the name...the mission...

The name Animatics perfectly embodies the mission of the company. The first part of the word derives from the Latin word anima meaning "to breathe life into." The second part comes from the Greek word automatos meaning "acting independently, self moving and self thinking." Animatics designs, manufactures and brings to life the ultimate integrated, motion control solution: an easily programmable servo motor without the separation of a cabinet of controls and circuits and with the independence of a drive, amplifier and encoder all in one compact package.

That’s why we call it "SmartMotor™".
Our Promise...

By specifying  Animatics and their quality integrated motion control products, you can rest assured that you are choosing the true automation solution, not just the quick fix. With Animatics, we promise you will:

  • Increase MTBF (Mean Time Between Failure): With only a quarter of the number of parts in a traditional servo system, the elimination of cabling between those parts and our robust design means fewer parts and greater reliability.
  • Increase Throughput: SmartMotor™ servos will increase the machine throughput for end users as well as increase the rate of machine replication for machine builders.
  • Reduce Costs: Fewer parts will cost you less. You can completely eliminate drive and control cabinets from your machine.
  • Reduce Development Time: Animatics' little black box truly is magic. Watch the time you used to spend integrating and packaging multiple components and dealing with an array of suppliers reappear.
  • Eliminate Field Service: There is no need to spend the time, money and resources to send a technician out to service and troubleshoot a cabinet of controls that doesn’t exist. In addition, SmartMotor™ servos can be replaced with NO SOFTWARE OR MOUNTING CHANGES.
