RADFORD, VA – July 20, 2017 – Kollmorgen has been recognized by Control Design magazine as a 2017 Readers’ Choice for technology excellence in the Stepper Motor and Servo Motor categories. The Readers’ Choice awards are the result of an unaided survey of Control Design subscribers who have authority to specify, recommend or purchase industrial automation and control products. Control Design readers are asked to provide the name of the single best product vendor they have worked with in a given hardware or software category. The top five vendors in each category are then recognized in the Readers’ Choice report. Kollmorgen has been honored as a top supplier in the stepper and/or servo motor categories for each of 16 years the award has been given.
