Over 25 years of innovative welding automation

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 system payback calculatorAdd flexibility with pre-engineered weld stations. 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.

In most cases, a standard ArcWorld® workcell is a perfect 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 welding robots including the MA3120 and AR2010 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 VA1400 and VA1400 II arc welding robots reduces floorspace requirements 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.
