Rockwell Automation to acquire Jacobs Automation
Rockwell Automation has announced that it has agreed to purchase Jacobs Automation, a leader in intelligent track motion control technology. Jacobs Automation provides a motion control solution called the iTRAK System. This technology improves performance across a wide range of packaging, material handling and other applications for the global machine builder market.
iTRAK's technology enables independent control of multiple magnetically propelled movers on straight and curved paths. The system enables machine and equipment builders to reduce cost and complexity, while allowing end users to standardise on one platform for better optimisation, improved reliability and faster system deployment.
