Champion Awards Acknowledge Yaskawa's Dedicated Support for the ARM Institute

DAYTON, Ohio - Nov. 29, 2023 - PRLog -- A member and strong supporter of the ARM (Advanced Robotics for Manufacturing) Institute since its formation in 2017, Yaskawa Motoman is pleased to announce two employees as recipients of the ARM Champion Award. Receiving the awards over a two-year consecutive period are Clint Chapman, Sr. Manager of Strategic Partner Relations, and Roger Christian, Division Leader for New Business Development. Recognizing Institute members who make an impact on the organization beyond typical ARM duties, this award is given to individuals who enable and advocate for the ARM Institute's work of making robotics, autonomy, and artificial intelligence more accessible to U.S. manufacturers for a more resilient future.

A member of Consortium's Education & Workforce Advisory Committee (EWAC), Clint Chapman accepted his award on November 13th at the ARM Member Meeting in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Recognized for his work in helping to develop – an ARM-powered website that supports the manufacturing workforce at each stage of the robotics career – Mr. Chapman's 25-plus years in the robotics industry is invaluable.

Honored with the Champion Award in 2022, Roger Christian is an integral member of ARM's Technical Advisory Committee (TAC), which seeks to drive the creation and iteration of technical strategy that helps to ensure a strong national manufacturing ecosystem. Recognized for his persistent promotion of the ROS-Industrial® (ROS-I) community and the ARM Institute consortium, he continues to build on 40 years of robotics industry experience, helping to bridge the gap between advanced research and product commercialization for a stronger national manufacturing sector.

Launched in 2021, the ARM Champion Award Program opens nominations from ARM Institute members and consortium members on a semi-quarterly basis. Each nominee must show evidence of making an impact on the organization beyond typical duties.
