What makes the Animatics SmartMotor by far the most powerful Integrated Motor in the industry is its unique ability to control an entire machine.  The SmartMotor is not just a product; it is a byproduct of an innovative design philosophy.  The unsurpassed combination of programmability ease, networking capability, highly flexible and expandable I/O, and high power density servo performance is exactly what you should expect from the pioneer and recognized global leader of truly integrated motion control.

The Animatics SmartMotor is a complete, compact, and user-friendly integrated motion control system that actually meets the textbook definition of a robot.  Our line of advanced rotary and linear motion control products feature the ability to perform multi-axis motion including stand-alone coordinated motion. While priced similarly to other integrated servos, the SmartMotor brings real-world additional savings to the machine builder by eradicating other expensive and complicated elements in the machine such as PLCs, sensors, I/O Blocks, and control cabinets.  Additional axes can be easily added in the field, bringing additional processing power, but without parallel growth of existing cabinet size.

This simplicity and ease of use goes beyond just “compactness;” it results in overall reduced machine development time (shortening time-to-market), lower total machine cost, greater field reliability, and simplified machine design and build time, eliminating heavy procurement and support activities.

Animatics SmartMotor is by far the most powerful Integrated Motor in the industry because of its unique ability to control an entire machine.Will your new machine design be rooted in old 1978 PLC technology or will you take advantage of advanced Animatics SmartTechnology™ to gain a dramatic savings in time and money that will put you miles ahead of your competition?  New technology results from new, innovative approaches after careful study of the weaknesses and limitations of prior methods and technology.  SmartTechnology enables you to be miles ahead of your competition in terms of time to market and cost savings.By far the greatest benefit of using the SmartMotor is that it lets you trump your competition by getting a dominant product to market weeks or potentially months sooner.
