Motors, Motion Control & Robotics

Motor control, motion and robotics are integral to many automation builds, from simple conveyor speed control, to complex packaging motion control and pick and place systems.
We know you need to continually develop your design, meet customer needs and stay on track, which is why our range is designed to help you optimise your build. We can even help you make cost savings by switching to our own brand, RS PRO, as an alternative to leading brand motor control solutions.
