Yaskawa Motoman has released its PL80 industrial robot arm. Yaskawa said the PL80 is designed for a variety of palletizing applications, order picking and other logistical tasks for end-of-line or distribution automation.

Featuring an 176 lb (80 kg) payload capacity, the PL80 robot offers a 81.1 inch (2,061 mm) horizontal reach, 129.5 inch (3,291 mm) vertical reach and 0.03 mm repeatability. The PL80 robot has an IP67-rated wrist and an IP54 body as standard.

Yaskawa said a single cable is all that is needed to connect the manipulator to the controller. Airlines and cables are routed internally from the base to the end-of-arm tool to maximize reliability, and a cable installation tube facilitates fieldbus routing to the upper arm and/or gripper.

The PL80 can be floor-mounted, and brakes are included on all axes. The robot is controlled by the YRC1000 controller that is built to a global standard and does not require a transformer for input voltages ranging from 380AC to 480VAC. With a highly compact cabinet (598 W x 490 H x 427 D mm), the YRC1000 uses a lightweight teach pendant with intuitive programming.
