as we all know, Japan is known as the kingdom of robots. It is the world's largest producer and exporter. Before 2014, it was also the world's largest user and consumer (it has been continuously replaced by China at present). Robot technology originated in the United States, but has been industrialized in Japan. At present, industrial robots made in Japan are in the leading position in the world in both technology and application

according to statistics, there are about 950000 robots in use all over the world, of which Japan accounts for 38%, ranking first in all countries. It can be said that it accounts for half of the world's robot industry. In addition to advanced robot technology and complete varieties, robot enterprises are more like cattle hair. Therefore, we have sorted out a number of representative Japanese industrial robot manufacturers


FANUC Japan is one of the four largest robot families in the world. FANUC is one of the largest industrial robot manufacturers in the world. FANUC brand was founded in 1956, and it is one of the most powerful enterprises in the research, design, manufacturing and sales of numerical control systems in the world

VI. Yamaha

Yamaha robots is a product developed by Yamaha engine company. Yamaha Engine Co., Ltd., founded in 1955, is a Japanese owned enterprise integrating production and sales, mainly engaged in motorcycles, scooters, diesel engines, general engines, generators, automotive engines, industrial robots, etc

the first industrial robot "arc welding robot" produced by Yamaha has been listed. So far, Yamaha robot has provided multifunctional, reliable and mature robot solutions for a wide range of industrial networks. The company offers a variety of single axis and multi axis Cartesian coordinate robot options, as well as SCARA robot systems

VII. Epson

in 1981, Epson industrial robot company was established to meet the needs of Seiko Epson for Seiko watch movement assembly automation, began the design and research and development of small industrial robots, and launched Epson's first compact SCARA robot in 1997. Epson robot has always been based on its own technical characteristics of saving, small and precise. By combining robot technology with Epson's technical advantages in other fields, Epson robot has continuously launched compact, energy-saving and high-precision control robot products to meet users' pursuit of production efficiency with products and services

VIII. Ot should be cooled and finalized immediately. C

otish OTC is a famous trademark used by "daihen" group, which is the world leader in the field of welding and industrial robots, when selling products overseas. It is the largest professional manufacturer of welding robots in Japan. It is a world leading professional production company mainly exporting to more than 40 countries around the world. It is one of the first professional manufacturers of welding machines to enter the Chinese market

IX. Panasonic robot

Panasonic, which has a good market in the field of industrial robots, is very good at the assembly of parts. As its customers are mainly overseas electronic machine manufacturers, Panasonic's export volume has increased year by year. The "robot arm" made by Panasonic has won quite a good reputation in the industry

with Panasonic robot's advanced technology and rich experience in the welding field, Panasonic robot has developed rapidly, and its market recognition has reached 39%. So far, more than 300 robot systems have been provided to the market, which are widely used in many fields, such as automobiles, motorcycles, locomotives, engineering machinery, electrical equipment, furniture manufacturing and so on

X. Denso robots is a company spun off from Toyota. Denso is one of the few auto parts manufacturers in the world, ranking first in Japan. As the overall company of Denso in China, Denso (China) Investment Co., Ltd. was established in 2003. Now it is not only a large auto parts company, but also a leading supplier of industrial robots. At present, the industrial robots (FA devices) such as mechanical arms launched by Denso include: vertical multi joint manipulator, horizontal multi joint (SCARA) manipulator, rectangular coordinate manipulator, built-in manipulator and manipulator controller

Xi. Kawada industry

Its nextage robot has been deployed in many factories and can undertake various complex tasks. It is finding new partners for Kawabata in various industries

12. Mitsubishi Electric

Mitsubishi is probably best known for its automotive products. Since 1980, Mitsubishi Electric has provided a comprehensive lineup of automation products and has become a single source solution to meet users' automation needs. In addition to Melfa series industrial robots, the company also provides CNC control system, laser discharge machining machine tool (EDM), programmable logic controller (PLC), servo system, motion controller, human machine interface (HMI), variable frequency drive (VFD)), low voltage switchgear (LVS), energy monitoring equipment, SCADA and analysis software, and even industrial sewing machines

Melfa FR series industrial robots launched by Mitsubishi Electric provide more intelligent new solutions to support "next generation manufacturing", and provide simpler solutions for advanced and flexible production. New functions include Melfa smart plus, which provides higher accuracy and shorter startup time. Through complex force sensors and enhanced cooperation with visual sensors, it makes installation easier and makes it possible to complete more advanced tasks

XIII. Toshiba

Toshiba is Japan's largest semiconductor manufacturer and the second largest integrated motor manufacturer. Its Toshiba robots provides a comprehensive range of robots, including 6-axis, SCARA and rectangular coordinates, all of which are designed and manufactured indoors (for use). Later, it cooperated with TM robotics to distribute Toshiba robots. TM robotics used Toshiba machinery TVM model series to expand the six axis robot series products. The new products have longer coverage and higher payload, so that robots can load and unload larger machines, such as large plastic injection molding machines, as well as other industrial applications in the automotive, medical, packaging and pharmaceutical industries

whether in the field of industrial robots or other robots, Japan has absolute advantages. For example, in the core parts of robots, such as reducer, servo motor and controller, Japan's strength is also second to none. Some robot manufacturers have the ability to produce parts themselves, while some parts manufacturers have achieved an irreplaceable position

in order to continue to maintain its advantages, Japan issued the "new robot strategy" in 2015, which planned the future development of the Japanese robot industry. Being prepared for danger in times of peace and taking the lead but never slacken is probably the reason why Japan's robot industry has been able to maintain rapid development for decades, which is worth learning from China's robot industry
