Yaskawa J7 On the Way Out

November 17, 2009

Just got this message from Yaskawa Drives:

Since the J1000 has now been on the market for over a year, we would like to ensure that you have already made the transition to J1000 from J7, or are taking steps to do so over the next several months.

As such, on March 1, 2010, all J7 drives and options will be discontinued; J7 lead times will be extended to 12 weeks on December 1, 2009.

Following is a list of the key events and dates:

  • J7 stock returns will no longer be accepted effective December 1, 2009
  • Effective December 1, 2009, published J7 lead times will be extended to 12 weeks; an expedite charge for air freight may be required for improved delivery times
  • J7 production will cease on March 1, 2010
  • Orders for standard J7 product will be freely accepted before March 1, 2010 (subject to availability); orders may be accepted after March 1, 2010 only if stock is available
  • Marketing documents (price book and flyers) will be discontinued March 1, 2010
  • There are no repairs or replacement parts for J7, see support table
  • Phone support will continue to be available, as it is for any legacy product
