Robot vision iVY2 (RCX320 / RCX340)

A robot-integrated vision system that only the robot manufacturer Yamaha could create. Robot integration provides overwhelming ease of use.

"plug-and-play" simplicity
Yamaha's own unique solution for integrated robot vision

  •  Supported controllers: RCX340
  •  Number of screen pixels: 300,000 pixels / 1,300,000 pixels / 5,000,000 pixels
  •  Model setting capacuiy: 254 models








Easy to use, and reduces the number of steps


Adding "eyes" to a robot significantly expands the range of applications.




Various application examples



Labeling device (affixing labels to food packages)

  • Industry: food
  • Robot used: YK500TW omnidirectional robot
  • ADVANTAGE: Even if the incoming workpieces are irregularly spaced or positioned, labels can be affixed at the same position.



Sealant touch-up (engine block sealant)

  • Industry: automotive
  • Robot used: SXYX Cartesian robot
  • ADVANTAGE: Even if the workpiece is skewed from its correct position, the skew and angle are detected, and the application path is automatically compensated.



Screw attachment position detection (television panel screw attachment)

  • Industry: electronics
  • Robot used: NXY Cartesian robot
  • ADVANTAGE: Hole position is detected, and screws are fastened accurately.



Position compensation with upward-facing camera (installing irregularly-shaped parts on a circuit board)

  • Industry: electronics
  • Robot used: YK150XG SCARA robot
  • ADVANTAGE: The roughly-positioned circuit board connector is picked up, the upward-facing camera is used to apply position compensation, and the part is mounted directly on the circuit board.



Simplicity Our goal: "A vision system that anyone can use easily, even for the first time"


01 Auto-calibration Requires as little as 5 minutes  

Easily complete high-precision calibration just by following a wizard! Even if equipment becomes misaligned, execute auto-calibration and resume operation.




02 Easy workpiece registration Requires as little as 3 minutes  

From image acquisition, registration takes just three steps.




03 No need to make time-consuming connection settings. Dramatic reduction in setup time.  

Comparison of setup time




04 No need to create a coordinate conversion program.  

Dedicated robot language for vision is provided




05 Easy inter-operation with peripheral equipment.  

The same controller provides unified control of robot, gripper, and lighting




06 Also supports moving camera.  

Even if the camera is mounted on the robot, coordinates are automatically converted according to the robot's movement




Sophistication Megapixel camera supports high precision and wide field of vision. Conveyor tracking reaches 100 CPM.


01 Conveyor tracking  

Ideal for "high-speed packaging" "arrangement" "high-speed transport of multiple types of items" such as pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, and food products.

The vision camera detects the position and orientation of parts moving on the conveyor, and the robot picks them up.



02 Control multiple robots for even more improvement in production efficiency.  



03 Approximately double the search speed (compared to previous model)  


Even numerous workpieces can be detected at high speed The search speed is approximately double that

The search speed is approximately double that of the previous model. Even a large number of workpieces can be detected at high speed. This can be used for a wide variety of applications, including molded plastic parts or food items.










04 Support for five-megapixel cameras  

(Choose from 300,000 pixel, 1.3 megapixel, and 2 megapixel, and 5 megapixel)



05 Support for five-megapixel cameras  


Detailed edge detection is possible even if workpieces are touching each other or have a complex shape.



06 Decreased number of search detections  


A single search allows detection even for a large workpiece, improving takt.



07 254 types can be registered  


Setup changes are easy
Setup changes require only that part numbers be changed.



08 Monitor output is provided  


Monitor the operating status

Monitor the search status while making calibration settings or during automatic operation.

Contents of output

  •  Selected type / Captured image
  •  Search result (position, score, scale)
  •  Executed command
  •  Time required by command

Output method

DVI-I (supports digital monitor or analog monitor)




09 High-precision search even under low light  


Edge search engine is built-in

Supports a variety of applications while being minimally affected by the external environment.




Assurance You have the assurance of support that can be provided only by Yamaha, the robot manufacturer. You can rely on us both before installation and after installation


01 Preparatory evaluation and advice give you peace of mind  


We borrow the workpiece from you, evaluate it, and submit an evaluation report. In addition, we draw on our wealth of experience and evaluation results to provide advice and training regarding selection and installation of robots and peripheral equipment.



02 Choose freely from Yamaha's lineup of robots  


A low-cost and convenient robot vision system can be constructed using the models that are optimal for the customer's application.
