Orbit type YK350TW/YK500TW Overview

What is Orbit type YK350TW/YK500TW?

Resolves the shortcomings of previous SCARA and parallel-link robots. Offers both superior positioning accuracy and high speed. YAMAHA'S Next-Generation SCARA Robot: The YK-TW Omnidirectional

01 User: We want a smaller equipment footprint. Layout design freedom


The YK-TW can move anywhere through the full 1000 mm* downward range.

Featuring a ceiling-mount configuration with a wide arm rotation angle, the YK-TW can access any point within the full 1000 mm downward range. This eliminates all motion-related restrictions with regard to pallet and conveyor placement operations, while dramatically reducing the equipment footprint.

Improvement of productivity

The standard cycle time for moving 1-kg load horizontally 300 mm and up/down 25 mm is shortened by approximately 36 % compared to existing YAMAHA models.

* Measurement may vary depending on conditions.

02 User: We want a higher quality assembly system. Higher quality


The YK-TW offers a repeated positioning accuracy of +/-0.01 mm* (XY axes).

This is a much higher repeated positioning accuracy than that offered by a parallel-link robot. This was accomplished by optimizing the robot's weight balance through an extensive re-design of its internal construction. The lightweight yet highly rigid arm has also been fitted with optimally tuned motors to enable high accuracy positioning.

03 User: We need to reduce our tact times. Higher productivity

The YK-TW offers a standard cycle time of 0.29 secs*

The Y-axis (arm 2) passes beneath the X-axis (arm 1) and it has a horizontal articulated structure, allowing it to move along the optimal path between points. Moreover, the optimized weight balance of the internal components reduces the cycle time by 36 % as compared to previous models.

YK500TW

The standard cycle time for moving a 1-kg load horizontally 300 mm and up/down 25 mm is shortened by approx. 36 % compared to previous YAMAHA models.


04 User: We need to move heavy workpieces at high speeds. Suitable for a wide range of applications


The YK-TW can handle workpieces weighing up to 5 kg.

Handles loads up to 5 kg. Also accommodates arm-end tools which tend to be heavy, making it highly adaptable to various applications.


05 User: We want to reduce the height of our equipment. Smaller equipment footprint


The YK-TW offers both a low height and a small footprint.

The YK-TW height is only 392 mm. This compact size enables more freedom in the equipment layout design.

06 User: Parallel-link robots require large frames which complicate installation… Easy installation

The YK-TW has a total height of only 392 mm, and weighs only 27 kg*. Due to its low inertia, a sturdy frame is not required.

* Applies to the YK500TW

Easy installation

An optional dedicated installation frame is available for the YK-TW. For details, contact a YAMAHA sales representative.

07 Preparing an installation stand is too much bother. A dedicated stand is available

Setup can be simplified

As an option, we provide a dedicated installation stand for the YK-TW.* There's no need to calculate strength, so setup can be simplified.

* Contact Yamaha for details on dimensions and price.

08 User: Operating our equipment in stringent environments is worrisome… Environment resistant
The YK-TW features the same type of resolver as those used in hybrid automobiles and aircraft.

This resolver is a magnetic position sensor. It features a simple construction with no electronic or optical parts, making it far less susceptible to failure than conventional optical encoders. It is this superior environment resistance and low failure rate that makes it reliable enough for use in many fields such as hybrid automobiles and aircraft, etc., where reliability is essential.
