High-speed SCARA Robot: IXA Series
IAI introduces one of the industry's fastest SCARA robots, the new IXA Series of high-performance SCARA robots. The series includes standard and high-speed types with arm lengths from 180 to 1,200 mm.
The new IXA SCARA robots offer better performance and functionality compard to previous types. With the free IXA simulation software, customers can check the SCARA movements without real robot use and measure the cycle time quickly and easily.
At a glance:
► Fast cycle times
► Low vibration, accurate positioning
► Equipped with a battery-less Absolute Encoder
► Simulation software available
Fast cycle times
Standard cycle time
High-speed type (IXA-NSN): 0.26s
Standard type (IXA-NNN): 0.38s
Continuous cycle time
High-speed type (IXA-NSN): 0.45s
Standard type (IXA-NNN): 0.55s
The following measurements were taken during arch motion cycle operation under the following conditions and operation setting.
► 2 kg transport
► Horizontal movement: 300mm
► Vertical movement: 25mm
Low vibration, accurate positioning
Higher rigidity and optimized control mean significantly less vibration during stopping.
► Payload: 2kg
► Cycle time: IXA-4NSN4518: 0.26s | IX-NSN5016H25: 0.29s
Mechanical structure and features
The IXA SCARA robot has unique mechanical features, some of which are patent pending.
► Fully covered structure
The operating part is covered for improved dust-proofing.
► Double arm structure (Patent pending)
Improved rigidity for less vibration. Heat dissipation has been improved for shorter continuous cycle times.
► Built-in cables (Patent pending)
Cables are built in for reduced height and effective use of space.
Equipped with a battery-free absolute encoder
There is no need to replace batteries and less maintenance.
Advantages of battery-free absolute encoder:
► The machine will no longer stop due to battery error (voltage drop, etc.).
► There is no need to purchase replacement batteries.
► No tiresome battery replacement or absolute reset.
IXA Simulation Software
With this PC program, SCARA movements can be checked without the need for real robots. In addition, the cycle time can be measured easily.
The prerequisite for this is that customers have already purchased and installed the SEL software (from version 14.00.00.00) for programming controllers. On the following page you can download the IXA simulation software.
