Advanced Robotics Automation Platform

Advanced Robotics Automation Platform

Only Yamaha can offer your production lines Total Optimization.

Yamaha Motor Co., Ltd.’s new “Advanced Robotics Automation Platform” realizes the effective,
quick, low cost construction of automated manufacturing lines, with a significantly greater unity with IoT.
The platform offers a completely renewed lineup of all the robotic products used in a variety of automated processes including transfer,
handling, assembling and image recognition, and also provides new type products such as linear conveyor module LCM-X series,
scara robot YKX series, single axis robots GX series ,YLE series and robot camera YFAEYE.
In addition to these groups of products, Yamaha is also launching the integrated type controllers YHX series,
that enables cooperative and synchronous control of these robot products.
Yamaha is confident that this product lineup will provide solutions to the challenges your factory faces,
and dramatically accelerate automated production to maximize the effects of your investment.

Even more advanced usability enables centralized control with a single Universal Controller


Centralized control by Universal Controller

A single Universal Controller can control all the sliders in a centralized manner including slider circulation.
Capable of cooperative motion with peripheral robots, the Universal Controller enables you to build up a highly sophisticated transport process.

The bridge pier structure enables speedy setup.

The connection units allow highly accurate mechanical connection of the modules. All you have to do is tighten the bolts. The mechanical connection also completes the electrical connection at the same time without additional connection cables.
Considerably easy setup saves you a lot of time.

Use of module with built-in motor driver saves electrical wiring.

The unitized electro-mechanical structure with a motor driver built in the module controls entire LCM-X. Connecting with the Universal Controller via one YQ Link cable is all you have to do. It surely contributes to saving space in the control panel.

Low profile structure

Use of the newly developed linear motor makes the module height approximately half compared with the previous model. You can also use a space under the frame.

Able to identify slider IDs

The multi-track magnetic sensor enables to identify a slider ID at any point in the transport process.
Even if you have unintentionally changed sliders, the system correctly identifies the ID of each slider.

Realizing integrated control of units, peripheral devices, and operation


Capable of integrated control between robots and peripheral devices

Control peripheral devices such as robots, linear conveyors and image processing cameras and so forth that are compatible with the Advanced Robotics Automation Platform in an integrated manner. You can build up a highly sophisticated automated system.

【Number of axes controlled simultaneously】64 axes
【Number of robots controlled simultaneously】64 robots and sliders
【Number of motors controlled simultaneously】255 motors

Integrating PLC complying with international standards, All set for IoT compatibility

Integrating a high performance, high speed general purpose PLC and capable of handling 5 languages that comply with IEC61131-3, the Universal Controller can control entire automated units and devices including robots and peripheral devices. Besides, it has a flexibility and expandability to further become compatible with IoT and Industrie4.0.

Stacking structure an industry first

The stacking structure including as far as a motor driver and a motor drive power supply dramatically reduces the electrical wiring.
Stacking all the control power supply, motor drive power supply, high speed network communications, and safety circuits eliminates electrical wiring between units while reducing the costs and man-hours for electrical installation to 30% to 50% of those for previous models.

Easy to operate whole screen programming pad

The programming pad comprising an approximately 10-inch whole screen liquid crystal touch panel with safety functions employs an easy to operate interface. It handles 3 languages of Japanese, English, and Chinese.

Cuts down the space required in a control panel by up to 65%

All models equipped with ground ball screws

All product models employ highly efficient, highly accurate ground ball screws as the standard features.
The lead accuracy complies with JIS accuracy class C5 that brings about the positioning accuracy repeatability of ±5 μm. The accuracy is about two times better than the previous.
This highly accurate positioning accuracy repeatability improves yield, too.
In addition, the unit is quieter with a longer service life.

Shortest overall length in the industry

The overall length with reference to the stroke is the shortest in the industry.
This significantly contributes to saving production facility footprints.

Made to the clean specification as a standard feature

The top face on the main body of all models is lined with dustproof, excellently durable stainless steel sheet. The arrangement suppresses foreign matter contamination from outside.
Yet another standard feature suction tap only needs piping joint for drawing air to be used in a clean environment.

Easy to alter specifications

- The “Forget it now, think it later” concept significantly decreases man-hours for design check.
- Attaching angle unit
Attach a developed angle unit to a standard motor. This enables left and right motor to change directions while making the units layout high density.
- Changing the location of robot cable pullout
The direction of cable pullout can be changed to customer’s specification.

No need to return to origin / Compatible with absolute position system without battery

With the complete absolute position system employed, you do not have to return the units to their origins after the trans-installation or startup. An absolute position system without a battery is also available.
