MLX100 Robot Gateway™. Visit us at booth #1131. Register now!
New! MH3BM Robot
The new MH3BM robot is designed for compact, lighter payload applications such as clean room assembly, drug development, clinical testing and pharmaceutical dispensing. It is compatible with the FS100 controller, which features open software architecture.
New! STEM Robotics Platform
The new STEM Robotics Platform was developed to provide community colleges, vocational schools and technical colleges with the best possible equipment for teaching industrial robotics.
The 6-axis ES200TD robot offers a 200 kg (441 lb) payload to provide superior performance in machine and press tending, and other heavy-payload applications. Its compact, slim design allows it to reach into confined spaces, improving system productivity. The ceiling-mounted ES200TD saves valuable floorspace; floor- and shelf-mounted models are also available.
National Robotics Week Sessions
National Robotics Week is scheduled for April 6-14, 2013. To celebrate the event, Yaskawa Motoman will again be hosting tour groups from local high schools, community colleges and universities. Students will have the opportunity to see live demonstrations of robot systems and talk to engineers and technicians.
How Automation Makes Best Use of Talent
A high-product-mix manufacturer chooses robotic bending not because it lacked a skilled workforce, but because it wanted to make the best use of the talented workforce it already had.
