Rockwell Automation to acquire Jacobs Automation and its iTRAK System

Nov 12, 2013

Rockwell Automation has agreed to purchase Jacobs Automation, the leader in intelligent track motion control technology. Jacobs Automation provides a motion control solution called the iTRAK System. This technology improves performance across a wide range of packaging, material handling and other applications for the global machine builder market.

iTRAK's technology enables independent control of multiple magnetically propelled movers on straight and curved paths. The system enables machine and equipment builders to reduce cost and complexity, while allowing end users to standardize on one platform for better optimization, improved reliability and faster system deployment.
