Applied Motion Systems is more than a name — it describes our passion and area of excellence. Our team has been applying motion technology across industries and processes since 1995, with many of our early systems still serving as benchmarks in productivity and reliability.

Today, we remain focused on responding to new challenges demanding ever increasing precision – from picometer resolution electron beam microscope stages to automated layup of carbon fiber parts up to 40 feet long with +/-0.010-inch accuracy. In every project, we combine the best of motion and automation technologies with the competencies of a diverse set of engineering disciplines to deliver unmatched solutions for our customer.


Industry Expertise

With curiosity and persistence, we seek out opportunities to collaborate on novel motion control challenges. When we’re not developing concepts in new arenas, we’re building on our longstanding partnerships in the following industries:

  • Glass Container Production
  • Pulp and Paper / Paper Converting
  • Engineered Wood and Building Products
  • Aerospace Manufacturing
  • Specialty Machine Tools
  • High Tech and Semiconductor
  • Packaging / Film Converting
  • Renewable Energy / Utilities


The safe and collaborative interaction between human and machine is critical for a system’s viability. Our certified safety experts create solutions that elevate operator safety and continuous production performance in complex manufacturing environments.

Drive & Control System Retrofits

Drive and control system retrofits preserve investments by extending the useful life of production assets. We’ve developed retrofits for older assets that then outperform brand new machines while adding years of dependable service at a fraction of the cost of buying new. While many mechanical components are built to last, drive and control systems often are not. A system retrofit can be the best solution to improve machine safety, productivity, and reliability with minimal disruption to operations.
