Old drives can be replaced with modern units, thereby improving reliability and eliminating problems with the unavailability of spare parts. In addition, older DC drives can be replaced with modern AC technology resulting in a reduction of maintenance costs.

Our revolutionary drive controller, MPS Open Motion Control, means that conventional AC motors can now be used for shaftless presses instead of servo motors. This not only reduces the cost of the motors but also makes a much wider range of motor ratings available (from 3 kW to 3 MW!).
