MPP3 Delta Robot Preview

The new MPP3 delta-style robot will be introduced at Pack Expo. This 3-kg robot has a wide working range and is ideal for high-speed packaging, kitting and assembly applications. The MPP3 is controlled by the new FS100 controller.

FS100 Controller Preview

The new, compact FS100 controller will also be featured at Pack Expo. The FS100 is very small, powerful and features open software architecture.

Adaptive Gripper

The unique three-jaw Robotiq gripper offers four different gripping methods for a wide range of parts. In an application where a tool changer and multiple actuators are required, this gripper offers a cost-effective solution. The adaptive gripper is ideal for machine tending, kitting and other material handling processes.


MyMotoman remote monitoring service (previously known as VRMS) enables our customers to monitor their Motoman® robots remotely, providing a new level of visibility into their robot performance and utilization. Applications are available on the iPhone® and Blackberry®.
