Energy efficient inverter drives for spindle motors, transport and ventilation systems

Wether put in a control cabinet or at a wall, in clean or harsh environment, the flexible package design of the GA700 allows a reliable operation under various environmental conditions.

Limitless possibilities

With a flexible motor control, powerful and extendable functionality, and a broad power range up to 630 kW, the GA700 is the drive of choice for almost any task, ranging from simple transportation, presses and others up to complex systems with network connected drives or the demand for higher levels of safety.

YASKAWA opens up new possibilities of energy efficiency and energy saving for fans and other applications with variable torque, using the latest inverter drive technology.

Servo drive technology for high-precision work

With more than 12 million servo systems in the field, YASKAWA has lots of experience and technical know-how in motion and control. The result: Excellent performance and an extremely low fault rate. Startup is possible in just a few minutes. With the new Sigma-7 series, you achieve an unprecedented level of precision.

SIGMA-7 Servo systems for CNC machines

The development of the new Sigma-7 series focused on three main goals: consistently fast commissioning, high production output and maximum operational reliability. The prerequisites for this are provided by intelligent functions such as autotuning, automatic load adjustment or integrated vibration suppression. New book-style housing supports gapless side-by-side installation of amplifiers even in small spaces for high performance density inside a cabinet.

The series offers a powerful response to today‘s market requirements for both machine constructors and final customers in the production industry.

Robots for handling, packaging and more

Robots offer many advantages due to their speed, precision and costeffectiveness. They also ensure a consistent quality standard and high repeatability. They guarantee a high return on investment and are suitable for handling, sawing, grinding, polishing, milling or quality control, 24 hours a day, all year round.


The MOTOMAN MH series offers flexible 6-axis high-speed robots for a variety of applications such as handling, machine loading, processing and distribution applications. The MH models have a load capacity of up to 600 kg and a working range of 532 mm to 3,106 mm. The compact design allows for close positioning on the workpiece and reduces cycle times.

18 robot Motoman permettono a IKEA di produrre tutti i componenti per realizzare la libreria della serie “Billy” in solo 6 secondi! Significa 40.000 unità alla settimana.

La soluzione robotizzata consente inoltre di ridurre i costi di produzione del 20%. Questo video mostra le diverse applicazioni per la movimentazione e la pallettizzazione.

Operating and monitoring with HMI and VIPA PLC

The interaction between man and machine is usually carried out via control units, which are connected to the control of the systems. From the smallest system up to a large, multi-networked machine: VIPA Controls offers the entire spectrum of HMI and PLC for a variety of applications.

Touch Panels & Panel PCs

With the Panel PC series from VIPA Controls you are optimally equipped for all control and monitoring tasks. The combination of Industrial PCs with stateof-the-art performance features and Touch Panels with optimum display options concentrates high performance in a small space.


With VIPA MICRO, VIPA Controls presents a very compact and extremely fast micro control system. The design has a definite wow-factor and opens up completely new paths as regards operating and status display. Thus the VIPA MICRO M13c is the starting signal for the new controller generation from YASKAWA VIPA Controls.


SLIO is an extremely compact I/O system with fast backplane bus, single-channel diagnostics LEDs and standing wiring. It offers highest cost-effectiveness through its modular concept, especially in assembly and service. SLIO can be combined with all VIPA systems. The combination with systems from other CPU manufacturers is easy and possible without restrictions. It is one of the most efficient and advanced decentral I/O systems available on the market. SLIO combines the highest functionality with a clever mechanical concept in an extremely compact and maintenance-friendly design.
