Vention Joins Yaskawa Motoman’s Partner Network to Enable Rapid Deployment of Smart Series Robots

Vention, a next-generation digital manufacturing platform for industrial equipment, is releasing new hardware components to support rapid deployment of robot cell equipment for Yaskawa’s Smart Series robots. Building on Vention’s library of over 500 modular parts and cloud-based 3D MachineBuilder platform, users can now design, order, and assemble customized equipment for robots like the HC10DT, MotoMini, GP7, and GP8 series—in as little as three days.

In line with Vention's mission to democratize machine design, new hardware for Yaskawa Smart Series robots is compatible with all existing components available on the Vention platform. Over a dozen examples of equipment designs are already available for customization directly on Vention's cloud platform.

End clients and integrators can also leverage the MachineBuilder to design their entire robot cell, including robot riser, part dispenser, part fixturing device, automated conveyor, fencing and guarding, and more.

"We are excited to partner with an innovative automation company whose products complement our Smart Series robots," said Chetan Kapoor, Senior Director of Technology Innovation at Yaskawa Innovation Inc. "Our customers and integration partners will benefit from Vention's rapid deployment capabilities."

"I believe democratization of industrial automation is a powerful long-term trend that will shape the industry in the years ahead, and the Smart Series targets a new category of customers in line with this direction. We are expanding our partner network with a company who invests in simplifying industrial automation deployments," added Patrick Halde, VP of Business Development at Vention.
