Hi-tech robotics lab uses Güdel TMO to extend robot work envelopes.
ANN ARBOR, MICHIGAN. Yaskawa Motoman’s Great Lakes Regional Center in Rochester Hills, Michigan has added a new Güdel TrackMotion Overhead (TMO) to its lab for demonstrations of cutting-edge robotics technology in various material handling and removal applications. By utilizing Güdel’s TMO, Motoman® robot work envelopes are extended. This is ideal for processes like material handling, material removal and welding.
“We appreciate that Yaskawa Motoman values Gudel enough to let us help equip their hi-tech robotics lab in Rochester Hills,” said Joe Campbell, Vice President, Gudel. “Güdel and Yaskawa Motoman work closely on projects that require linear motion for robots and this TMO was built during one of these collaborations.”
Both companies offer application engineering, training, customer service and sales support, both have locations in more than 20 countries, and both have more than 50 years of experience in their respective specialties.
“Yaskawa Motoman and Gudel engineering teams work closely together to create custom rails, and we also use their standard rails. Gudel rails provide extended robot reach for applications like multi-machine load / unload, large part deburring and arc welding, which is one of our largest industry niches,” said Roger Christian, Vice President Marketing & Development, Yaskawa Motoman. “We work with Güdel because of our common high quality standards and their willingness to modify their standard products for our specific needs.”
