Rockwell Automation has completed its acquisition of  MagneMotion, a leading manufacturer of intelligent conveying systems. MagneMotion systems are used across a broad range of industrial applications including automotive and general assembly, packaging and material handling. 

The acquisition complements Rockwell Automation’s iTRAK transfer system to create the broadest portfolio of independent cart solutions in this emerging technology area. “This acquisition continues our strategy to build a portfolio of smart manufacturing technologies that brings next generation performance to our customers today,” said Marco Wishart, vice president and general manager of Rockwell Automation’s motion control business. “MagneMotion expands our existing capabilities in independent cart technology. Our recent acquisition of Jacobs Automation and its iTRAK technology is complementary to MagneMotion’s portfolio.”

He continued: “We see a future where the transportation of products within the factory, whether inside of a particular machine or between machines, will be fully controlled to optimise the productivity and flexibility of the entire process.”

Todd Webber, president and CEO of MagneMotion, added: “This deal is the logical next step in the evolution of our business, and a welcome development for MagneMotion. Rockwell Auto-mation’s leading position in plant-wide controls and industrial automation gives us the best opportunity to introduce this technology to customers. As the market continues to realise the benefits of applying independent cart technology, Rockwell Automation’s global organ-isation will be a tremendous asset.”
