Since Yaskawa Electric was established, our spirit and drive for innovation has continued. For research and development, the research center that was originally started in 1921, cooperates with the research section of each business department. We try our best to develop new technology that is good for people and the earth with the creation of Eco-mechatronics.
The Research & Development Center is currently focusing on the following themes.
Next-Generation RT&MC System Technology for People
With the aging population and declining birthrate advancing at unprecedented rate in Japan, Japanese society is facing challenges including livelihood support for the growing elderly population and labor shortage. The Research & Development Center is committed to the development of advanced industrial robots as well as next-generation robotics technology such as livelihood-supporting robots coexisting with people.
New Mechanism & Motion Control Technology
Our aim is to create hight-value added products through conjugation and optimization of application based functions, and pursuing ultra-precision control technology.
Energy Saving & Power Conversion Technology
To lower environmental impact, there are two approaches we can take. One is to save energy; the other is to convert energy efficiently. We contribute to the environmental protection by making high-efficient mechatronics products for energy-saving effects and using power conversion technology.
