Panasonic introduces India’s First AI-powered MINAS A7 Servo System, to Reduce Human Operation Time by 90%*

  • MINAS A7 designed to deliver highest motion performance** and precise automatic tuning superior to that done by human experts
  • Along with MINAS A7, MINAS CZ1 Global and MINAS A6SC series motors have also been launched
  • Use cases of the new servo motors include – chip transfer machines, metal processing machines, laser processing machines and bonding equipment to name a few.

New Delhi, June 10, 2024: The Industrial Devices Division (INDD) of Panasonic Life Solutions India (PLSIND), a leading diversified technology company introduced the industry's first* commercialized AI-equipped servo system MINAS A7 servo system, along with the MINAS CZ1 Global and MINAS A6SC series Servo Motors for Indian OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturers). The state-of-the-art servo systems have been engineered to optimize the manufacturing output with superior motion performance, high-precision control, and efficiency, leveraging cutting-edge technology.

Narayan Kumar, Divisional Director, Industrial Devices Division (INDD), PLSIND said, “The technology for automating servo motor tuning has been evolving over the years. Despite this progress conventional automatic tuning methods were strained to deliver satisfactory results. Especially for equipment that seek ultra-precise positioning in the field of semiconductor manufacturing, electronic components mounting machines, machine tools, industrial robots to name a few. The newly introduced servo system solutions leverage advanced technology to automate the precise tuning process that was once only possible through expert human intervention. For instance, MINAS A7 equipped with precAIse TUNING (AI-based automated tuning) offers ultraprecise positioning accuracy through simple initial settings. Similarly, all three servo systems have been designed to enhance productivity of machines, people, and applications by adapting quickly and intuitively. Designed to meet the evolving needs of Indian manufacturing industry these servo system solutions reflect Industrial Devices Division’s commitment to India’s industrial automation and thus, helping enterprises in their digital transformation journey.”
