On September 17 will be released the new SCARA robot YK400 XE from Yamaha Motor Europe FA Section. Added to the SCARA robot portfolio, this model is a successor model of the YK400 XR and will be shown at Motek Show 2019. It features an arm length of 400 mm with high accuracy and performance even at a less expensive price. It comes with a maximum payload of 4 kg, which is 1.4 times larger than the conventional model.
The standard cycle time is reduced by around 10% to achieve 0.41 sec. by strengthening the drive system and arm, improving the rigidity, and increasing the performance of the controller “RCX340”. The high cost performance is still achieved even when the maximum payload is increased, and the operating performance is improved. Moreover, the installation position is fully compatible with the conventional model, thus, the replacement work can be performed easily.
