Yaskawa SCARA Robots Provide Compact Small-Part Processing
Yaskawa’s SG400 and SG650 SCARA robots integrate easily into existing automation and provide modularity for rapid redeployment.
Yaskawa’s compact SG400 and SG650 SCARA robots provide precise, high-speed processing for small parts. The company says these horizontally articulated robots excel at assembly, sorting, applications demanding short cycle times, and multi-process systems requiring pick-and-place capability. With their small size and high flexibility, the SCARA robots are said to provide a high work envelope-to-mounting surface ratio. According to the company, the robots are designed to be simple to integrate with current automation, and can be rapidly redeployed to fit changing manufacturing needs.
Three major technological advancements have changed modern manufacturing. Pay attention or get left behind.
Automated machining processes enable this maker of high-performance mountain bike parts to manufacture efficiently with minimal staff.
Programming a robot with the same CAM software used for a multi-axis machine tool makes it unnecessary to “teach” the robot by jogging it manually from point to point and recording these point-to-point moves as the robot’s motion commands. Robotmaster is a software package that provides this CAD/CAM-based, off-line programming for robots. It runs fully integrated inside Mastercam CAM software for CNC machine tools.
