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.
Animatics' 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 eliminating 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 growth of the existing cabinet size.
The simplicity and ease of use goes beyond just "compactness;" it results in overall reduced machine development time, lower total machine cost, greater field reliability, and simplified machine design and build time.
