Yaskawa Celebrates a Century

Apr 29, 2015

Motoman is part of a larger company called Yaskawa and is proud to celebrate a century in business. Celebrating a milestone like this provides the opportunity to reflect on values and offer huge advancements to production lines across the globe based on their experience. Motoman robotics will continue to demonstrate the same passion and innovation for automation over the next 100 years and more!


Motoman Robot­ics is a name known far and wide in the robot­ics indus­try. But, did you know that Motoman is only part of a larg­er com­pa­ny called Yaskawa? The Yaskawa Elec­tric Cor­po­ra­tion has been alive and well since it was found­ed in Japan in 1915. Yaskawa has tak­en the 100-year anniver­sary as a time to reflect on its accom­plish­ments, while also mov­ing into the future, releas­ing its new cor­po­rate logo this year at Auto­mate 2015

Cel­e­brat­ing our 100 year anniver­sary pro­vides an oppor­tu­ni­ty to reflect on the val­ues that have made us suc­cess­ful,” stat­ed Jun­ji Tsu­da in a press release on Motoman​.com. Tsu­da is the rep­re­sen­ta­tive direc­tor, chair­man, and pres­i­dent of Yaskawa. These val­ues include offer­ing their cus­tomers inno­v­a­tive prod­ucts that con­tin­ue to push the bound­aries in their respec­tive fields. Some of these tech­no­log­i­cal advances include a super syn­chro­nous motor, min­er­tia motor, and the Motoman L10 robot, accord­ing to the press release.

While Yaskawa began as a min­ing equip­ment pro­duc­er for Daig­oro Yasukawa in 1915, it has grown into a mas­sive inter­na­tion­al com­pa­ny with 28 loca­tions across the globe. As a pro­duc­er of a vari­ety of dri­ve, motion, and switch elec­tron­ic prod­ucts, it makes sense that as robot­ic tech­nol­o­gy began to appear, the com­pa­ny would even­tu­al­ly begin to build them as well.

Yaskawa Motoman began oper­a­tion in 1989, and offers a wide range of robots that can per­form vir­tu­al­ly any robot­ic appli­ca­tion. Like any proud par­ent, Yaskawa Elec­tric Cor­po­ra­tion has watched Motoman grow over the years, demon­strat­ing a con­tin­ued pas­sion for automa­tion and con­tin­u­ing to be one of the largest man­u­fac­tur­ers of indus­tri­al robot­ics worldwide.
