YASKAWA offers a variety of solutions for forming applications. We have a wide range of six-axis robots with payloads up to 600 kg. A Floor-mounted or inverted MotoRail, tracks are also available. If the part being produced exceeds the capability of a single robot, a second robot can be added on the floor or a track. These multiple robot applications benefit from our patented multiple robot control, which provides coordinated motion that is extremely valuable when two robots are handling a single part.
In press tending or high duty cycle stamping applications, our Expert Press or Expert Press Handling robots are ideal. These robots are designed with heavy duty drive systems and have higher vibration ratings for use in the press room. Some models are designed to work with our parallel link tool that allows the robot to be used on a press line without rotating the dies, a common request from some stampers.
With ever-changing parts and smaller lot sizes, flexibility is the key to the automation puzzle. Our robots allow for quick changeover from part to part, and multiple robots can be programmed to work together for multi-stage processes. By utilizing robotic automation, users will also improve operator safety by eliminating manual press loading and repetitive lifting. Our highly flexible solutions offer significant value that will reduce your costs and improve productivity.
