Yaskawa Corporation sponsors a $431,200 Laboratory for Hanoi University of Science and Technology (HUST), shaping the future of Industry 4.0

On January 25, 2024, Yaskawa Electric Corporation, a pioneering automation technology conglomerate from Japan, officially donated a modern laboratory to the Hanoi University of Science and Technology (HUST). This event not only marks a deep collaboration between the two sides but also represents a solid step in applying advanced technology to education and research in Vietnam, especially in the context of the strong ongoing Industrial Revolution 4.0.


I3-Mechatronics Laboratory Sponsorship

Yaskawa sponsored the i3-Mechatronics automation laboratory, valued at 330,000 USD, for the School of Electrical & Electronics Engineering at HUST. This laboratory is fully equipped with the latest technologies, solutions, and devices from Yaskawa, including robots, servo drive systems, high-performance AC inverters, motion controllers, PLCs, and digital software solutions. Integrated with equipment from leading brands like Omron, the laboratory is not only a place for training and research but also serves as a prototype model for smart manufacturing systems, digital control, and computer vision, aiming at the Industrial Revolution 4.0. This is particularly in line with HUST's curriculum and opens up new research directions for students and faculty in the field of automation.

Furthermore, Yaskawa also sponsored an automated welding robot system valued at 101,200 USD for the School of Mechanical Engineering at HUST. This system, based on Yaskawa's advanced technology, includes welding robots and cutting-edge welding equipment, servo drives, and AC inverters, focusing on training and research in welding technology, especially important in the manufacturing and automation industries.
