    Default Anybody repair Yaskawa AC drives?

    Yaskawa wants a flat fee of about 1600.00 bucks ,I thinking if I was to chance it and pay actual bench time,the price should be much less.

    Nothing fried I was warming the machine up and excessive current alarm came up.
    I have a borrowed drive and it works fine
    But their going to want their borrowed drive back

    Not sure how they quote/charge things out but they are on my list try next time I need a drive looked at.

    Edit:
    I watched one of there guys work on a machine I was considering purchasing. I wish they weren't so far away from me, I'd use them for onsite repairs.

    Are you saying Yaskawa gave you a loaner drive to use while yours is out for repair? Wow, whomever you borrowed it from, that's pretty nice of them to keep you up and running. $1600 for a warrantied repair doesn't sound like they're really taking advantage of the situation. New spindle drives are generally quite expensive. From my vantage point it sounds like the service is worth it to me.

    EDIT:
    I almost forgot to mention that www.galco.com does warrantied repair work on Yaskawa drives as well.

    $1600 sounds like a new VFD to me, what size and voltage are you talking about?

    NOT YASKAWA my local machine sales has a used machine in, they loaned it to me.
    Expensive!!! new 6000.00

    Im just thinking several hrs at a bench and parts = 1600.00 maybe I dont know seems excessive

    their is several companies that repair those drives you should be able to find one, but in all reality they are only a little higher in price by maybe 400.

    We use a little shop here in Burlington NC called Vance Industrial Electronics. We had a Yaskawa rebuilt about 4-5 years ago. Still running strong. Only(?) charged us $800. There's a girl works there named Rhonda that did ours. Like I said, still running strong.

    IES just gave me some reasonable quotes on drives for my Hitachi Seiki and Hardinge, but I haven't sent them in yet. Let us know how they do.

    I've got 2 F7 Yasakawas, when one of them puked, I called Yaskawa, they diagnosed the problem (bad board), $300 and
    about 10 minutes to put it in...

    I'm not sure if all their products are like that, but it was one reason I went with that particular drive over the Baldor.
    There is a ton of info and manuals on their site also.
