Yaskawa Motoman partners with Robofusion to create Reis and Irvy’s Frozen Yogurt Factory robotic kiosks

November 9, 2012

By Yaskawa Motoman

Reis and Irvy’s Frozen Yogurt Factory robotic kiosksYaskawa Motoman, a leading industrial robot manufacturer, and Robofusion Inc., the leader in interactive robotic kiosks, have entered into a partnership to market Reis and Irvy’s Frozen Yogurt Factory kiosks. Reis and Irvy’s is the world’s first and only Robotic Frozen Yogurt Kiosk line.

“Robofusion is the forefront of robotics for retail. We have been working with Yaskawa Motoman for months to make the Reis and Irvy’s Frozen Yogurt Factory a reality,” stated Allan Jones, co-founder and CEO of Robofusion. “Utilizing Motoman’s state-of-the-art SDA5 robot allowed us to jointly create one of the most fascinating robotic kiosks ever built.”

Introduced at Pack Expo (October 28, 2012 in Chicago), users interacted with Reis and Irvy’s Frozen Yogurt Factory by selecting up to two flavors of yogurt and two toppings (from a choice of four yogurt flavors and 10 toppings), choosing a robotic character, and then an SDA5 robot, a.k.a. “Cid”, artfully delivered the order in a souvenir cup.

Motoman SDA-series robots provide the reach, payload, speed, performance and flexibility required to perform a myriad of assembly, handling, machine tending packaging and part transfer applications that formerly could only be done by people. SDA robots feature 15 axes of motion (seven axes per arm, plus a single axis for base rotation), and are available with 5-, 10- and 20-kilogram payloads.

Reis & Irvy’s Frozen Yogurt Factory is a brand of robotic kiosks from Robofusion.
