Kawasaki Robotics Launches Redesigned Website with Intuitive

User-Friendly Navigation and Architecture

Wixom, Michigan, USA - Kawasaki Robotics (USA), Inc. is proud to announce the launch of a redesigned website that offers added functionality and a superior user experience. The new site boasts a brand-new look and feel as well as an updated architecture and navigation framework that makes it even easier for users to find relevant content and engage with Kawasaki's team.


Kawasaki's website redesign aims to enhance every aspect of the user's experience, from information-gathering through sale interactions and ongoing product support. Product information that was previously available for download in PDF form has been added to the main body of the site, dramatically reducing the time and effort needed to find top-level content and detailed information about the company's offerings. In addition to improving the online search visibility of Kawasaki's products, this initiative improves the experience of smartphone and tablet users who wish to view specifications and other details.

To further improve the ease with which prospective buyers navigate the redesigned website, Kawasaki has created a new architecture that intuitively organizes the company's products, solutions and services to deliver key information to time-pressed users. Three well-defined buyer paths promise to assist buyers searching for applicable products as well as those looking for industry- or application-specific offerings.

For experienced clients, a robot search feature is available on every page of the website to assist with quick product lookups and easy product comparisons using high-level mechanical specifications and/or application criteria. Additionally, each page of the new site now has complete "share" functionality through Twitter, Facebook, Google Plus and LinkedIn. With these tools, users can easily connect their colleagues and partners with relevant Kawasaki products.

"We began the website overhaul with several key objectives in mind," said Yanik Van Coppenolle, Marketing Manager, Kawasaki Robotics (USA), Inc. "Chief among these objectives was making it easy for prospective buyers and existing customers to search for the products and information they need. We are thrilled with the redesign and feel that visitors will really appreciate the ease and functionality it offers."

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
