Robots Offer High Speed Pick and Place Operations

The YP-X Series offers six models, including 2 axes and 4 axes types, for high speed pick and place operations. Super high speed pick and place operation at 0.45 sec. cycle time provides extremely high productivity (YP220BX under operating conditions of 50 mm in vertical direction, 150 mm in longitudinal direction, 50 in arch volume, and 1 Kg load). Since it is possible to output a signal to turn any external equipment on or off from any position while the axis is moving, the actual production cycle time is further reduced. Because of the company’s unique servo system, settings for the stop point and operation pattern can be programmed freely. This makes the YP-X Series ideal for applications where there are multiple items in a small lot, an operation that is difficult for cam-type robots to perform.
