  • New Application Note for Python Programmers


    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.

  • New Power Supplies Available


    Many of our best-selling, most popular motion control products require 24 or 48 volts DC to power them. That means to put these motors and drives to work you need an industrial-grade DC power supply to provide a steady and reliable source of current and voltage to each axis.

  • Congratulations to NIF on New Laser Energy Record


    Applied Motion Products congratulates Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) and their National Ignition Facility (NIF) on the record level of energy they fired earlier this year. NIF successfully fired a record 2.15 megajoules (MJ) of energy into its target chamber, a 10 percent improvement over the previous NIF record set in 2012. What’s more, this new record is 15 percent higher than what was originally envisioned possible during NIF’s design.

  • Integrated Servo Motors for Mobile Robots


    Central to smart factory development, mobile robots navigate materials from one location to another, freeing human resources to focus on more complex and valuable tasks. While central software systems network fleets of mobile robots together, advanced AI supported by sophisticated software and componentry enable robots to communicate among themselves as well as automatically sense and react to the physical world of people and objects around them.

  • New AOIs for RSLogix5000 and EtherNet/IP


    Applied Motion Products is pleased to announce the release of new Add On Instructions (AOI) for Rockwell Automation’s RSLogix5000™ software. These new AOIs support Applied Motion’s latest EtherNet/IP firmware and facilitate the rapid integration of Applied Motion drives and integrated motors into PLC projects.

  • Don't Take our Word for It that StepSERVO™ Motors Generate More Torque


    Watch the video that compares equally sized motors – one open loop and one closed-loop. StepSERVO™ closed-loop integrated motors outperform traditional open loop step motors in many ways, including torque. Torque is important for today’s high-throughput production machinery that requires motors to operate reliably with high acceleration and deceleration rates.
