Elmo Motion Control targets demand from UK’s smart manufacturing for its range of intelligent servo drives and motion control solutions
Birmingham, UK – May 22nd, 2017 Elmo Motion Control has expanded its UK operations with the opening of a dedicated sales and service centre in Burntwood Business Park, West Midlands.
The company has been supplying its specialty servo drives and motion control solutions to the UK market for several years. The new centre is targeting the UK’s burgeoning automation sector, as well as printing and packaging, machine builders, medical, robotics, automated guided vehicles, remotely operated vehicles, inspection machines and harsh environment applications.
The company’s UK managing director, Gary Busby comments: “Elmo’s products bring a level of technology not yet seen in the UK marketplace. The portfolio is generating much interest among original equipment manufacturers (OEMs).
“Whether producing touchscreens or solar cells, guiding a missile or MRI scanners, optically testing silicon substrate or tracking a satellite, precise synchronisation of velocity and location is critical. Developing innovative, feature-rich, high power density and ultra-compact products is what sets us apart.
“We have a first class pedigree within the motion control arena. We can enhance productivity through improved performance and perfect motion. We reduce cabinet sizes, component count and overall costs through high performance and size reduction.”
Elmo Motion Control was founded in 1988 and today it designs, develops and sells servo drives, multi-axis motion controllers and interface software. With headquarters in Israel, the rising demand for its innovative breakthrough products has resulted in a dedicated presence in the USA, Germany, Italy, Poland, China, Korea and now the UK.
Elmo employees more than 350 staff worldwide including 70 engineering experts. During 2015/16 the company substantially upgraded its production capabilities in Israel. It also opened a manufacturing centre in Poland to meet growing demand for its products from across Europe. Both manufacturing facilities feature a full testing and burn-in infrastructure.
“Demand for Elmo’s products has grown immensely and we have responded by tripling the production capacity of Elmo Israel and by opening our own production in the EU,” says Haim Monhait, Elmo Motion Control’s founder and CEO. “This expansion illustrates our continued commitment to, and investment in, the design and manufacturing of the highest quality, most advanced, efficient and powerful servo drives and motion-controllers in the industry.”
Elmo provides comprehensive field proven motion control solutions, from initial concept and design through to production and implementation. Elmo’s R&D department combines intelligent motion control technologies, real-time programming and control algorithms with advanced digital hardware – all controlled by the Elmo application studio; a software environment that cuts integration time and maintenance costs.
