Yushin Unveils Concept Robot at NPE 2015
April 6, 2015
Yushin has pooled their four decades of experience in the fields of industrial automation and robotics to create this exceptional Cartesian full-servo robot. Unveiled to the attendees at NPE 2015, this robot captivated the crowds that studied the cooperative and collaborative motions of the 16 servo axes.
Designed to work in conjunction with a standard take-out robot or as a stand-alone product, this unique design is well suited for assembly, packaging and other secondary operations. The dual arms are angled toward each other to maximize the robot’s cooperative abilities and somewhat mimic human arms for task collaboration. Strokes and payloads can be configured to match any combination of the many configurations of Yushin’s standard robots.
The single controller offers synchronous cooperative axes of motion, including full integration with auxiliary downstream equipment. Each axis can be programmed to function independently or in combinations of axes. The programming language is also new. It is a text-based program that will be an easy transition from Yushin’s FLX programming software. Users will find its intuitive structure a welcome change from the complex challenges of articulated robots.
Abilities of this robot range from increasing the overall payload capacity of each arm by working as a pair to lift and manipulate heavy objects, to eliminating the need for stationary, dedicated nests by permitting “on-the-fly” handoff from one hand to another.
Booth visitors offered many uses of this show-stopping product. Possible uses included secondary operations pre- and/or post-injection molding; integration with extrusion applications; fast adaptability for degating or finishing operations; machine tending in woodworking applications; and many, many more.

Official introduction of Yushin’s Concept Robot to NPE 2015
On behalf of the entire world-wide Yushin team, welcome to Yushin’s exhibit at SPI’s NPE 2015. This year, Yushin is exhibiting more robots than at any previous show in the Americas. Including our booth and with many partners exhibiting here, we have 25 robots running real-life applications. Applications range from our extremely popular toy robot, to a very innovative 5-gallon bucket, to micro-molding a miniature gear.
For over 41 years, the Yushin organization has worked tirelessly to offer the most reliable, well-built products that the markets require. Today, I am proud to introduce the President our parent corporation, Mrs. Kotani of Yushin Precision Equipment. Under Mrs. Kotani’s leadership, we have produced the most exciting product to date.
Yushin’s goals are not to simply provide solutions to today’s challenges, but to find new challenges and opportunities and offer to apply new solutions. But how can those opportunities be identified? They can be cultivated by offering something new; something that allows you to look at an opportunity from a whole new direction.
That something new, is Yushin’s Concept Robot. Mrs. Kotani will cut our symbolic ribbon to unveil our innovative concept product. Click here to watch the unveiling
