Kawasaki Y Series Pick and Place Robot

Typical industry applications of pick and place robots include food handling, pharmaceutical, cosmetics, as well as the assembly and placement of electrical, electronic, and machine parts. Diverseco supplies the Kawasaki Y series of robots which are capable of high-speed motion over a wide range, which helps speed-up production lines. These pick and place robots are exceptional additions to production lines given the extensive end-of-arm tooling (EOAT) options available. The EOAT available mean that no application is without a carefully designed tool, specific to manufacturer requirements.

The Y series includes two models: the YF003N, with a 3-kg payload capacity, and the YF002N with a 2-kg payload capacity. Both models require only a small factory footprint, exceptional for pick and place robots.

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. While 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 expanded line of products, including the YF002N, with a motion range of 600 mm in diameter and 200 mm in vertical direction, and the YF003N, with a motion range of 1,300 mm in diameter and 500 mm in vertical direction, spans a great range of workpieces and production lines.

The YF series can offer high-speed, high-precision, and safe transfer in combination with a visual sensing system. Furthermore, the arm of the YF003N robot is designed for washdown with acid or alkaline cleaner, making it ideal for food applications that require hygienic environments.
