THK America Inc. of Schaumburg, Ill., has formed an alliance with Yaskawa Electric America Inc. - which makes variable-speed drives, servo controls and robotics - to create a new motion-control package.
The motion controller blends THK´s new high-performance, low-cost VLA linear actuators with Yaskawa´s Legend Servo Amp & Controller and the Sigma electric servomotors.
``This alliance represents the best in mechanical products, coupled with the best in electrical motion products,´´ with a ``plug ´n´ work´´ architecture, said William Terry, THK´s senior vice president of sales and marketing.
