Yaskawa Motoman industrial robots and robotics automation systems

Drop-Center and Tilt-Rotate Positioners

Multi-axis positioners provide added application flexibility. Many provide two axes, allowing most welding to be done in the optimum position, thereby increasing travel speeds. Motoman software supports the coordination of both axes with robot motion.
