The Drives and Motion Division of Yaskawa America is pleased to announce the introduction of Sigma Trac II series linear slides to the Sigma-7 servo family. Sigma Trac II combines a Yaskawa SGLF2 series linear motor with linear bearings, high-resolution absolute optical scale, cable management and optional bellows to create a turnkey linear servo motor stage. Leveraging the industry-leading performance of Sigma-7 servo amplifiers, system designers and automation end users can design smaller, faster, more accurate linear motion systems for additive manufacturing, packaging, material handling, machining and assembly applications.

“Our expertly designed, manufactured, and tested mechatronic solutions can reduce your time-to-market,” stated Bryan Knight, Linear and Direct Drive Product Marketing Manager. “This new linear stage design will allow machine builders to create innovative mechanisms that are smaller and faster than ever before.”

By using the latest linear motor and magnet technology, Yaskawa has packed more performance in a smaller, lighter linear motor. When combined with Sigma-7 servo amplifiers, Sigma Trac II linear motor stages provide short settling time for greater repeatability in highly dynamic movements that are typical in packaging, assembly, and additive manufacturing applications. Sigma Trac II stages are available in three coil sizes and 13 base lengths, making it easy to select the optimal linear servo motor stage for your application.

Yaskawa is the world’s largest manufacturer of AC drives and motion control products, including adjustable frequency drives, servo amplifiers, servomotors and machine controllers. The company is dedicated to manufacturing the highest quality products on the market, and has done so in North America for the last 40+ years.
