SCHAUMBURG, IL (May 2020) – In a collaborative effort to support the healthcare industry during this COVID-19 crisis, HEIDENHAIN is working with Applied Motion Products, Inc. to expedite critical components to a large manufacturer of ventilators. Now in various stages of delivery, the Applied Motion Products’ StepSERVO™ Integrated Motors equipped with HEIDENHAIN’s RENCO encoders are making their way into the production of 5,000 new life-saving medical devices.
Applied Motion Products solved heat problems associated with a peristaltic pump system that supplies materials to a bioreactor by replacing open-loop step motors with closed-loop step motors. A peristaltic pump, with internal tubing that separates media from pump components, offers a sanitary method to supply the bioreactor with various fluids to grow cell cultures in the development of new medicines. Step motors are used to drive the pump head, compressing and releasing the pump tubing to move media into the bioreactor chamber.
Applied Motion Products is excited to announce that we have purchased land to build new corporate headquarters in Morgan Hill, CA, located in Santa Clara County at the southern tip of Silicon Valley. The new headquarters will consolidate all U.S. operations (now conducted in two separate buildings in Watsonville, CA) including production, warehouse, operations, engineering, customer service and executive management in one location for greater efficiencies and synergy among the different departments.
A range of servo drives, stepper drives and integrated motors from Applied Motion Products conform to the ODVA specification for EtherNet/IP communications. The ODVA Conformance program mandates that vendors use a common network interface to ensure interoperability with products from other vendors. Products must pass rigorous testing by an authorized Test Service Provider before being declared ODVA conformant.
Applied Motion Products is excited to announce that Lane Andrews has joined our Application Engineering team.

The addition of Lane into our Application Engineering department is a sign of the recent growth at Applied Motion as we continually strive to strengthen support services for our customers and sales channel partners.
We are pleased to announce the release of a new application note (APPN0048) specifically created for programmers using Python, the popular computer programming language. The application note can be used with our stepper and servo motors to quickly and efficiently integrate motion control into Python scripts and applications. The application note and its accompanying sample code guide Python programmers in sending SCL commands to one or more axes of stepper and/or servo motors.
Applied Motion Products is happy to welcome Josh Burns as our new Northwest Regional Sales Manager. Josh will be working to grow sales and support our customers across the territory including Northern California, Oregon, Washington, Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, Utah, Nevada, and British Columbia.
Applied Motion Products is pleased to announce the introduction of a closed-loop linear actuator that offers greater acceleration rates, shorter move times and higher throughput than conventional step motor-based linear actuators. Creating peak torques up to 50% higher than holding torque, TBSM11 Linear Actuators accelerate and decelerate faster, making them ideal for high throughput processes that require linear actuators to start and stop quickly.
Applied Motion is thrilled to announce our new employee Jesse Barr to the team as Application Engineer – Servo Products. Before joining Applied Motion, Jesse worked in industrial automation and aerospace industries. There he worked on a variety of servo controlled applications across North America supporting new and existing applications that ranged from a single axis to over 70 axes of motion. Before beginning his professional career, Jesse received a degree in Mechanical Engineering from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.
