Highland Controls, which focuses on motion control product selection and application programming, today released an updated web site with the industry's top brands and free resources.

"Our new design is much more user friendly," Highland Controls President Brian Beal says. "We've had excellent feedback from our customers and suppliers and included their advice in the new design."

With the redesign, Highland Controls added areas for industry resources, including the company's new educational guide, "How to Make Your Best Moves with Motion Control Systems."

New sections also showcase leading brands and select products from Pro-Dex, Nook, ABB, Specview, Procon Electronics, Beijer Electronics and others. Diverse products include servo drives, stepper motors, linear actuators, ball screw assemblies, operator interface terminals (OITs), and screw jacks.

"We wanted to make it easy for companies to learn about the products and systems that can best meet their needs with the right plan," Beal says. "We're positioned to help them make the right decisions."

We like to take on projects that others are unable to do. Motion control and machine vision are just a couple of our specialties.
