Universal programming software allows control of robots, servos, drives

The ability to program and control robots, servos, and drives with one software package is available with the Yaskawa Singular Control concept. Yaskawa’s MotionWorks IEC development platform uses IEC 61131-3 programming languages and motion function blocks that conform to PLCopen standards.


One Yaskawa controller covers it all for a picking operation: vision systems, multi-part conveyors, servo systems, drives, plus all types of robotic mechanisms. Replace custom robot code with standard IEC61131-3 programming.

Case Packing

Make high-speed case packing easier by combining gantry robots, articulated robots and servo-driven automation into a single system. Then switch from one motion device to another without reprogramming!


Two palletizing robots use Singular Control and PalletSolver® software to create pallet patterns and quickly change them on the fly. Use 3D vision and functional safety technology too.
