The extremely small servo drive CMMT-ST performs positioning and movement tasks up to 300 W, highly efficiently, dynamically, and precisely, point-to-point or by interpolation. And it can be easily commissioned in no time, via the Festo Automation Suite and the integrated auto-tuning function.


Very efficient for tasks with low power requirements up to 300 W
Ideal for positioning tasks, point-to-point and interpolating motion solutions 
Suitable for Ethernet-based bus systems and can be directly integrated into the system environments of many manufacturers
50% more compact than the smallest CMMT-AS for ensuring optimal space-saving installations
Auto-tuning supports simple commissioning of rotary and linear movements, using mechanical systems from Festo and third-party suppliers
Standard safety functions are included
Optimized for use with stepper motors like the tried and tested EMMS-ST

A powerful storm system known as a Derecho occurred Monday afternoon over a large portion of east central Iowa. Cedar Rapids was hit particularly hard with sustained winds reaching 110 mph in some locations.

Our manufacturing and repair facility at EHA (Electro-Hydraulic Automation) had a portion of its roof torn off during the storm causing considerable rain and debris to enter the building.

A big thanks to all those employees (who were able) that came in on Tuesday to help with cleanup and parts & inventory reorg. We are getting back to normal but waiting for the rest of the city to “catch up” as utilities, fuel, and wide spread cleanup continues.

Thanks to all customers for your patience. We are now back online and able to support all our facilities.
