Making a Show at Drives & Controls 2016

Last month Heason Technology exhibited at Drives & Controls - the leading UK trade show for Automation, Power Transmission and Motion Control where we introduced a number of exciting new motion products to the market.

Drives & Controls, being our first trade show for 2016, was a great opportunity to meet experienced engineers and other like-minded professionals to discuss innovative products, projects and solutions. We were delighted to welcome customers old and new to our booth.

Drives & Control Show Highlights

Ash Chury, our UK & EU Sales Manager, had the opportunity to present a video showcasing the products we had on Stand including an AKD demo kit shipped over from Kollmorgen which took centre stage along with our EtherCAT Hexapod which travelled widely throughout Europe with us last year.

In addition to these demo kits we also had a diverse range of motion control products on display including:

Our broad portfolio ofproducts ensured that customer’s motion control requirements were fully covered in one place.  Asthe leading a UK based world class motion systems integrator we were able to discuss both standard and bespoke specifications on Stand whilst working with customers to develop motion solutions for a variety of diverse applications.

Our team were also joined on Stand at Drives & Controls by Stewart Dowsett, Business Development Manager (UK, Ireland and Scandinavia) for Kollmorgen and Darren Perry, Territory Manager for Thomson Linear. This further strengthened our partner relationships and provided additional expert knowledge and advice for visitors interested in Kollmorgen and Thomson products.
