Yaskawa Announces Pharmacy-Order Automation Pact

Sept. 29, 2015
At 2015 PACK EXPO Las Vegas, Yaskawa Motoman revealed that it formed a partnership with R/X Automation Solutions (RXAS) and Universal Robotics to deliver robotic pharmacy-order fulfillment systems.

Yaskawa Motoman revealed last week that it formed a partnership with R/X Automation Solutions (RXAS) and Universal Robotics to deliver robotic pharmacy-order fulfillment systems. The systems, which will handle bottles, boxes, and other odd-shaped products, will provide complete verification of National Drug Code barcodes and validation of robotically placed patient labels for pharmacy unit-of-use items. At the exhibition, Yaskawa’s booth (C-4243) will offer demos of the company’s latest innovations in robotic picking, case packing, and palletizing. For example, its Singular Control case-packer demo combines Yaskawa’s articulated robot and a gantry under servo control. Both are programmed within the same software environment.
