The YK-XG and YK-TW orbital SCARA series contain 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 7.6m/s, 35% greater angular speed up to 2.3m/s, and 93% higher R-axis speed at 1700°/s. With magnetic position resolvers, instead of optical encoders traditionally used in other industrial SCARA ranges, Yamaha’s SCARA robots benefit from higher noise immunity and boost reliability by eliminating the effects of contamination such as dust or grease that exist in industrial environments. Options include dust-proof and drip-proof models that can resist environmental contaminants, clean-room robots, wall-mount and inverse configurations, and the a series for cost-sensitive applications.
SCARA Robots Boost Speed, Versatility and Uptime
Yamaha’s SCARA robots are now available with arm lengths from 120 mm to 1200 mm, and maximum payloads from 1 kg to 50 kg.
