The Pioneer and Leader in Fully Integrated Motion Control
Moog Animatics offers the most highly integrated automation solutions in the industry. Starting with the SmartMotor™, the world’s first fully-integrated servo system, and extending through a large variety of I/O, machine control and linear actuator products. Moog Animatics offers total solutions with a much smaller footprint, lower cost and a simplicity that reduces your machine development and build time – getting you to market faster.
For over 28 years, Moog Animatics has been providing customers in a wide variety of indus- tries with the products and customer service to help them succeed. Moog Animatics’ products are at the heart of applications ranging from material handling, pan/tilt, winding/spooling, process tension control to biomedical and life sciences. Our returning customers are a testament to our continued innovation and support.
A Complete Motion Control System Inside the SmartMotor™
What makes the Moog Animatics SmartMotor by far the most powerful integrated motor in the industry is its unique ability to control an entire machine. The SmartMotor is not just a product — it is a complete motion control system and a byproduct of an innovative design philosophy. The unsurpassed programming ease, networking capability, highly flexible and expandable I/O, and high power density servo performance is exactly what you should expect from the pioneer and recognized global leader of truly integrated motion control. Our line of advanced rotary and linear motion control products feature the ability to perform multi-axis motion, including standalone coordinated motion. The SmartMotor brings real-world addition- al savings to the machine builder by eradicating other expensive and complicated elements in the machine such as PLCs (if desired), sensors, I/O blocks and control cabinets.
Easily integrating with not only PC-based control systems, the SmartMotor also integrates with PLC technology and a wide variety of communication protocols. Additional axes can be easily added in the field, bringing additional processing power, but without parallel growth of existing cabinet size. This simplicity and ease of use goes beyond just “compactness.” It results in overall reduced machine development time (shortening time to market), lower total machine cost, greater field reliability, and simplified machine design and build time eliminating heavy procurement and support activities.
