The Drives & Motion Division of Yaskawa America, Inc. has introduced the Sigma SD line of spindle drive systems. The new product was created to bring a notable increase in precision and productivity to automated machining equipment.
Sigma SD draws upon the technical advances of Yaskawa’s Sigma Series servo systems to meet the specialized demands of high volume machine tool manufacturers.
The SD product uses Sigma technology to give a spindle drive with precise speed control, plus the ability to move between speed settings very rapidly, says the company. This capability enables an SD system to create more finished components per hour without sacrificing the quality and uniformity of the finished component.
