USA Distributor Conference 2018...

Events Trio US conference underway in Fort Lauderdale, FL. New products and features being presented including a new EtherCAT controller... The Flex-6 Nano!




Gapp Automation, Absolute Moco and Trio on the Silver Screen...

Gapp were invited by Absolute Moco to control the position loop for a hydraulic ram used in various film sequences. In normal operation, the ram was opening and closing at full speed with no control.

Gapp proposed a Trio MC508 with SSI encoder feedback from a Siko wire pull encoder. The customer replaced the standard hydraulic valve for a proportional valve that could be controlled via a +/- 10V analogue output signal.

Once the position loop had been implemented, the SFX team requested some help with the second phase of the project. They had to build a six axes hexapod with hydraulic rams. To control the rig, they required a GIMBAL to be able to teach the system the movements required and to be able to edit and play back the sequence.

Since the original development for the film ‘LIFE’ the software and hardware has been further developed by the SFX team and the solution has been used in other film projects. Gapp has been involved with the additional developments for each movie. Gapp continues to be part of the SFX development using Trio Motion Coordinators.

Thank you to Absolute Moco for permission to use the video clip.

What Others Say About Trio

First and foremost, hats off to the team for demo of the RPS with the pallet template . Dennis and Jason were both raving about the Trio front end and control capabilities and what a nice looking, clean mechanical and controls package we had to present.

Shane Lay - Neff Engineering, USA

For those of us who have spent our lives in motion control it is easy to forget that many new customers have no previous experience of motion control. To them it is just a word. However when all is said and done the Trio is probably the most powerful I have ever had my hands on.

Richard Colson - Total Motion Systems, UK

When a customer asks me, why use Trio? I say, if you have you wouldn’t be asking me.

Matt Sim - ISTECH Automation, USA

We are all very impressed with your response and implementation, and it suits our application perfectly.

After looking for work-arounds for the last two days, it only took 30 minutes to understand, implement and test the two functions which certainly tells me you have designed a very intelligent and intuitive system.

Autronics - Yangebup, Australia

Tony, Your help and timely response was crucial to getting this job done, I wanted to let you know how much I appreciate it.

This is my first real application with Trio, and although it wasn't a very complicated job I needed it to go quickly to meet the delivery.

Everything about this controller was perfect for the application and the software was very simple to work with. Trio will get my vote for future applications where applicable.

Thanks again, great first experience and excellent customer support.

Steve Veremeychik - Axis Inc

The machine ran 460 labels/minute, with a speed of app. 58 m/mins, easily within the precision-requirements of the customer - This is actually 50% faster then needed!

Nicolai Hanssing - Delta Elektronik A/S

The performance of MC405 it's incredible, we have increased the machine speed and the control of the drive has more accuracy compared to the Euro205.

Riccardo Lamieri - United Palletizer, Bologna S.r.l.


I have to hand it to you guys... the products are great, robust, scalable, flexible, cost effective and with great form factors!

Please pass it along to the folks at the home office and if you have someone on the fence and need a customer for them to call, please give them my info.

Thanks again for the great products and outstanding support.

Jack Chopper - Filamatic, USA

Two new P730 modules were sent immediately by Express Delivery Service after my distributor made a call, was delivered to him the very same day. After that, he kindly sent them by a bus from Slovenia to Belgrade, Serbia.

My delivery guy took them and brought them to the workshop in less than an hour. So, the modules were delivered in 36 hours after I made a request! They are now at the machine, working perfectly! I thank all of you guys so much for what I call the real support!

Zeljko - Serbia

Thank you for having us at the classes last week. Training is very important for us to properly service our customers and work efficiently. In these difficult economic times it becomes increasingly difficult to find room in the budget for training employees.

To have our technicians go through a class of the caliber that you provide at no cost is a tremendous boost for our company. Every bit of profit margin we receive from our increased proficiency will be especially important in the current state of our market. We truly appreciate the support.

Patrick Myers - Joseph Machine Company, USA

We are commissioning our first Trio controller, the software it’s great, so easy to use.

César Jiménez, Ing, MSc - Smart Projects Systems SAS

Having dealt with the CANOpen state machines on another manufacturer's product, I can honestly say that I am glad that most of the EtherCAT protocol and state machines are handled behind the scenes in the Trio!

Frank Duren - Flexible Services

Yesterday a customer approved the instalation of our supply in their factory after testing the machine with the MC664-X.

There are 5 EtherCAT axes... We incorpored advanced diagnostics and have full local and remote access to all components over ethernet

We want to thank Trio for the help. Without it we couldn't have completed the job to the level that we wished for.
