YASKAWA MOTOLOGIX HOOKS UP WITH ROUTECO
As part of its drive in supplying market leading robotics solutions
with the innovative Motoman and MotoLogix brands, motion control and robotics specialist YASKAWA is developing a sales relationship with Routeco UK. The importance of the collaboration is underlined with the investment in a dedicated robot cell demonstration facility at Routeco’s Milton Keynes site where the benefits of the MotoLogix control system can be fully appreciated.
The combination of YASKAWA’s innovative robotics products and Routeco’s position as one of the UK’s leading distributors of industrial automation and control products, provides customers with an ideal shop window for effective robotic solutions. Commenting on the agreement, Keith Harrison, Group Commercial Director at Routeco said, “This is an exciting new venture with a market-leading global robotics brand which will enhance our automation solutions offering to our customers. The integration between MOTOMAN Robots and Rockwell Automation PLCs using MotoLogix provides a significant technical advantage to our existing customers and makes this a perfect partnership for Routeco and our clients.”
MotoLogix is a revolutionary software interface for controlling YASKAWA robots by PLC. It is currently available for several major PLC brands and fieldbuses and is designed with two primary objectives; to enable OEM’s to deeply integrate YASKAWA robot systems in their PLC controlled machinery and to enable easy programming, commissioning, teaching, operating of robots in a machine, without need of specialised knowledge.
