Yaskawa is the Global Leader in Robotic Welding

Over 25 Years of innovative welding automation

Arc welding is the core of our company. Over three decades we have developed more application-specific robots than any other company. Our welding process knowledge and path control leads the industry - resulting in expert project support and the development of robotic technology that tackles your most common welding challenges.

With our comprehensive line of arc welding robots, integrated power sources, torches and peripherals, and our extensive family of fully integrated ArcWorld welding cells, we provide building block solutions that are simple to integrate and operate. 

Integrated with leading arc welding power sources

Fabricators looking into robotics don't have to give up the power to use their own source. While other robot brands limit their compatible welding power supply options, Yaskawa Motoman provides high-level digital interfaces for the widest range of power source brands including Fronius, Miller, Lincoln Electric and SKS. With our integrated digital interface, the power source weld parameters can be monitored and adjusted directly from the robot programming pendant.

Automate your biggest welding challenges

Robotic welding solutions from Yaskawa Motoman have delivered game-changing results for clients of all sizes. We've enabled Tier 1 automotive suppliers to produce high-volume parts with unprecedented speed and efficiency. We've helped construction machinery manufacturers create their heaviest-duty parts with ease. And, we've equipped job shops with flexible, cost-effective solutions that adapt easily to shifting market needs. Whatever your requirements or challenges, we can configure the ideal solution.

Add flexibility with pre-engineered weld stations

In most cases, a standard ArcWorld® workcell is a prefect fit. Whether you're producing small or large parts, prefer a process-to-part or part-to-process approach, or even need multiple robot control, Yaskawa Motoman has the solution.

Motoman Arc Welding Robots

Motoman MA-series arc welding robot

Yaskawa Motoman continues to lead welding robot design innovation, with industry-first features that make Motoman welding robots the preferred choice for precision, durability and flexibility.

The integrated through-the-arm cabling in the MA-series robots improves weld accuracy, torch access and uptime.  Yaskawa Motoman backs the performance of the MA-series arc welding robots with the industry's first two-year torch cable warranty.  Yaskawa Motoman offers extended-reach (>3.0-m) welding robotis including the MA3120. and MA50-20 models.

The first 7-axis robotic welder

In response to our customers' needs for more efficient space utilization, we developed the first 7-axis robot welder - the VA1400. The flexibility of the Motoman VA series arc welding robot reduces floorspace and accommodates multiple welding robots in a single cell. The unique "elbow" axis of the welding arm reaches around tall parts, into boxy parts, and other places an external axis would normally be needed. Contact a Yaskawa Motoman robotics specialist
