Rockwell Automation today announced it has expanded its motion control business by completing the acquisition of MagneMotion, a leading manufacturer of patented, high-performance conveyor systems with servo-controlled independent cart technology. The addition of this new offering will integrate into existing Rockwell Automation control, safety and sensing solutions to help manufacturers more safely, quickly and easily transport products and heavy loads between machines and throughout a plant.

Developed by Ph.D.-level researchers from MIT, the MagneMotion systems are designed for applications of almost any length, speed and thrust requirements, with no cables limiting the motion of the vehicle or moving frame. With linear synchronous motor technology, the systems help manufacturers achieve higher throughput and greater flexibility to run a variety of products through and between machines.

This is the second major investment made by Rockwell Automation to build its motion control business; in 2014, the company acquired Jacobs Automation and its iTRAK system. “This innovative technology complements our current offering and is particularly useful for customers in automotive manufacturing and general assembly, packaging, and medical device manufacturing, where there is a significant need for careful and precise >movement of many different products and parts,” said Marco Wishart, vice president and general manager, motion control business, Rockwell Automation. “The acquisition allowsRockwell Automation to expand its motion control offering in additional regions and use its global infrastructure to support this business as it continues to grow,” Wishart added.

By augmenting its motion control offering with high-performance conveyor systems that can be fully integrated with its existing products, Rockwell Automation aims to complement and strengthen its market position, increase its domain expertise, and further expand its technology offering for collaborators and customers worldwide.

“We look forward to helping Rockwell Automation customers capture the benefits of using advanced motion control solutions in their plants and across their machine network,” said Todd Webber, general manager of MagneMotion.
