    Dr. Shinsuke Sakakibara (FANUC Ltd., Japan) 
    Robotization has not been common in the field of foods and pharmaceuticals handling because there have been two major problems. One is the handling speed was not enough and the other is the cleanness was not secured enough. This time high speed and continuous operation were achieved by "dual drive torque tandem control" that used two servo motors for three basic axes of the robot respectively, cleanness was secured in addition by adopting  resin gears and a double seal structure. Thus these problems were solved.
