Hoske, Control EngineeringMicroE and Applimotion have merged together to become Celera Motion. Celera Motion will develops component products and OEM solutions designed for medical, advanced industrial, scientific, and microelectronics equipment manufacturers. MicroE specializes in miniature precision optical encoders and mounting options with incremental and absolute interfaces. up to 1.2 nm. The company also develops rotary and linear scales designed to deliver accuracy up to 1μm. Applimotion develops direct drive motors and actuators designed to solve motion control system challenges. The products range from direct drive motor components to engineered, validated, and tested products and value-add assemblies. The use of the Celera Motion name is effective immediately, and will be implemented over the remainder of 2015. The existing MicroE and Applimotion product brand names and positioning will remain unchanged.
