Pack expo 2009 saw the demonstration of Kawasaki’s all-new YF03N pick and place delta robot, available from JMP Australia .
Pick and place robots, also known as picker, delta or spider robots, are used in high speed packing, sorting and handling operations for items in the following industries:
- Food industry
- Solar products, such as small solar panels
The new pick and place robot achieves extremely short cycle times, 0.27 seconds for 1 kg payload and 0.45 seconds for a 3 kg payload. The robot also features a large work envelope of Ø 1,300 mm with a 500mm z-stroke. A fifth axis can be added to this pick and place robot to further reduce cycle times and broaden its application range. In addition to this feature of the robot, the Delta pick and place robot also offers a wet wash down (IP67) option. As with all Kawasaki pick and place robots, it features low maintenance requirements with an industry leading MTBF of 96,000 hours.
