ULTRA HIGH-SPEED DELTA ROBOT
The Y-Series robot is an ultra high-speed parallel type robot with the quality and reliability that has become synonymous with Kawasaki. The shaft-less design is simple to program and operate and features industry leading payload capacity, reach and speed.
WIDE MOTION RANGE
The robot's large work envelope (1,300 mm diameter and 500 mm Z-stroke) is ideal for a wide range of high-speed handling applications.
HIGH PAYLOAD CAPACITY
With a 3 kg payload capacity, this robot can pick & place a wide array of workpieces at very high speeds.
High repeatability ensures accurate pick & place and high productivity - positional repeatability of ± 0.1 mm and angular repeatability of ± 0.1 degree.
An integrated 2D high-speed vision feedback system can be added for material handling and pick & place applications. The K-VFinder vision software can recognize objects of different colors and shapes to quickly locate their exact position or perform inspection of the objects. Such recognition can also be done synchronously, while objects are moving on a conveyor.
ULTRA HIGH-SPEED OPERATION
Cycles times as short as 0.27 seconds can be achieved for maximum throughput and productivity.
Kawasaki engineers developed an arm design that eliminates the center shaft, which was determined to be the leading cause of failure with delta robots. The shaft-less design prevents mechanical trouble and contributes to the robot's overall minimal maintenance requirements.
The arm is designed for wash-down with acid or alkaline cleaner, making it ideal for food applications that require a hygienic environment.
Food-grade lubricants are used with the Y-Series robot to conform to industry standards.
OPTIONAL FIFTH AXIS
A fifth axis can be added to further reduce cycle times and broaden application range.
