IMS Research's (Wellingborough, UK; Austin, TX) most recent automation survey, released Jan. 7, found that users are moving to more decentralized control solutions that use intelligent field devices. Of companies that purchase servo motion systems, some 53.6% said that drives with integrated position control functionality would be used in their automation systems within three years.

Easy set-up and high performance capabilities are driving growth in this market. Machine builders find intelligent servo drives a better solution for developing and building modular motion control systems.

The survey also found that servo motors with integrated drive and position control electronics are also set to experience significant growth, and that more than a third of the companies surveyed expected to purchase these products within three years.
