Responding to the Needs of an Aging Society and a Shortage of Labor through Automation

We positioned medical robots as a business that will support an aging society, established Medicaroid Corporation— a joint venture with Sysmex Corporation—and are now engaged in development of Robotically Assisted Surgical Device and applied robots using industrial robot technology with the goal of creating new businesses. We also seek to promote collaboration with humans in work operations, with an emphasis on duAro—our dual-armed SCARA robot—and cultivate demand for greater automation at manufacturing sites.

The Kawasaki Group will also contribute to fulfilling the SDGs shown to the left, utilizing the capabilities of our business segments.
