Yamaha Motor Europe announced today that it will add the YK610XE-10 (610mm arm length) and YK710XE-10 (710mm arm length) models to the YK-XE Series of SCARA robots. Launching on April 16, the two new models build on the high speed and efficiency of the current YK-XE Series. Both models deliver high performance, with 10kg maximum payload and standard cycle time of 0.39 seconds (YK610XE-10) or 0.42 seconds (YK710XE-10), delivering increased productivity. In addition, the accessible pricing for these models helps users raise manufacturing performance and increase profitability.
Together with the YK400XE-4 (400mm arm length) launched last year, the YK-XE Series now includes three models. The expanded product lineup also covers a broader range of applications, encompassing not only assembly, conveyance, and sorting etc. of small components such as in smartphones and PCs, but also of large components such as in home appliances and automobiles.
Yamaha Motor has more than 40 years’ history in SCARA robots, since the first was installed in one of our factories in 1976. Since then, we have expanded our product lineup, which now features industry-leading product variations. The great diversity of alternatives we provide means that customers can choose the models which best suit their particular requirements, optimizing their production facilities while also working to reduce their capital expenditure.
