RobotShop Continues Expansion and Launches Japan Subsidiary

RobotShop Inc. announces today the launch of its subsidiary, RobotShop Japan Co., Ltd. and a website dedicated to the Japan market.

RobotShop Inc. announces that it officially begins operations in Japan by launching a logistics center in the territory as well as a dedicated website.

RobotShop offers unique products in the field of domestic and professional robotics via localized websites in the spoken languages and major currencies used in the targeted regions. These regional websites offer quick and affordable shipping options, supported by optimized logistics, involving one or more territory specific warehouses. RobotShop already serves Canada, the United States, the 27 countries of the European Union and now Japan. Customers around the world without a dedicated logistics center can still be cared for by one of RobotShop's websites based on their proximity.
"Japan is a key market for robotics." Said Mario Tremblay, RobotShop CEO. "This sector is a priority for the Japanese government and several Japanese companies. Therefore we have now, not only a logistics base to better serve our customers in Asia, but also a base for surveillance and innovation to better follow market developments in that part of the world."
RobotShop's websites offer a great variety of advanced functionalities in order to provide an excellent customer/user shopping experience. RobotShop pays particular attention to the technological development of its e-commerce platform and its internal processes in order to continually improve user experience and service offered to its customers.
"Here in Japan, we have already entered the era where robotics is no longer solely mechanical slaves for the industry, but servants of all." Says Yves Lacroix, Director of RobotShop Japan. "Robots no longer wait for our orders but judge how best to serve us, and are part of our daily lives. With this theme, RobotShop Japan stands out and creates an important link with the rest of the innovative world of robotics. Japanese novelty will now be powered by RobotShop!"

ST Robotics - R17HS-6, the 6-axis version of the high speed R17 variant

The 6-axis version of the R17HS high speed variant of the R17 robot is now available. As is our policy the 6th axis is an optional bolt-on module. At the same time we have made it even faster and new software eliminates shake and greatly improves repeatability as this video shows. Please see The video would seem to imply a repeatability of 0.01mm but we are sticking with 0.2mm in the spec. The motor specialist was able to tune the motors from the other side of the pond. My first reaction when we put power on and entered the first commands was to jump back in amazement (and maybe an expletive). Tip speed is now 3m/s; that's 3 times as fast as its nearest competitor yet costs half the price. I love it when a plan comes together.
