Rockwell Automation has completed the acquisition of MagneMotion, a manufacturer of conveyor systems with servo-controlled independent cart technology. The company will integrate into existing Rockwell Automation control, safety and sensing solutions to help manufacturers transport products and heavy loads between machines and throughout a plant. Rockwell Automation aims to use the acquisition to strengthen and expand its technology offering for collaborators and customers worldwide. 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 are designed to help manufacturers achieve higher throughput and greater flexibility to run a variety of products through and between machines.
