Motion Control and Automation

How do I design an automated device?

Automation and motion control can be used in machinery, automotive applications, manufacturing, and other applications. Automation and motion control design includes designing products that use electrical motors, hydraulics, pneumatics, and linear actuators.

When designing an automated device engineers look at the devices intended use and design it based on the fundamental factors discussed on this page

We have experience creating devices using the following motorsĀ and their associated controllers.

  • AC Brushless
  • DC Brushed/Brushless
  • Direct Drive
  • Linear
  • Stepper
  • Servo
