Yamaha Motor Europe Factory Automation Section continues to extend its SCARA family. Available arm lengths now range from just 120 to 1200 mm, and maximum payload from 1 to 50 kg, to accelerate a wide variety of pick and place, packaging/de-packaging, and mechanical assembly tasks. The YK-XG and YK-TW orbital SCARA series contain advanced features that ensure efficient movement and superior long-term accuracy. By placing the tip-rotation axis directly in line with the speed-reducing gear, leveraging a specially designed hollow motor, the YK-XG beltless drive allows fast R-axis rotation with large offset loads that require traditional belt-driven robots to decelerate. The latest models feature 45% faster X-Y axis speed than previous generations, now reaching 7.6 m/s, 35% greater angular speed up to 2.3 m/s, and 93% higher R-axis speed at 1700°/s.
