WiBotic Signs Partnership with Nabtesco Corporation for Sales in Japan

WiBotic – the leader in advanced wireless charging solutions for mobile robots – enters strategic sales partnership with Nabtesco, bolstering presence in Japanese market

November 28, 2023 – SEATTLE – Today WiBotic, a Seattle company that specializes in advanced wireless charging and power optimization solutions for the rapidly expanding ecosystem of industrial, commercial and space robotics, announced a strategic partnership with Nabtesco Corporation. Nabtesco is a leading Japanese engineering company that specializes in gearboxes, rotors, motors and robotics, and will immediately begin offering WiBotic wireless charging solutions in Japan.

WiBotic systems provide mobile robots with greater range, flexibility and reliability than contact-based charging systems. They also require less human intervention and maintenance. Power delivery is flexible to within several centimeters of WiBotic’s wireless transmitter, so robots can recharge more reliably and with greater ease, improving overall uptime. And WiBotic’s products are compact and lightweight and can be retrofitted to existing equipment with limited space.

The advantages inherent in wireless charging have led to rapid growth in the Japanese wireless charging sector, with unit sales expected to more than triple in the next four years.

“Japan is home to many of the world’s leading robotics companies and manufacturers, and Nabtesco is a true pioneer within the industry,” said Ben Waters, cofounder and CEO, WiBotic. “The Japanese market for wireless power solutions is positioned for rapid growth, and to meet demand, Nabtesco has been looking for a strategic partner to deliver innovative solutions. We’re thrilled they’ve selected us, and we look forward to working with them closely in the future.”
