Consistently Delivering Best-in-Class Performance

Designed using state-of-the-art technologies and offered with feature sets targeted to solve the most demanding applications, our product lines optimize performance.

We know that no two motion control challenges are alike. We develop each mechatronic solution with the latest advanced technologies for your project’s specific application requirements. Using miniature precision encoders and direct drive motors, we push the boundaries to deliver unparalleled results.
MicroE products are built with PurePrecision™ and VeraPath™ technologies. The MicroE brand of miniature precision optical encoders is available in several form factors and mounting options, with incremental and absolute interfaces and resolutions up to 1.2 nm. A wide selection of rotary and linear scales are available, delivering accuracy up to 1xm.
Zettlex brand position sensor technology uses a unique inductive technique, providing precision and signal stability irrespective of environmental conditions. The basic principles are similar to traditional inductive proximity switches or measuring transformers but rather than wire windings or spools, Zettlex position sensors use printed circuit boards (PCBs).
The Applimotion brand of direct drive motors and stages are the product of unparalleled application expertise and performance-driven design. Optimized solutions range from direct drive motor components to fully engineered, validated, and tested products and value-add assemblies. Agility™ slotless rotary motors and stages feature ZeroCog™ technology.
