Where automation and robotic applications require high speed and accuracy the robust, fast, horizontally articulated YASKAWA MOTOMAN SG-Series Scara Robotsare ideal. With the highest operating performance in their class, SG-series SCARA robots enable extremely fast and precise operation for small part processing in applications such as picking, packing, dispensing and handling of small components, especially in confined spaces.

Automation continues to make an important contribution in helping manufacturing and general industry improve productivity and reduce costs and the introduction of the SG-Series of robots will help to continue this trend, particularly where demand is increasing in sectors such as food, medical and cosmetics.

Two options are available, the SG400 with a payload capacity of 3kg and a maximum reach of 400mm and the SG650 offering a payload capacity of 6kg and a maximum reach of 650mm. They feature small interference contours which allow the robots to work together while the internal cabling ensures a reliable workflow and reduces maintenance. 

Yaskawa has a well-established range of cost effective robots for a wide range of applications including the smaller MotoMINI, GP Series and the HC Series. Part of the thinking behind the design concept of the SG Series was to combine the proven features and benefits of these into an even more compact, yet robust horizontal articulated scara SG Series.

The SG Series are driven by the compact and lightweight YRC-1000 micro controller for small Motoman robots providing high performance robot control in a small footprint cabinet which is optimized for smaller pick and place, assembly applications.  More details at:
