A dual-arm SDA10D robot played an important role in Motoman Robotics' groundbreaking ceremony August 13th. "Dexter Bot" wore a hardhat for the occasion and had the honor of scooping the first shovelful of dirt.
RobotWorx' manufacturing partner, Motoman Robotics, is moving to a new location. The Motoman Robotics Division of Yaskawa America Inc. has begun building a 300,000 facility just south of Dayton in Miamisburg, Ohio.
Motoman's current headquarters in West Carrollton, Ohio and a manufacturing plant in Troy, Ohio will both relocate to the new site. The new Miamisburg, Ohio location (Austin Blvd/I-75 interchange - exit 41) will serve as Motoman's center of operations for North and South America.
Located on 25 acres of land, the new Motoman facility will initially employ 250-275 workers. The company has plans to expand its workforce in the future. Construction is expected to last 10 months. Motoman anticipates a move by June 2011.
RobotWorx, a Motoman Solution Provider will remain within driving distance to the new Motoman Robotics facility. RobotWorx offers the full Motoman product line, plus reconditioned Motoman models, workcell integration and support.
