  • Okuma's ARMROID Next-Generation Robot System 61st (2018) Best 10 Product Awards Winner

Okuma's ARMROID Next-Generation Robot System was awarded a 2018 Best 10 New Product Award sponsored by the Nikkan Kogyo Shimbun (Business & Technology Daily News). These Awards are given to selected products for their contributions to the development of manufacturing and the strengthening of Japan's international competitiveness. Annually winners are chosen from among all industrial products developed and in practical use. This is the 15th time Okuma has received a Best 10 New Product Award in the years from 2003 to 2018.

ARMROID is an articulated robot built in the machine tool machining chamber and designed with stress-free teaching (as if operating a normal machine tool) for innovative production at job shops looking to automate small-/medium-sized parts applications.

Robotic operation inside the machining chamber has been achieved—not possible with conventional robots until now. This is a robotic system that provides high levels of in-machine and in-process support.

Switching from a standalone to automated cell operation is also easy, enabling efficient production control of operator/robot work sharing. Moreover, delivering and installing the package is simple since specialized training and system integrators are unnecessary to get started right away.

ARMROID is a totally new robot system offered by Okuma to achieve all types of automation from high-mix, low-volume production (HMLV) of prototypes to mass production of automobile and industrial machinery components
