Robotics Continues to Evolve, Meeting New Challenges

Since Yaskawa Electric released the first electric industrial robot in Japan in 1988, the MOTOMAN, we have continued to lead the international industrial robot industry.



A wide range of industrial robots has been released since, especially in our core field of welding robots, but also for handling, assembly, painting and cleanroom applications. Today, they are hard at work around the world.


We were one of the first robotics companies to work on semiconductor manufacturing technology, and the development of mechatronic equipment led to the clean/vacuum robot and wafer handling deviced. We will continue to develop technology to answer the requirements of shrinking IC geometry and growing wafer size.
