As an innovator in industrial robotics, the FA Section can trace its heritage back to the first solutions developed in-house for assembling Yamaha motorcycle and automotive subsystems. Today’s portfolio comprises SCARA, cartesian, single- and multi-axis robots, and linear conveyor modules with accessories and subsystems such as vision and tracking, to tackle diverse automation challenges in numerous manufacturing and logistics scenarios.

Our customers trust us to deliver reliable, cost-effective, and creative automation that improves business performance by combining high accuracy, speed, flexibility, and precision. They appreciate the unique qualities that are typical of the Yamaha approach: a compact and space-efficient footprint, affordable solutions for payloads of a few hundred grams with the scalability to handle larger loads, unique design features to minimise and simplify maintenance, and special options such as our drip-proof and dust-proof SCARA robots that boost reliability in tough environments.

Examples include our chosen position-sensing technology, which is contamination resistant and more reliable than ordinary optical encoders, as well as the innovative guide-rail design of our cartesian and single-/multi-axis robots. In addition, long-stroke linear motors let our single-axis robots maintain high excursion speeds without derating, and our flexible LCMR200 linear conveyor modules provide fast and efficient workpiece transport in automated cells or on conventional production lines.

Our TRANSERVO series of linear-axis robots combine the affordability of a stepper motor with the smoothness, energy efficiency, and high performance of a servomotor. And while our YK-XE SCARA robots let small businesses on a tight budget revamp their processes to stay competitive, the YK-XG series with their advanced beltless drives deliver unrivalled precision and reliability.

Our systems integrate easily with popular industrial ethernet and fieldbus systems such as PROFINET, EtherNet/IP, EtherCAT, PROFIBUS, CC-Link, and DeviceNet. Or you can leverage your existing investment in PLC (SPS) equipment and knowhow. Yamaha’s intuitive robot programming language, graphical RCX Studio software – now featuring a new 3D simulator – help you plan and implement your automation system quickly and ensure right-first-time efficiency.

Moreover, you can quickly add robot vision for enhanced capability and flexibility, leveraging the latest RCXiVY2+ machine-vision system. Created to integrate tightly with the RCX340 controller, this vision system works with dedicated robot vision instructions that eliminate the latency imposed by conventional machine-vision signal processing and translation. And a simple hardware upgrade is all you need to add high-speed component tracking. There is also a choice of accessories to help customers finalise their automation solutions, including various electric grippers that are available off-the-shelf and ready to use immediately.
