Yaskawa Europe teamed up with RoboticsX to further enhance the Industrie 4.0 solution YASKAWA Cockpit

The new „YASKAWA Cockpit” – the core of YASKAWAs i3-Mechatronics Industrie 4.0 solution for Robotics, Drives, Motion and Control products has been shown to the public for the first time at Hannover Fair 2018.

The new „YASKAWA Cockpit" - the core of YASKAWAs i3-Mechatronics Industrie 4.0 solution for Robotics, Drives, Motion and Control products has been shown to the public for the first time at Hannover Fair 2018. RoboticsX, a young German High-Tech company supported YASKAWA for engineering and software development of the new YASKAWA Cockpit.


The knowledge of YASKAWAs robots, the protocols, software and intelligence made RoboticsX the ideal partner for enhancing the YASKAWA Cockpit. The YASKAWA Cockpit represents a holistic approach for controlling, managing and resolving events at a factory level. Asset Management, Predictive Maintenance, Alarms and Event Handling, Quality and Performance are some of the key operational aspects of any company, that are now made easier with YASKAWA Cockpit solution.

ST Robotics Develops the Workspace Sentry for Collaborative Robotics

The ST Robotics Workspace Sentry robot and area safety system are based on a small module that sends an infrared beam across the workspace. If the user puts his hand (or any other object) in the workspace, the robot stops using programmable emergency deceleration. Each module has three beams at different angles and the distance a beam reaches is adjustable. Two or more modules can be daisy chained to watch a wider area. "A robot that is tuned to stop on impact may not be safe. Robots where the trip torque can be set at low thresholds are too slow for any practical industrial application. The best system is where the work area has proximity detectors so the robot stops before impact and that is the approach ST Robotics has taken," states President and CEO of ST Robotics David Sands.
