Single page success story involving iQpump1000 drives. Hydronics Modules Corporation (HMC), a division of N.H. Yates & Co., Inc. in Cockeysville, Maryland, is a booster skid pump design and manufacturing firm known for their ability to engineer pump systems tailored to unique application requirements. They were able to utilize Yaskawa iQpump®1000 drives to solve a water pressure problem for a Detroit area hospital.
Single page success story involving iQpump1000 drives. Metro Irrigation Supply successfully installed a Gicon pump station at a local high school football field and reduced energy consumption by utilizing Yaskawa iQpump1000 variable speed drives.
Application Success Story for Sigma-5 used in a web tension control application. The web processing is performed on a steel web that is to be used in solar panel production, and is unwound/wound and inspected by the system presented here. A Galil motion controller controls all three axes in step/direction mode which puts the Sigma-5 in position mode taking advantage of the adaptive tuning, quick setup, and stellar performance, thus beating out the competition.
Application Success Story for Sigma-5 used in a high performance RFID in-lay application. The results doubled production capabilities and simplified startup by reducing tuning time - beating competition. The upper controller was from the customer so +/-10VDC analog speed reference was used.
Application Success Story for Sigma-5 used in plasma cutting application. The key here was to meet European Safety standards and maintain performance. The customer's upper controller was used with +/-10VDC analog speed interface to Sigma-5 amplifiers. The following safety standards were achieved: EN 954-1 Category 3, EN 60204-1 Stop Category 0, IEC61800-5-2 Safe Torque (STO), IEC61508-1 to 4:2000 SIL2
Application Success Story for Sigma-5 used in semiconductor chip die-bonding application. Short positioning time and settling time is critical in a quick point-to-point application like die-bonding. Accuracy and speed are often balanced, but with Sigma-5, improvements in both areas are achieved - surpassing competition. Customer's upper controller was used with step/direction interface to the Sigma-5 amplifiers.
Application Success Story for Sigma-5 used in a metal stamping application. The MP2200 controls this direct drive motor to accurately position a metal plate to be notched out in sequence. The key to this application was to reduce cycle time of the part by increasing positioning performance and reducing settling time. The Sigma-5 made this possible even with changing loads from 2:1 to 18:1 load to motor inertia ratio!! Setup time for tuning to achieve this performance was only 30 minutes from out-of-box.

Application success using the MP2300Siec controller in a registration feed-to-length application. High speed registration is necessary to feed and cut varying lengths of paper at a rate of 333 cuts/minute with an average length of 8".
Success Story using MP2300Siec controller in an application to bundle cables together. Application required geared motion to advance several axes simultaneously, and torque limits to apply a set amount of pressure to squeeze the bundle.
Application Success using MP2300Siec controller on an intermittent Vertical Form Fill and Seal machine. Solution uses high speed position registration to align the film and features throughput of 120 per minute.
Application success using MP2200 controller in a gapping application. Motor is mounted on a conveyor which adjusts position to maintain a minimum gap between boxes of product in a distribution center. This Solution Package is an offshoot of the Synch-Belt application and is called GapBelt.
This document describes an application using the MP2300Siec on a 3 axis machine to dispense food into containers. One axis indexes a dial plate. The other two axes are Exlar linear actuators. The MP2300Siec interfaces directly to an AB Micrologix PLC via Ethernet/IP.
This document describes an application using the MP2300Siec to control a 12-axis servo system to perform quality tests on stove knobs. The system features point-to-point motion and an interface to a Red Lion HMI via Ethernet Modbus/TCP. The MP2300Siec platform provided an unbeatable combination of price/performance and commissioning was made easier by the IEC 61131-3 programming environment.
This document describes a successful multi-axis implementation of an MPiec Series Controller and Sigma-5 servopacks in the automotive industry. The 6 axis programmable motion system replaced an outdated mechanical mechanism for picking and placing battery componenets. The upgrade to servos added speed, precision and flexibility to the process. The MPiec Series Controller interfaced to a RedLion HMI and an AB PLC.
