Motion Control Industries

At Heason, we are Motion Control specialists. Motion Control is all around us and is a concept used within its own industry and among many others.

We can provide a wide range of products and systems to implement motion control solutions across many different industries 

Motion Control can be defined as the process of measuring the movement, speed or force of individual processes within a device and controlling those movements to a very precise degree. Usually, applications involving motion control require a very quick response time and movement with a high degree of accuracy.

The benefit of introducing motion control to your application will be to improve its performance, reliability and efficiency.

Motion Control Industries

Specialist motion engineering, design and manufacturing services are provided by Heason in the following industries:

Food and Beverage – bottle filling applications, labelling processes and many other aspects of this industry require motion control products. To comply with industry standards these products need to be wash-down capable and high hygiene compliance.

Industrial Automation – combining mechanical, electromechanical, motion control and software products we are able to design and build bespoke solutions and systems used within industrial automation.

Manufacturing and Automation – Motion control devices are used within manufacturing and automation such as precise position of products on the conveyer, conveyer belt speed or indexing and direction.

Aerospace and Defence – Within this industry, motion control products are required for use in missile guidance simulation, gun mounts, gun positioning, surveillance targeting and tracking systems and many more.

Medical Industry – Many applications require very quick, precise movements, and like food and beverage, there are many different industry standards which are required. If you are looking for a product for a medical application, please contact us to ensure the product is well suited. 

Printing and Packaging Industry – Motion control products are used to help with the high demand for plastic reduction within this industry. This industry often uses the very latest technology to speed up processes and to reduce waste to keep ahead of competition. 

Renewable Energy Development – Motion control is well used within renewable energy sector. Particularly on wind farms as well as working closely with manufacturing OEMs and research organisations in developing technologies for renewable energy. 

Simulation and Motorsport – Motion control products can be used to provide highly dynamic simulation of real-world road tracking systems. This is desired in motorsport and other industries.

Transport – Motion control products are used within various transportation systems, particularly newer modes of transport such as ROVs and autonomous vehicles

Waste Management – Motion control systems can be implemented to improve efficiency and productivity within recycling and waste management.
