The world’s smallest AC servomotor?

Yaskawa has added to its range of servo motors with the new – mini series. The series is billed as the smallest AC servo motors available.

Offered in both 10W and 20W ratings, the series is available with three different options: motor only, motor with brake, and motor with gearbox.

The 10W units measure just 25mm by 25mm by 54mm, while the 20W units measure 25mm by 25mm by 64mm.

The motors, said to be fast and accurate, have a rated speed of 300rpm and a maximum rotation speed of 5000rpm, and are targeted at XY positioning, PCB assembly machines, and other low power servo applications.
