Versatile Palletizing Robot

Oct. 5, 2022
Well-suited for a range of industries, Yaskawa Motoman's PL800 provides strength, rigidity, and stabilization of heavy loads.

Ideal for a variety of palletizing applications, layer picking, and other logistical tasks for end-of-line or distribution automation, the PL800 features a 1,764 lb. (800 kg) payload. Offering a 124.4 in. (3,159 mm) horizontal reach and 119.1 in. (3,024 mm) vertical reach, its large work envelope, speed, and robust payload capacity help to efficiently load/unload pallets, easily handling full layers or a variety of containers including boxes, bags, bottles, and cases.

Parallel-link structure provides strength, rigidity, and stabilization of heavy loads. The T-axis features a 3.9 in. (100 mm) pass-through to facilitate easy connections to the end-of-arm tool, as well as high allowable moment of inertia to ensure unbalanced loads are handled effectively without compromising speed or performance.

The PL800 offers an IP54-rated wrist and body as standard and can be floor-mounted. It is controlled by the high-performance YRC1000 controller. With a highly compact cabinet, the YRC1000 uses a lightweight teach pendant with intuitive programming.

Installation is quick and efficient. A single cable is all that is needed to connect the manipulator to the controller. Airlines and cables are routed internally from the base to the end-of-arm tool to maximize reliability, and a cable installation tube facilitates fieldbus routing to the upper arm and/or gripper.

The PL800 is available with Yaskawa’s PalletSolver software for fast and easy offline creation of palletizing patterns for virtually any mix of SKUs.
