Rockwell Automation has announced it has agreed to purchase MagneMotion, a manufacturer of intelligent conveying systems used across a broad range of industrial applications, including packaging and material handling.

“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. 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,”

 said Marco Wishart, vice president and general manager of Rockwell Automation’s motion control business.

MagneMotion will be integrated into Rockwell Automation’s motion business, within its Architecture & Software segment.
