Robotiq and Motoman Robotics Division of Yaskawa America, Inc., today announce a partnership between the two companies. What it means for customers is that they'll be able to buy a robot and the Adaptive Gripper from Motoman as a single-source. It also means that the folks at Motoman will be skilled at integrating the gripper to enable the automation of applications and tasks that were, up until now, requiring either human dexterity or a large amount of custom tooling.

We are very pleased with this partnership as Motoman has offered great advice and acted as a true partner when our gripper was in Beta up through commercialization and now at the launch of this partnership. It has been interesting to be a part of watching how a large company like Motoman has a strong internal focus to continuously bring new technologies to market to fully leverage their extensive robot range.
