Solutions for Packaging Machinery OEMs

Meeting the Needs of Machine Builders

The demands for ever-increasing throughput and reduced downtime. Higher overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) and better predictive maintenance. To provide increasing functionality while reining in costs. To deliver equipment on time with quick and efficient service for the life of the machine. These are some of the challenges that packaging machinery and equipment OEMs face on a daily basis. To help OEMs meet these challenges is the driving force behind the development of our motion control solutions.


Precision motion control, industrial Ethernet communications, shrinking control cabinets, multi-turn absolute encoders that increase uptime. These are some of the functions required for modern packaging equipment, and we deliver on all of them across a broad range of motor and drive solutions.


The competition is stiff. Purchasing is cutting costs. Performance must not suffer. You need a manufacturing partner with might. Backed by one of the largest motor manufacturers in the world, we have the capacity and flexibility to meet your cost targets without sacrificing the performance of your machine.


The best product at the best price will not help you much if it does not arrive at your dock on time. With an extensive inventory of motion control devices on the shelves of our warehouse in California, USA, you can rest easy knowing your equipment will not be held up waiting for delivery of key components.

Products that Provide Tangible Benefits

Reduced Downtime

One of the most effective methods for reducing downtime is to decrease the amount of time it takes for motion control axes to power on and become functional. This can be done by switching to multi-turn, absolute encoders. TruCount™ Encoders are the ultimate in hassle-free and reliable position control. They eliminate homing runs at power-up by constantly monitoring motor position, even when powered off for extended periods of time.

StepSERVO™ Integrated Motors with TruCount™ Absolute Encoders

TruCount™ multi-turn, absolute encoders are currently available on the following StepSERVO™ Integrated Motors:

Increased Throughput

Step motors offer precision position control at an affordable price. When mixed with low-cost encoders and closed-loop servo control firmware, the result is a higher performance motor and drive system that increases torque up to 40% while consuming as little as 1/3 the power of conventional step motor systems. StepSERVO™ is the Next Evolution in Step Motor Technology. Learn more about it in this white paper.

StepSERVO™ Integrated Motors

These integrated motors provide greater torque and faster acceleration rates than conventional step motor systems, while operating more efficiently and quietly.

StepSERVO™ Drives and Motors

The same great performance as StepSERVO™ Integrated Motors with separate motor and drive components for applications that require the smallest motor dimensions.

Shrinking Control Panels

By integrating drive and amplifier electronics directly into the motor housing, integrated motors save on space and wiring over systems comprised of separate motor and drive components. By eliminating the external motor drive, control cabinets get smaller. By reducing the number of cables in the system, machine builders save money and reduce complexity in distributed motion control systems.

MDX Integrated Servo Motors

Simplify servo component selection, reduce wiring, reduce costs, save space, and design faster with integrated servo motors.

Integration with Ease

Easily integrating motion control into new and existing equipment requires components that support common industrial networking protocols such as EtherNet/IP, Modbus, EtherCAT, CANopen and Profinet. Drives and integrated motors that support these different protocols, with on-board communication ports and without the need for external gateways, are the most efficient approach to incorporating motion control in distributed control systems.

EtherNet/IP Products

ODVA Conformant motion control solutions with on-board dual-port communications can be added to any new or existing industrial ethernet network using the EtherNet/IP protocol. Support for a wide range of PLCs, including Add On Instructions for the most popular controllers, make applying these solutions quick and easy.

EtherCAT Products

These motor and drive systems are built for use on high performance EtherCAT networks. They are compatible with a range of EtherCAT master controllers and are fully supported by our in-house team of motion control experts. All axes support CoE functionality and motion control modes defined by CiA 402.
