ITT Launches Automation Grade Brushless Servo Motor

New product designed for medical, packaging applications

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y.--ITT Corporation's (NYSE: ITT) Torque Systems brand has long provided engineered motion control and automation products for a variety of industries. It is now expanding its line of high-quality and reliable products by launching an automation grade brushless servo motor designed for medical and packaging applications.


A servo motor provides automated equipment with the speed and motion control necessary to function efficiently and reliably, based on feedback from other machinery components. Medical automation applications for the new servo motor include surgical robotics, diagnostic machines and analyzers, while packaging automation applications include bottle capping and package filling and labeling.

"ITT manufactures products and solutions for key end markets, and these technologies are recognized industry-wide for their quality, reliability and overall value," said Jeff Weisbeck, director, product management and sales, for ITT's Control Technologies business. "With this new line of servo motors, we are enhancing our ability to serve the needs of our customers."

IPR Robotics - Right-Sized 7th Axis Robot Linear Rails

IPR Robotics offers a wide range of servo-driven 7th axis linear rails for industrial robots. These rails come in ten different sizes and are constructed from modular high strength extruded aluminum sections to handle payloads of 100 kg to 1600 kg or from steel to handle 2000 kg payloads. This variety of rail sizes allows each application to be sized correctly, controlling the space required and the price point. The drive train design of these rails utilizes helical gear-racks and is proven over 10 years to be repeatable and reliable, even in tough foundry applications.
