Booth to feature broad portfolio of solutions to simplify and streamline process automation

Yamaha Motor Europe Factory Automation Section will demonstrate technologies to accelerate robotic processes, including on-the-fly visual inspection and alignment, at Motek in Stuttgart, 7-10 October 2019.

Yamaha’s on-the-fly vision draws on technologies perfected in precision surface-mount electronics assembly to inspect and align picked parts at full speed, greatly reducing tact time of processes like palletizing, de-palletizing, and mechanical assembly. The demonstration will run on the competitively priced YK-400XR SCARA robot and contrast the high-speed system with conventional vision to highlight the potential time savings and productivity advantages.
