Upcoming Moog Animatics Institute
I’m very pleased with the useful content of the program.
Erin Doherty, Braas Co.
Our first east coast Moog Animatics Institute, to be held on March 18 – March 21, 2014 in Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina. The Institute is designed for our existing channel partners and will provide opportunities for advanced programmers and those needing basic programming skills, as well as industry information, sales tips, and all of your questions answered.
The amount you learn at the Moog Animatics Institute that will help you with your customers, increase your sales and deepen your product knowledge will more than compensate for the time spent with us.
It is great to have instructors who really understand automation. This made the difference.
Danny Cong, Clayton Controls

Message from the Founder
The SmartMotor™ may be painted black, but it is really very green. Consider the following:
The SmartMotor™ is made in the same shaft and frame dimensions as open-loop step motors, but uses a small fraction of the power because it only uses as much power as the load physically needs.
