AMK Automation

Let’s Make Motion Control Simple

AMK Automation is different from other industrial automation companies. We’re not about canned “solutions” and one-size-fits-all architectures. We take a smarter and simpler approach to advanced motion control, helping you build better machines, faster.

It’s your machine—drive and control it the way you want. Our cabinet-free framework frees you to engineer your motion control across a modular, distributed system.

Our Approach
prod-illustration-hybrid-500x373.png Hybrid

We think “one-size-fits-all” motion control just doesn’t work. That’s why our hybrid frameworks make it easy to integrate decentralized and cabinet-based components into one smart system.

Our Approach

CENTRALIZED SYSTEM

Based on your answers, the most effective and stable motion control framework for your machine locates PLC and drive components in a control cabinet. However, it may be possible to modify certain motor sizing decisions to use a hybrid framework.

Hybrid System

Based on your answers, a hybrid motion control framework will provide the best system. By combining decentralized drives, power supplies and other components with a selective use of cabinet-based components, you can create a smart machine design with modular flexibility.
