About YAMAHA Motor IM
After starting in 1974 the industrial robot business started with machines to help mechanize its own Yamaha factories, Yamaha began developing surface mounters in a new business unit Intelligent Machinery. OEM sales of these surface mounters began in 1984, followed by the launch of the first model “YM4600S” under the Yamaha brand name in 1987, marking Yamaha’s full-fledged entry in the surface mounter market. Since then the business has continued to grow, reaching cumulative wholesales of 10,000 units in February of 2001 and 20,000 units in March of 2006.
