Yamaha energizes factory-automation sales network at annual meeting

Yamaha’s Jumpei Ninomiya presented Renex with the Most Valuable Distributor Award.

Yamaha Motor Robotics FA Section, which provides advanced robots and associated expertise for diverse industrial assembly, parts-handling, and packaging applications, has held its 2021 annual distributor conference online, taking advantage of the chance to present diverse content and invite worldwide participation.

The meeting opened with a welcome from the Netherlands by Yamaha Motor Europe’s CEO followed by live presentations from Japan including a new demonstration of the latest equipment capabilities. 

Yasushi Miyake, Branch Manager of Yamaha Motor Europe IM business said, “We have handled this year together strongly by supporting our customers and partners consistently and making our teamwork even more purposeful.”

The demonstration highlighting advanced technical capabilities combined Yamaha’s latest YK-XG high-speed, compact SCARA robot and the new LCMR200 linear conveyor modules. The programmable modules deliver next-generation flexibility when transporting items between work processes, including bidirectional motion with software-configurable parameters that are easy to setup and fine-tune. Minimal hardware is needed, with the built-in motor drive and external YHX controller, enabling integrators to create compact and reliable solutions to automation challenges.

Jumpei Ninomiya, Sales Manager for Yamaha’s FA Section, presented Yamaha’s award for Most Valuable Distributor to Renex. As Yamaha’s agent for Poland and the Balkans, Renex has delivered outstanding support including investing in training opportunities for partners. Renex’s management commented, “We are always committed to providing the utmost support for our customers and partners and will continue to respond with innovative solutions. It’s exciting and rewarding to share this journey with Yamaha.”
