Robot Industry Surging Full Speed Ahead

Tuesday, August 9, 2005
 
The robotic-automation business is good—so good that Yaskawa Electric Corp., Kitakyushu, Japan (parent company to Motoman Inc., West Carrollton, OH) is building a new robot factory to expand production capabilities. The new 100,000-sq.-ft. facility in Kitakyusha will manufacture, beginning in November 2005, medium- to large-sized robots for resistance welding, material handling and painting. It expands Yaskawa’s production capacity to 2000 robots/month.
