YASKAWA journey in India began with the business of PLC in1980 and AC drives in 1990 and steadily expanded to accommodate growing customer needs. Today, our operations span the length and breadth of the country, and India remains a central hub for our future goals, which is headed by dynamic team. We address innovation primarily through two distinct product and service categories: Drives & Motion Control and Robotics Automation. Our AC Drives division is spread over a production facility of 3 assembly lines, in a 55,000 sq.ft facility in Bangalore.

Products include:

  • High Performance Vector Control DriveA1000.
  • Matix converter U1000.
  • Compact V/f Control DriveJ1000.
  • Compact Vector Control DriveV1000.
  • Special purpose inverter drive:
    • L1000 A for lift application.
    • A1000 with winder software for winder application.
    • D1000 & R1000 for regenerative drive.

Our Motion Control services address a variety of needs through products such as:

  • Sigma 5 / Servo Drive
  • Sigma 5 / Servo Motor / Linear Motor / Direct drive motor
  • MP2000

In the Application Robots segment, our expertise addresses needs including

  • Arc welding
  • Spot welding
  • Handling Robot
  • Pick, pack and palletizing from2kg to 800kgs load capacity
  • Painting Robot.
  • Arc welding

The Robotics future vision plan will aid better delivery in hospitals, rehabilitation centres, education and evolve into comprehensive human-assist solutions. Our production capabilities are effectively complemented by a comprehensive after sales support and service network. In India, our corporate headquarters and drives & motion control division is located in Bangalore, the robotics division in Gurgaon and branch offices across Pune, Bangalore &Chennai.

YASKAWA global network spans across Asia Pacific region, Europe, the Americas and Africa; this has been an advantage for our customers on after sales services & technical support.

Our controllers are designed for a host of applications including assembly and small parts handling. The open source architecture allows complete customisation. We see the future roles for our AC Drives division converging into effective environmental energy solutions, across health care, amusement and commercial use. Our robotics applications presence in India started in 2005. Core strengths include welding, assembly, coating, dispensing and material cutting. From a stable of over 175 robotic variants, we have been able to successfully integrate over 3000 installations in both general production lines and specific process cells.

Consequently, our installations have been hugely successful across industries?from health care to manufacturing plants, entertainment parks, commercial establishments and core industries such as automotives, light and heavy engineering.

At YASKAWA, we are constantly trying to outperform our benchmarks, with a continuous focus on R&D. Our patents for the world?s fastest robot are among the many significant achievements; it is easy to see that we place quality innovations first.

Our financial credentials further endorse our capabilities. Our global revenues touched close to 310 billion Yen for the year 2012-13, while our Indian operations crossed 1.8 billion INR.

Come 2015, we will celebrate a century of making living easier. In a befitting tribute to our growth thus far, our global Vision 2015 focuses on:

  • Robotics Human Assist domain where we will work towards a symbiotic co-existence between robots and mankind.
  • Working towards a sustainable environmental energy conservation, using specific drive technologies.
  • Work towards energy creation solutions.

Our social responsibility takes into account the impact of our work on our immediate and global environments. From instituting a comprehensive internal environment management system to ensuring that we are a green company from procurement through product functioning, we aim to minimise the burden on a rapidly declining ecological balance. Team YASKAWA also spends considerable time in community care initiatives such as afforestation; education and instituting waste recycle management programmes.

We have bright plans for the future. And we are making that possible, one innovation at a time.
