Upcoming Moog Animatics Institute

I’m very pleased with the useful content of the program.
Erin Doherty, Braas Co.
Upcoming Moog Animatics Institute Dates September 29 - October 3, 2014

Our first east coast Moog Animatics Institute, to be held on September 29 – Ocotber 3, 2014 in San Jose, California. 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

This Institute will feature training on our existing Class 5 products and will include our new Class 6 SmartMotor products, marking the latest and most powerful evolution of our innovative, fully integrated designs.  These products will provide a myriad of new features and improvements, including the option of EtherCAT and PROFINET communication protocols and Moog Animatics' current and future developments in engineering, sales and production, an in-depth coverage of applications and success stories, and behind-the-scenes information on Class 5, Combitronic communication technology and the new IP 65 rated industrial integrated servo line.

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.
