AMC ships 1 millionth servo drive
AMC servo drives reportedly control more than 1.5 million motors, since many of the units have multi-axis capability on a single printed-circuit board.
Advanced Motion Controls (AMC) has announced the shipment of its 1,000,000th servo drive near the end of Nov. 2005. The event was a significant milestone and accomplishment in the company’s history, considering that AMC was founded in 1988 as a two-person start-up.
To celebrate this achievement, AMC employees built special commemorative servo drive units for thes in the world, noted for the reliability of its motion-control solutions. Servo drives from AMC span global industrial and commercial applications from medical diagnostic imaging and radiological treatment systems, semiconductor manufacturing, and multi-axis robots to animatronic/camera motion, AGV/electric vehicle controls, and machine tool and automated assembly systems—among others.
