Yamaha YK900XG Scara Robot Features Unique Arm Length and Low Maintenance
The Yamaha YK900XG Scara Robot features a unique 900 mm arm length with a maximum payload of 20 Kg. With a reduced number of parts, the YK900XG requires less maintenance than conventional models. The motor and reduction system for the Z and R axes are directly connected without a belt. There is no need to adjust the tension or replace the belt. The use of long-life grease eliminates the concern for changing grease.
The YK900XG has a positioning accuracy of + 0.02 mm for the XY axes. The unit weighs only 56 Kg and is easy to use. Because an absolute type resolver is used for the position detector, no return-to-origin action is needed. Time lost at startup is reduced. Piping and wiring can be designed in a compact layout and a special controller is available to allow complicated operations to be executed with ease.
