2G Motion System: Best by Design

The optimal concept assumes that combining the best possible component for each motion function will yield a cohesive system that delivers superior machine performance. Alternatively, many single-source suppliers offer a prepackaged selection of components that have been force-fit together, providing convenience at the sacrifice of optimal system performance.
