Start the Next Revolution in Packaging Productivity: The key to packaging success is to coax every ounce of performance from each component in a machine, day in and day out. That’s the foundation of standards like OEE (Overall Equipment Effectiveness), and the biggest reason that packaging professionals are turning to Yaskawa for new ideas in motion automation. We’re pioneering servo, robot and drive technologies that deliver more speed, less waste and higher precision with every new spin of the rotor. Servo Motion Control: Yaskawa servo systems come to a precise position with a speed and consistency that is unmatched in the automation industry. Connect our rotary, linear, and direct drive motors (outputs from 3W to 55kW) to an advanced Yaskawa motion controller to achieve SINGULAR CONTROL: the ability to manage robots, servos and drives with a single controller and familiar IEC 61131-3 programming.    Robotics: Over 300,000 Yaskawa robots are at work worldwide, with 150+ models to choose from and the strength of decades of packaging application expertise. Yaskawa’s Motoman robots are successfully picking, packing and palletizing a wide variety of food, beverage and consumer products for global CPG leaders. Variable Frequency Drives: Yaskawa low and medium voltage AC drives cover every automation application need in the industrial plant, with power ranges from fractional HP to 16,000 HP and a legendary reputation for reliability and advanced technology.
