YC/YCⅡ：Standard Take-out Robots
Optimum design robots YC/YCII series
Optimally designed through joint research with Kyoto University
Optimum Design is what Yushin calls its use of CAE (Computer—Aided Engineering) to determine the theoretically best configuration of a robot based on its mechanisms and movements. This approach has been used in recent years to make aircraft and automobiles lighter and more reliable. Yushin applied this approach to reduce the weight and control the vibrations of the YC series. As a result, power consumption and settling time have been respectively reduced by 26% and 72%, which puts users in position to improve their productivity.
Energy-savings 26% less power consumed than by predecessor robots
Because robot weight reduces by applying Optimum Design approach, lower duty motors are used.
Energy-savings 75% less air consumed than by predecessor robots
Air consumption has been reduced by 75% from predecessor models by incorporating Yushin’s propriety ECO Vacuum circuit as a standard feature.
Vibration control72% shorter settling time than predecessor robots
With the YC series, Optimum Design, CFRP and anti-vibration controls combine to shorten settling time (time required for vibrations to fall below a desired level) by 72%, which naturally shortens the full molding cycle.
Greater conveniencePredictive maintenance system and other new useful features for molding plants
The E-Touch Compact-YC is an easy-to-operate controller that can be carried in one hand. It incorporates a 7.5-inch full color touch panel of high visibility and a predictive maintenance system that displays warning messages if conditions that can develop into trouble are detected.
Winner of the JSME Technology Award
In 2011, Yushin was honored with the prestigious Technology Award of the Japan Society of Mechanical Engineers (JSME) for “developing high-performance take-out robots for molding machines by structural optimization”.
Winner of the JMF President’s Award for Energy Efficiency
In 2012, Yushin’s YC series of take-out robots for injection molding machine was recognized by the Japan Machinery Federation (JMF) with the JMF President’s Award at their Energy Efficient Machine Awards for the air consumption and weight reductions achieved through Optimum Design.
