e-News No.74: Happy New Year
January 01, 2022
Happy New Year!
Despite the continued corona pandemic, we received many purchase orders last year because of strong demand from the semiconductor industry and Chinese market. Due to the supply chain problem of semiconductor, electronics and plastic parts, we could not always satisfy customers’ requests. Although the situation is expected to continue this year, we will do utmost to cope with the problem. We would ask for your understanding and cooperation.
In December 2021, we established a joint venture company with Sony, “Remote Robotics, Inc.” and started a remote service platform using the Successor technology. Our Robot Business Division will start R&D of the dual-arm type self-travelling robot as a new platform, which combines autonomous technologies and remote operations. Demonstration experiments are already underway.
We will also develop a robot data platform in line with Kawasaki’s DX initiative so that we can change our business model. It will enable to provide SIers and users with continued services, and move forward to new fields of robotics in addition to the existing areas. As we are evolving to a fully integrated robot manufacturer, we would ask for your continued support.
