Parallel link robot.
Rolling Meadows, IL — New from Panasonic Factory Solutions Company, its innovative Parallel Link Robot is an easy-to-program, automated assistant for various manufacturing applications including: insertion, wiring, assembling, adhesive application, soldering, and labeling. Its simple, direct teaching process uses hand-guided intuitive operation to faithfully replicate precise human motion.

The six-axis robot does not require the typical engineering skills and computer work needed to program most robots, and once it is programmed, it can run 24 hours a day, making it a truly efficient solution.

Manufacturers the world over recognize the importance of automation. As traditional cost-sensitive regions give way to new locations and manufacturing initiatives further drive quality improvements, the science of robotics will continue its pivotal role in the future of electronics manufacturing. This is especially evident in North America. According to the Robotic Industries Association, about 228,000 robots are now used in United States factories, placing the U.S. second to Japan in robot use. Last year, more than 22,000 robots, valued at $1.39 billion, were delivered in North America, an 11 percent growth in units shipped over 2012, a record year. Parallel Link Robot is part of the ever-widening array of solutions Panasonic Factory Solutions Company of America offers to electronics manufacturers of any mix and any volume production.
