These conveyance platforms act as the foundation of your manufacturing automation processes, allowing you to create powerful world-class automation.

                                What is linear motion technology (LMT)?
                                A basic linear motion system integrates a power component, such as a motor; a thrust mechanism, such as an actuator; and a guidance infrastructure, such as a rail. Unlike a traditional motor which creates a rotating movement, linear motion technologies created a linear forward and backward motion.
