Bring new precision and performance to every stage in your development with Yaskawa servo motors and amplifiers, machine controllers, and robotics.

Yaskawa improves performance from Day One, but we don't stop there. Our motion control technology also prepares you for new frontiers in additive manufacturing:

  • Robotic systems that produce curvilinear motion for true 3D deposition
  • Additive/Subtractive technology which combines the benefits of 3D printing and traditional routing/machining

Rise above the desktop:  Shaky, imprecise desktop machines become robust industrial performers with motion control that overcomes vibration, boosts speed and gets you ready for tomorrow's hybrid technologies.

Advance the industry standard:  Industrial quality printers benefit from Yaskawa's smooth and precise motion, plus worldwide support that distinguishes your machine in a crowded marketplace.

Restate the state of the art:  Top tier manufacturers need new ideas, plus the engineering support to make them work. Yaskawa supplies both, using the latest linear and robotic motion systems and Singular Control to create a seamless, supportable development environment.


  • Yaskawa Compass™ Software
    Yaskawa Compass™ is a graphical user software package applicable to 3D printing, shape cutting, machine tool and robotics. Compass points novice machine operators in the right direction, while giving experienced developers a pathway to advanced features....

  • Yaskawa Compass is your CNC navigator, a graphical user software package applicable to multiple applications in 3D printing, shape cutting, machine tool and robotics. Coupled with Yaskawa's MP3300iec motion controller, Compass provides advanced plug-in solutions that you simply drop onto your screen.  Prebuilt plug-ins include extruder, spindle, temperature control, stepper control, linear and rotary tool changer, 2D path planning and more. All plug-ins are developed in C#, so machine builders can also easily create and import their own machine plug-ins.

    Key features of Yaskawa Compass include:

    • Landscape or portrait mode
    • Machine configurator
    • Screen configurator
    • Prebuilt Plugins
    • OEMs branding with company colors and graphics
    • Axis configurator
    • Auto, MDI and manual mode
    • Pop-up NC editor and messaging
    • Alarm history
    • Tool manager
    • Part cycle time measurement tools
    • 2D viewer with live TCP updates

    To supplement the use of Compass, Yaskawa has added advanced motion control features to its MotionWorks IEC library, including bed leveling compensation, extruder pressure advance control, tangential control and ability to create custom G-codes and kinematics.
