Cartesian robots

Cartesian robots

Offering a full lineup of Cartesian robots that come with just the right performance and size to match user needs & ideal for diverse spectrum of job tasks.

XY-X Series

An electric actuator composed of 2 to 6 slide axes that are orthogonal to one another. Enhanced arm variations and functionalities ranging from a compact and low price arm to an arm applicable to the heavy object transfer and long distance transfer are available to respond to a wide variety of the customers’ needs.

This electric actuator is used in a wide variety of applications, such as assembly, machining, insertion, take-out, handling, and packaging of small precision machine components, automotive components, and electronic components for board mounting.



Uses a 4-row 2-point groove guide rail for superb durability!

The XY-X uses 4-row circular arc groove 2-point contact guides having minimal differential ball slip. These can handle large static loads when compared to 2-row Gothic arch 4-point contact guides and deliver a stable product service life even on Cartesian robots where a constant moment is applied.

Lightweight & compact

Ball screw drive motor is built directly into the unit with no coupling. This arrangement eliminates dead space and delivers a smaller unit footprint.

Tough & highly reliable resolver

The position detector is a resolver. The resolver has a simple yet strong structure using not electronic components or elements and so has great features such as being extremely tough in harsh environments as well as a low breakdown rate. The resolver structure has none of the detection problems that occur in other detectors such as optical encoders whose electronic components breakdown or suffer from moisture or oil that sticks to the disk. Moreover, mechanical specifications for both absolute and incremental specifications are common to all controllers Note 1 so one can switch to either absolute or incremental specifications just by setting a parameter. Also even if the absolute battery is completely worn down, the XY-X can operate on incremental specifications so in the unlikely event of trouble one can feel secure knowing that there will be no need to stop the production line. The backup circuit has been completely renovated and now has a backup period extending to 1 year.

Note 1. Not including the ERCD and RD series that are only for incremental operation.

Note 2. Exclude DRCX

Reasonable price

We achieved an even lower price by cutting down on the number of parts while boosting basic performance. Using a resolver in the structure helped to finally eliminate the "absolute units are expensive" idea. Moreover, the mechanical components are the same regardless of whether incremental or absolute unit specifications are used.

Supports double Y axis standard specs

The NXY with its nut rotation type structure supports a double Y axis where 2 carriers are placed along the same axis. The compact unit formed here by 2 Cartesian robots not only boosts work efficiency but saves space at a low cost.

Dual robot that drives two axes synchronously.

As the dual drive function of the RCX controller is applied, a dual robot suitable for the heavy object transfer or Y-axis with a long stroke can also be supported.

*Custom specifications

Custom specifications are supported.

Models applicable to combination, stroke, and pay load beyond the standards are supported through the custom specifications.
