Yaskawa America, Inc. – Drives & Motion Division is a U.S. corporation, created to provide Automation Solutions and Support to our customers in North America, Central America, and South America. Yaskawa is the world’s largest manufacturer of AC Inverter Drives, Servo and Motion Control, and Robotics Automation Systems. Products are marketed through direct sales, partners, representatives, dealers, and distributors. Yaskawa America, Inc. – Drives & Motion Division is a wholly-owned corporation of Yaskawa Electric Corporation of Japan. Since 1915, Yaskawa Electric has served the world needs for products to improve global productivity through Automation.
The motion engine of MPiec controllers incorporates IEC61131-3 and PLCopen programming standards, offering users motion control options from a single axis to as many as 62.
Match any Yaskawa servo motor with a fully digital, easily networked SERVOPACK amplifier. The productivity features within each SERVOPACK enable more precise control and shorter settling times. Each model is equipped with a package of software algorithms that tune automatically, suppress vibration, and compensate for friction and ripple and effects. Choose from single or dual axis designs.
In terms of compact size, high resolution and precise performance, the automation industry has never seen a line of rotary servo motors like today’s Sigma-7. The full range of products from 3w to 55kw perform in higher temperature extremes, at higher altitudes and in more washdown environments than ever before. Every Sigma-7 model is backward compatible with existing Sigma-5 and Sigma II products.
Yaskawa linear servo motors replace the backlash, friction, inertia and wear of mechanical linkages with smooth, precise, high performance linear motion in a compact footprint.
MotionWorks IEC offers intuitive, powerful programming capabilities within a familiar IEC61131-3 environment, and OPC Server allows easy data exchange between PCs and MPiec controllers.
