About Yaskawa America, Inc., Drives & Motion Division

Making Awesome Happen
At Yaskawa, we help you explore what’s possible, and open new doors to opportunity. Rather than accepting the status quo, we invite you to wonder, “What if …?” And then we make it possible. That dedication to engineering and innovation is what makes us different. So ask yourself: wouldn’t it be awesome to work with a company that can do all that?

Experience is often the difference between solving a problem the right way and settling for “good enough.”
Our global expertise is unmatched and unquestioned, with 100+ Years of manufacturing excellence, 15,000+ worldwide associates, 25 countries with Yaskawa sales, service, and manufacturing locations, and $4.0 billion in global sales per year. Since 1915, Yaskawa has produced 17 million servo axes, 27 million variable frequency drives and 405,000 robots. Every year, Yaskawa produces 37,000 robots, 1.05 million servo axes, and 2.2 million variable frequency drives.

We start at “better” and go from there.
We provide both standard products and tailor-made solutions, all backed by proven quality and reliability. We’re also continuously working to save you money, time, energy and headaches, because we believe your machine can always run faster, smoother and more productively. It’s about making the correct diagnoses, creating the right automation machinery, and implementing it in the best way possible. It’s no coincidence that the best engineers develop the best solutions. It’s why we staff our team with the finest talent, and stress continual education and training.

At Yaskawa, there’s no such thing as “business as usual.”
We understand that every challenge is unique, and that every part of your system must work together to maximize efficiency and value. That’s why we work closely with you to truly understand your problems and find ways that expand your ability to overcome them. Our experts in automation and motion control are standing by, eager to build whatever is necessary to make new automation ideas possible. We’re well known for our ability to create exceptional motion automation components. But we back this up with “never satisfied” commitment to help customers put them to optimal use. Our Engineered Systems team is equipped to handle each and every job from start to finish, whether designing new automation controls or upgrading existing ones to improve performance and cut costs.

Yaskawa AC 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.

Over 400,000 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.

Yaskawa low and medium voltage AC Variable Frequency 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.
