Industrial robots

Cartesian robots (Application examples)

Introduces the applications of the Cartesian robots.


Examples of use with single axis and additional axis

Controlling Cartesian robot and single-axis robot with a single controller

Examples of use with single axis and additional axis
  • Multiple robots can be controlled simultaneously with one controller.
    The system can be expanded to up to two groups with eight axes.
  • Multiple robots are controlled with one controller, so cooperation can be established without a PLC or IO between controllers.

Examples of using long stroke dual drive

Dual drive control allows long stroke axes to be used with a Cartesian combination

Examples of using long stroke dual drive
  • A long stroke of up to approx. Y axis 2m is possible using the dual drive (2-axis synchronous) control.
  • This system supports long distance transfer and heavy loading capacity specifications.
  • The optimum mechanism combination and control method are proposed according to the required repeatability.

Part pick & place

Component pick & place from the index

Part pick & place
  • Parts identified on the index by the vision device are removed and sorted by the robot.
  • The vision device determines the type and position and issues the movement position to the robot.
  • In addition to pre-taught positions, the robot can move to a position randomly imported from an external device.
  • RS-232C, Ethernet or field buses such as CC-Link can be selected for controller communication.

Process-to-process transfer using dual-drive

Uses dual-drive to convey large and heavy workpieces.

Process-to-process transfer using dual-drive
  • Dual-drive is a function that synchronizes and moves two single-axis robots of the same type.
  • Even heavy items, or parts and products of different sizes can be transferred using this dual-drive function.
  • This function improves acceleration and is effective for reducing cycle time.

Part assembly system

Vehicle clutch assembly
Two types of parts are alternately assembled at a high efficiency

Part assembly system
  • The dual arm save space and reduces the cycle time.
  • Dual-arm specifications can be selected as a standard.
  • Either left or right can be selected individually for the Y-axis and Z-axis stroke (special order).
  • The nut-rotation type X axis also supports long strokes, and maintains the maximum speed.

Conveyor (2 parts simultaneously)

Conveyance with high efficiency using double arms.

Conveyor (2 parts simultaneously)
  • Setting 2 units on the Z axis intersecting XZ drastically cuts the total tact time and reduces the required installation space.
  • Customization only possible because a highly rigid frame and guide are used.

Application of adhesive agent

Application of adhesive agent within a large size liquid crystal surface processing unit.

Application of adhesive agent
  • Capable of handling large size workpieces.
  • Also applicable to cutting work with a cutter, surface check with a camera, etc.

IC palletizing within the unit

ICs are taken out of the pallet and parts are transferred to the specified place by the XYZ Cartesian robot.
Application as a part of the machine used in the process where a die is attached to the circuit board using thermocompression bonding in the manufacture of semi conductors.

IC palletizing within the unit
  • By using the RCX controller, it is possible to use the result of the operation based on variables during palletizing.

Tester (2 Cartesian robots controlled simultaneously)

Use as a tester in the post process of manufacturing electronic parts.

Tester (2 Cartesian robots controlled simultaneously)
  • 2 units of SXYx are operated using 1 unit of RCX340 with settings for 2 robots.
  • The vertical traveling accuracy of XY axes of both 2 units of SXYx is within +/ 0.05mm.


Spreading sealant to mating faces of the cases.

  • Three dimensional application using 3 axes Cartesian robot.
    Cartesian robot incorporated with special purpose machine.

Transfer and stacking device within the unit

Used in the sheet metal processing unit.

Transfer and stacking device within the unit
  • X1 and X2 axes are superposed for space efficiency.
  • The unit layout is easy even for the doubled stroke.


Spreading adhesive agent to drums.

  • Boosting the R axis strength allows 3 dimensional interpolation + R operation.
  • Each axis has high rigidity and so can easily withstand harsh conditions such as on the moving arm (handles 100mm/sec).

Insertion unit (Tare weight cancellation using moving Z + air balancer)

Heavy workpiece inserted in the pallet, etc.
Heavy workpiece before processing set in the processing machine.

Insertion unit (Tare weight cancellation using moving Z + air balancer)
  • Z axis moving type: The heavy workpiece is cancelled by the air balancer and moved up and down.

Assembler & tester base machine (Simultaneous operation at upper and lower levels)

Tester (upper and lower probes, camera with lighting) .
Precision spot welding machine. Simultaneous assembly at upper and lower levels (caulking parts, screw tightening) .

Assembler & tester base machine (Simultaneous operation at upper and lower levels)
  • Simultaneous control of 2 Cartesian robots.
  • Levelness of upper and lower robots assured (custom specification) .
