Yaskawa is a electronic company founded in 1915 in Fukuoka, Southern Japan.
The company – to whom we owe the coining of the term “Mechatronics” – operates in many different sectors that encompass almost the whole range of industrial automation products.
Yaskawa is one of the world’s strongest players in manufacturing of motion control products and ac drives.
In 1989, the company gave birth to Motoman, an American branch entirely focused on industrial robotics, which in a short time gained a strong position on the US market.
Yaskawa’s best-selling products include frequency drives, servo amplifiers, servomotors and machine controllers, along with robotics arms marketed under the trade name of Yaskawa Motoman.
