Machinery : Industrial Robot : General
People often find that industrial robots introduced at manufacturing sites seem difficult to use. Although robots are good at handing simple tasks as programmed to, they struggle when it comes to responding flexibly. Workpieces are sometimes misaligned or have different shapes. Robots often fail to respond to such changes, and then people have to step in and make up for the robots’ weaknesses. However, LINKWIZ provides software offering new value: the ability for robots themselves to think and correct movement. If we can find a way to have robots handle simple tasks currently done by people, robots can be used to help cover the shortage of skilled workers resulting from the aging and decreasing population of Japan. And this might very well create the opportunity for people to do more creative work instead. Our corporate mission is to revolutionize work styles through robotics capable of taking over work once done by people.
