Galil Motion Control Celebrates 25th Anniversary of Shipping Their First Motion Controller

Rocklin, CA-August 13, 2008- Galil Motion Control, industry pioneer in motion control technology, recently celebrated their 25th Anniversary. On July 5, 1983 Galil shipped their first motion controller, the DMC-100, which was the first microprocessor-based servo motion controller using solely digital control that did not require tachometer feedback.

Since the introduction of their first servo motion controller, Galil has gone on to deliver over 500,000 motion controllers worldwide.

Galil is currently shipping their 5th generation motion controllers-the Accelera Series which provide ultra high-speed and precision. Features of the series include multi-axis coordinated motion, advanced PID with velocity and acceleration feed forward, multitasking, and non-volatile memory for programs, variables and arrays. Galil also sells plug-in, multi-axis drives for steppers and servos which save money, space and wiring.

Galil has recently expanded into the I/O market with the introduction of its new RIO-471x0 Pocket PLC. This new product combines intelligence along with 16 analog and 32 digital I/O in a cost-effective, compact package. It can be used stand-alone or connected to the Ethernet for unlimited I/O expansion.

Galil is privately held and has been profitable for over 94 consecutive quarters. For information about Galil and any of its motion control offerings visit or contact Lisa Wade, VP-Marketing and Sales, at Galil Motion Control, Inc., 270 Technology Way, Rocklin, CA 95765, Ph. 800-377-6329 or email
