The Motoman Robotics Division of Yaskawa America Inc. has entered into a license agreement with Nihon Shoryoku Kikai Co. Ltd. (NSK). Under the terms of this multi-year agreement, Yaskawa Motoman will have exclusive rights in the Americas for the technology, manufacturing and sales of NSK’s ultrasonic cutting and deburring machines with 3D profiling, which can replace waterjet and laser trimming methods for non-metallic materials.

“Our partnership with NSK will expand our application capabilities in the automotive tier and other non-metal manufacturing environments,” says Steve Barhorst, president and COO of Yaskawa Motoman. “NSK’s ultrasonic cutting technology integrated with a Motoman robot will deliver outstanding ROI to our customers.”

Norio Tanaka, president of NSK adds that the agreement “represents a natural geographic expansion for our product line.”
