Yamaha to Demo New Automation Solutions at Automatica 2023

The Yamaha Robotics Factory Automation section will demonstrate new robots and applications at Automatica 2023 in Munich, Germany from June 27 to 30. Particularly, it will highlight the robots’ superior flexibility, productivity, and quality in automotive battery production and diverse industrial processes.

A special focus on SCARA robots will feature the YK1200X. Designed for high accuracy, this robot highlights an arm length up to 1200mm and payload up to 50kg. Moreso, visitors will witness YK1200X in action handling prismatic cells for electric vehicles in an application co-developed with system integrator JP Industrieanlagen.

“Our demonstration shows how battery makers can increase output, production quality, and cost-effectiveness,” commented Jumpei Ninomiya, Sales Manager for Yamaha’s FA business in Europe. “This timely solution meets critical market demands as the deadlines for game-changing legislation on car production are drawing nearer.”

Two demonstrations featuring LCMR200 linear modules will show how production lines can move items simultaneously in x, y, and z directions, as well as forwards and backward with electronically programmable speed, acceleration, and stop positions. Also, owners can utilize this uniquely flexible transport to overcome floorspace limitations, increase factory agility, and rapidly scale and adapt production.

In addition to all this, Yamaha will take the wraps off its latest collaborative robot in partnership with a famous chocolate maker. Also, the latest RCX-Studio graphical software for programming single- and multi-robot systems is available for viewing.

“We are bringing new and engaging demonstrations to Automatica this year. They will show how we can boost speed, efficiency, and flexibility in numerous industries. Among them include automotive, food preparation, pharmaceuticals, electronic assembly, general manufacturing, packaging, and logistics,” added Ninomiya.

Yamaha Robotics will be at booth 314, Hall B5 of Trade Fair Center Messe München from June 27 to 30.
