More than 2.7 million * industrial robots are in operation around the world * as indispensable equipment for the production of automobiles, home appliances, PCs, smartphones, and other products in factories and other places that are rarely seen in everyday life. Yaskawa announced the Japan’s first all-electric industrial robot under the brand name MOTOMAN in 1977, and since then we have shipped nearly 500,000 units all over the world.

Yaskawa develops and optimizes servo motors which are the main components of industrial robots MOTOMAN by ourselves. Aside from control software technology that maximizes this capability, we are developing industrial robots by integrating application technology that realizes optimum structures and functions for applications such as welding and painting.
In response to current trends such as IoT, Industrie 4.0, and artificial intelligence (AI), Yaskawa is promoting i³-Mechatronics as a solution concept for realizing a new industrial automation revolution. Yaskawa’s industrial robots are the core products to realize this concept. By collecting, accumulating, and analyzing the state of the servo motors that make up the body and the results of operations, they contribute to improving productivity and quality through the stable operation of facilities and lines at customers’ production sites.
Besides automobiles, Yaskawa’s industrial robots are now used in a wide range of industries, including electric and electronic equipment, semiconductor manufacturing, biomedical, food, medical products, logistics and so on. Let us introduce what kind of robots are active in each industry.
