Pick & Place Robots - Kawasaki Y Series Robots
Kawasaki Robotics (USA), Inc.Updated 07/10/2019
ULTRA HIGH-SPEED DELTA ROBOT
The Y Series high-speed pick & place robots are ideal for a wide range of applications, including food, pharmaceutical, and cosmetics production lines, as well as the assembly and placement of electrical, electronic, and machine parts. The Y Series includes two models: the YF003N, with a 3 kg payload capacity, and the YF002N with a 2 kg payload capacity. They are capable of high speed over a wide motion range, which helps speed up production lines.
HIGH PROCESSING CAPABILITY
The YF003N boasts speeds of 222 cycles per minute for a 1 kg payload operation, in a to-and-fro motion, with an upward stroke of 25 mm, a horizontal stroke of 305 mm, and then a downward stroke of 25 mm. The YF002N offers speeds of 200 cycles per minute for a 0.5 kg payload operation, in a to-and-fro motion, with an upward stroke of 25 mm, a horizontal stroke of 305 mm, and then a downward stroke of 25 mm. The high processing capability of the Y Series models contributes to takt time reduction.
LARGE MOTION RANGE
To accommodate various types of workpieces and production lines, the Y Series robot models cover a wide motion range: YF002N motion range of 600 mm in diameter and 200 mm in vertical direction, and YF003N motion range of 1,300 mm in diameter and 500 mm in vertical direction.
High repeatability ensures accurate pick & place and high productivity - positional repeatability of ± 0.1 mm and angular repeatability of ± 0.1 degree.
The YF002N, with its more compact structure and smaller footprint, enables a high-density layout of multiple robots. The lighter body can also be installed on a cantilever mount.
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. The YF002N’s top mounting base is provided with a hollow space at the center for installing a camera.
The YF003N model is designed for wash-downs with acid or alkaline cleaner, making it ideal for food applications that require a hygienic environment.
As food processing machinery, the YF003N model’s moving parts use food grade grease and oil to ensure hygiene.
The simple center-drive as well as shaftless design prevents mechanical trouble and contributes to the robots’ overall minimal maintenance requirements. The YF002N is designed so that the main parts can be replaced as a unit.
Model: YF002N, YF003N (2 models)
