What challenges are you facing for automation with industrila robot?

Are the challenges unique to the installation of robots a major hurdle in considering automation by industrial robots in order to solve labor shortages and improve productivity and quality?
We present the features and functions of Yaskawa’s collaborative robots that solve these challenges.

The fundamental problem of installing conventional industrial robots

There's not enough room for robots and safety fences
Customers want to ensure the safety of workers working near industrial robots.
The layout change after installing the industrial robot is tough
It's difficult to operate or teach a robot due to unfamiliarity with operating it.

A series of collaborative robots from Yaskawa6 major features

The six features that allow for collaborative work with humans solve the challenges of installing industrial robots.

Collaborative robots can be installed without safety fences.

Collaborative robots can be installed without safety fences*.

Yaskawa’s collaborative robot can be installed without a safety fence* thanks to its safety features.
This makes it easier to deploy the robot without the テスト日本語need to secure a wider space than conventional industrial robots.

* The collaborative robot HC series can be implemented without safety fences thanks to its safety features, however, risk assessment must be carried out in all cases.

Worker-friendly and safe design

Safety-conscious structure
By ensuring a gap in the robot arm, the shape of collaborative robot prevents the arms from being caught between each other. This reduces the risk of pinching by the robot arm.

Safety technology for collaborative work with workers
It has a number of functions as collaborative robot that allow workers to operate with confidence, such as a function for the robot to automatically stop when it comes in contact with or collides with a worker, and a function for the robot to automatically release and resolve pinching when a finger is pinched.

Safety functions for collaborative work

Reducing impact caused by contact with people or objectsPFL (Power and Force Limiting) function
This function stops a robot for safety when it comes into contact with a person or object and receives a certain level of force. It moves and stops to reduce the impact on people and objects when it comes in contact.
Pinch release function
Reducing the risk of injury or damage to propertyPinch release function
This function prevents people and objects from being pinched by robots.
When the robot detects a pinched condition, it moves away to eliminate the pinching, reducing the risk of injury or damage to property.
Easy to move when and where needed

Easy to move
when and where needed

The collaborative robot is not only fixed and operated in one place as a conventional industrial robot, but can be easily transported when and where needed. The layout of the production line can be flexibly adapted to the production situation.

with robot operation

Direct teaching function
Conventional teaching requires complicated setting processes, but with the collaborative robot HC series robots, even workers who are unfamiliar with robots can intuitively teach positions for robots using the direct teach function.


Easy to handle even if you are not familiar with robot operation

Direct teaching function by handDirect teach function
The collaborative robot HC series is equipped with a direct teach function. A worker can use this function to teach positions by directly moving the robot arm by hand.
Even people who are unfamiliar with robot operations can easily teach positions.
Smart Pendant
Learn how to teach simple movements in about 30 minutesSmart Pendant
The “Smart Pendant” is a tablet-like programming pendant that allows even beginners of robot operation to learn simple pick-and-place instruction in about 30 minutes.
Superior environmental resistance
