Palletizing Robot

Sept. 30, 2020
Yaskawa Motoman has introduced the PL500 robot which is suitable for palletizing applications, unitized loads, and other logistics tasks.

Yaskawa Motoman has introduced the PL500 robot which features a high 500-kg payload and is suitable for a variety of palletizing applications, unitized loads, and other logistics tasks for end-of-line or distribution automation.

The PL500 offers a large work envelope and a high payload to load/unload pallets, and can handle full layers or a variety of products, including boxes, bags, bottles and cases. It features a 3,159 mm horizontal reach, 3,024 mm vertical reach and ±0.5 mm repeatability.

Its T-axis features a 60 mm pass-through to facilitate easy connections to the end-of-arm tool, as well as a high moment of inertia to ensure unbalanced loads are handled effectively. Parallel-link construction also provides strength, rigidity and stabilization of high moment and inertia loads, while heavy-duty bearings provide smooth arm rotation.

The PL500 robot can be floor-mounted, and brakes are included on all axes. The robot is controlled by the YRC1000 controller that is built to a global standard and does not require a transformer for input voltages ranging from 380AC to 480VAC. With a highly compact cabinet (598 W x 490 H x 427 D mm), the YRC1000 uses a lightweight teach pendant with intuitive programming.
