Kawasaki Heavy Industries Ltd. Launches Dual-Arm Industrial Robot
Jun 3 15
Kawasaki Heavy Industries Ltd. launched the duAro dual-arm industrial robot, mainly for small and medium-sized firms suffering from labor shortages. A duAro robot requires only about half the costs and space needed to introduce two conventional one-arm robots. The space-saving robot allows users to introduce the machine without changing production lines very much. The robot can be operated safely even if it is placed beside factory workers. The multiple-joint robot that is easy to program is good for the production of electronic, food and pharmaceutical products that go through changeovers frequently, officials said, anticipating demand from the industries.
