Thinner models arrive

Thinner and slider models have arrived in Yamaha Motor Europe Robotics’ Robonity range, the LBAR motorless single axis rod actuator and the ABAR single axis rod robot. The series consists of ‘basic models’ and ‘advanced models’, allowing customers to choose the ones that best suit their needs.

Yamaha Motor Europe Robotics, FA Section has announced that its Robotics Operations has added new rod type models to the basic model line-up of the Robonity industrial robot series and that slimmer models with reduced height will be added to the existing line-up of slider types. These additions to the Robonity Series will expand it to 29 models, offering clients an even greater range of products to choose from.

The Robonity Series includes motorless single-axis actuators that enable clients to use motors and drivers they are accustomed to and single-axis robots that are bundled with the EP-01 robot positioner. The Series is composed of “basic models” featuring high rigidity, compact construction, and low cost, and “advanced models” boasting high precision, high durability, and cleanroom-ready specifications, allowing clients to select models that best suit their needs.

Main features

Newly added to the basic model range are the LBAR motorless single-axis rod type actuator and the ABAR single-axis rod type robot. Their main features include: a built-in linear guide design that ensures rigidity so that straight-line performance is unaffected even when a radial load is applied and high operational precision with ±0° rod non-rotating accuracy; construction contributing to equipment downsizing with a size some 65% more compact compared to conventional models; and support for long strokes up to 800 mm.

Added to the slider type line-up are the slimmer LBAS12 motorless single-axis actuator and ABAS12 single-axis robot. Greater stability has been achieved by reviewing the design and reducing the height. These are ideal when used for the X-axis of Cartesian robots and also contribute to overall downsizing.
