Heason Technology has appointed Jon Howard as its new managing director for the UK subsidiary of Elmo Motion Control. As a longstanding UK distribution partner Heason works closely with Elmo - combining servo drives and advanced network motion controllers from the motion systems designer and manufacturer's range as part of its own motion systems integration service. Jon Howard is no stranger to Heason - or indeed to Elmo Motion - as many customers will remember his heading Heason Technology for several years up to late 2018.
The new appointment at Elmo Motion UK coincides with the imminent launch of a brand new range of the company's Platinum line servo drives. The new line features what Heason refers to as "Cutting edge technology and industry leading servo functionality combined with ultra-fast EtherCAT networking and advanced machine function processing" that suits high-performance motion control and automation applications. As part of the Platinum's advanced features, the series includes what are claimed to be the world 's smallest Functional Safety & FSoE certified servo drives. Aimed at OEM designers and machine builders that seek higher throughput, greater safety, more compact and smarter machines with flexibility as well as wide ranging functionality and ease of use, the Platinum series will be fully announced soon.
