Offering exceptionally fast and powerful operation for increased production throughput, the highly reliable four-axis PL190 and PL320 models now join the PL500 robot, enabling a wide range of palletizing applications, order picking and other logistical tasks. Ideal for end-of-line or distribution automation, PL-series robots are well-suited for a variety of industries, moving boxes and filling pallets with ease and precision.

The PL190 has a 190 kg payload capacity, and the PL320 has a 320 kg payload capacity. Each robot features a 3,159 mm horizontal reach, 3,024 mm vertical reach and ±0.05 repeatability.

A one-piece upper arm reduces mass and increases durability, while parallel-link construction for strength and heavy-duty bearings for smooth arm rotation support the handling of large, heavy payloads. A 75 mm T-axis pass-through facilitates easy connections to the end-of-arm tool, and its high moment of inertia ensures unbalanced loads are handled effectively. The PL190 and PL320 robots can be floor-mounted, and brakes are included on all axes.

Installation is quick and efficient. A single cable is all that is needed to connect the manipulator to the controller, resulting in easy setup and reduced expenses for maintenance and spare parts inventory. 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.

PL-series robots are controlled by the high-performance 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.

Fast and easy creation of palletizing patterns for virtually any mix of SKUs can be accomplished offline using PalletSolver software, enabling faster workcell deployment for even the most complex patterns.

MC Why Manufacturing Career Opportunities Will Soon Be Booming 1 400x275

A common misconception surrounds manufacturing today: the idea that introducing robotics and other automation equipment into the picture will rapidly dry up the industry’s career opportunities. In fact, automation does the opposite – by creating even MORE demand for human intelligence and ingenuity.

Building and maintaining the factory of the future requires capable individuals who enjoy solving problems and thrive on novelty. While the humdrum jobs of the past may be in short supply as they get transferred to robots, the installing, troubleshooting, and innovating tasks — essentially, the exciting ones — will be desperately in need of takers.

Furthermore, these jobs tend to be safer, pay better, and offer more opportunities for growth. Read on to find out how you can use your skills to thrive in today’s manufacturing job market.

 Have you ever wondered what it’s like to build the factory of the future? From fully autonomous mobile robots to human-like machine vision systems, the things that used to be “science fiction” are now real. What’s more, You can be working alongside them.

It’s obvious that opportunity will be knocking loudly at the door of anyone with a degree in engineering. But did you know that the automation industry also needs people who aren’t engineers? In fact, one of the job titles that’s poised to grow exponentially is automation technician, which you can do with just an associate degree or even a high school diploma.
