Robotics Evolves by Taking up New Challenges
We have led the world’s industrial robot market since the first release of the all-electric industrial robot “MOTOMAN” in Japan in 1977.
Since that time, we have successively commercialized and marketed optimum robots for various uses, centering on arc welding, one of our areas of expertise, and including spot welding, handling, assembly, painting, transfer of liquid crystal panels, and transfer of semiconductor wafers. Recently, we have been enhancing our efforts in the food, pharmaceutical, cosmetic, and biomedical markets. Also, we continue to take on new challenges in further expand the fields where robots are applied.
