New! Motoman Introduces YS-Series Robots

Dayton, Ohio - Motoman Inc.'s new YS-series (Yaskawa SCARA) robots are high-speed, high-precision models that are ideal for small-payload, vertical motion mechanical assembly; case packing; packaging; kitting; and life science applications, such as test tube handling for research/discovery. These compact, economical four-axis SCARA (Selective Compliance Assembly Robot Arm) robots share the same programming language (INFORM III) and controller as other Motoman robots with six or more axes. They can easily work along side larger Motoman models, and offer the same robust capabilities -- including an extensive array of hardware and software options, external axis capabilities, vision system integration, etc. --with a smaller footprint.

The YS450 and YS650 models feature a T-axis repeatability of ±0.015 mm (0.0006") and the YSH850L features a T-axis repeatability of ±0.025 mm (0.0009"). They are available with a range of payloads, reaches and Z-axis strokes, and speeds to suit a wide variety of application needs:

All YS-Series robots are controlled by the more compact, "mid-size" Motoman NXM100 robot controller that delivers all of the same features of the full-sized NX100 controller in a much smaller "mid-size" cabinet that easily fits underneath conveyors. NXM100 control cabinets also can be stacked to provide floorspace savings.
