Motion Systems

Automated Motion Systems can provide the service of wiring S&H motion controllers and RTA stepper drives into cabinets with switchgear, terminals, fan cooling, power supplies and safety components. This allows systems to be programmed and thoroughly tested before attaching motors and mechanical components.

Typical applications include cut to length control, 2 and 3 axis contouring machines, punch controllers, winding machines, tube bending machines, gear cutting, winding machines and plasma cutting tubes for joining pipes at angles.
