Chuck, Missed this last year at Pack Expo. Would be interesting to see in person but video gives some idea of motions possible.

Ann, I agree with you that it's good to see a humanoid robot design used in the industrial market.  An interesting development area for sure.

Yes, that is the point this systems integrator was making. It all sounds really promising and if U.S. manufacturers can begin to adopt these technologies sooner rather than later, production will come back onshore even faster.

This is cool, Al, thanks for the report. I like the combination of different technologies, and that is good to see in the industrial end of robotics.

Good point on brining back offshored manufacturing, Elizabeth. You add the efficiency and optimization of the new technology to the fact that logistics costs are growing and labor costs in Asia are growing, and you have a recipe for re-shoring.

Great post, Al. I believe Yaskawa displayed a less advanced version of this robot at Pack Expo last year. Watching the video, the Robomotive robot's similarity to human movement is almost eerie.

Interesting post, Al. I just wrote about the increased use of 3D technology in the manufacturing space that's allowing for the type of advanced automation highlighted in this video. It's really making the process more efficient and cost-effective and, according to the systems integrator I spoke with, could help bring some of the manufacturing that's gone offshore back to N. America.
