monitoring. The Robonity lineup also contains motorless actuators that give extra flexibility to customise system capabilities and cost.
Visitors were also able to see the affordable and high-performing YK-XE SCARA robots, which are available with arm length from 400mm to 710mm and up to 10kg load capacity. By lowering the cost of entry to advanced, flexible automation, the YK-XE series enables businesses large and small to become more productive and competitive.
