Yaskawa Motoman EPL80 Overview
The Yaskawa Motoman EPL80 NX100 is a five-axis robot specifically designed to handle automated palletizing applications. The EPL/80 is one of several robots comprising Yaskawa Motoman’s “Expert Palletizing” robot series. Featuring a payload capacity of 80 kg, this industrial robot is capable of palletizing medium weight workloads. Its 360-degree work envelope provides a wider range of motion. To further optimize its work envelope, the epl.80 can be mounted onto a riser. The EPL 80 is capable of servicing multiple infeed conveyors and a single pallet building site.
The fast-axial speeds of the Yaskawa Motoman EPL-80 improve throughput and cycle times. As a result, productivity significantly increases. Reliability is maximized with the EPL.80 since it is not constructed with parallel links in its lower or upper arm. This prevents interference and allows for consistent operation. This articulated robot in similar in payload and reach to the FANUC M710ic/70, the ABB 4600-60 and the KUKA KR 90.
Those looking for an automation solution for palletizing with limited floorspace will appreciate the Yaskawa Motoman epl80. Its compact design and slim wrist provide a small footprint that takes up minimal space. Its compactness makes it perfect for performing end-of-line palletizing tasks. This robot is also effective in robotic packaging and automated pick and place applications.
The EPL80 is paired with Yaskawa’s NX100 controller. The NX100 control system can operate up to four EPL 80 robots at once, streamlining operations. Path accuracy, vibration control, and simplified programming are some of the additional features that make this controller standout.
