Yaskawa launches digital product configurator of Servo motor 3D part models 

Yaskawa America, Inc. has launched its new digital product catalogue of Servo motors and motion control products.

Built by CADENAS PARTsolutions, the new tool enables engineers to quickly find, configure and download a 3D part model of Servo motors directly from Yaskawa’s website.

As the world’s largest manufacturer of AC inverter drives, motion control and robotic automation systems, Yaskawa sought a solution to make their products easily available to online customers.

Before launching their new configurator, engineers would turn to search engines to find Yaskawa product downloads.

“Before implementing the PARTsolutions Product Configurator, a number of our customers would have a difficult time locating documents on our website,” said Dakota Miller, Product Specialist at Yaskawa America, Inc.

“Sometimes, this would cause them to leave our website entirely and look for the drawings they needed elsewhere.”

Engineers and designers can use Yaskawa’s digital product catalogue to find and configure a Servo motor in minutes – without leaving Yaskawa’s website.

Engineers can also customise the product using the drop-down options built into the catalogue, see an interactive 3D preview of the part and download it into their application as a native CAD file.

“It’s valuable for customers to be able to see what options they have to customise their motors, select those options, and then the configurator builds it for them,” said Miller.

The new catalogue has over 100 CAD formats, as well as configured 3D PDF data sheets.
