Yamaha Robotics’ Factory Automation Section is adding the new clean type YK-XEC series to its YK-XE series. It offers SCARA robots with high operational and cost performance. The YK-XEC series meets ISO Class 4 (ISO 14644-1) cleanliness standards, which are in high demand in the current market.
For food and medical applications
The main specifications such as the arm length and Z-axis stroke, as well as maximum payload are identical to the YK-XE series. By achieving a high operational performance of 0.42sec (YK510XEC) for a standard cycle time, this new model will further contribute to improving productivity as well as realizing labor savings in manufacturing plants for semiconductors and hard disk drives, which has seen growing demand recently, as well as in the food and medical equipment-related plants.
