Material handling

Move products from one place to another

With the right tools, robots can handle products efficiently and precisely.

Many tasks fall under the category of 'material handling'. Yet, when it comes to robot automation, it's – in essence – about a robot arm grasping an object, relocating it, and setting it down again.


These tasks, while straightforward, also mean you can eliminate hazardous, monotonous, and physically demanding manual work. This shift allows employees to focus more on tasks that add value.

Increased productivity

Reduced downtime

Fewer work injuries

High lifting capacity and happy employees

Automating material handling harnesses the robot's capability to transport objects from one place to another. When equipped with appropriate tools, such as grippers, the robot efficiently and accurately moves products to various locations. Kawasaki's range includes 52 models with capacities ranging from 2 to 1500 kg, capable of integrating with other systems like containers, conveyors, and AGVs, effectively eliminating the need for hazardous, tedious, or physically demanding tasks.
