Choosing a Servo
CHOOSING A SERVO
Begin the search for a Yaskawa servo motor by choosing one of the three main types of servo motors, then clicking through the options to see data on a specific motor model.
THE THREE TYPES
The most common servo motor is the standard ROTARY type, which rotates the shaft coupled to a load. Other applications benefit from a DIRECT DRIVE type, which eliminates the shaft and couples directly to the load. Users wishing to control linear motion can choose from LINEAR servo motors that produce stright-line movements without the need for added gearing or belts.
