This will be accompanied by the construction of a new production and research facility. This will be located in the up-and-coming international business complex in Songdo City.

Songdo is one of the worlds first smart cities and was built in the South Korean free trade zone of Incheon on six square kilometres of land reclaimed from the Yellow Sea. The planned city is a centre of attraction for numerous high-tech, biotechnology and research companies that support each other and collaborate in cluster networks.

The future facility, owned and operated by ANI Motion Tech, will be part of the Knowledge and Information Industrial Complex there and will mainly manufacture precision motion control and automation equipment for the semiconductor and display market. Construction is scheduled to begin in March 2024.

Aerotech President Dr Robert Novotnak emphasises: Our investment in ANI Motion Tech is also an investment in the future of Aerotech. Through our joint growth, we are increasing our production and sales capacities. The expansion of our presence in South Korea also strengthens our position as an experienced provider of automation and motion control solutions worldwide.

Aerotech has been known since the 1970s for its high-precision and high-performance motors, drives, controls and positioning tables. The manufacturer, which has a German subsidiary in Frth, has also been developing customised motion subsystems such as positioning systems on granite structures with a base frame and vibration isolation as well as external measuring systems for some time now.

Aerotech is also increasingly acting as an automation partner, supplying fully integrated systems in close consultation with customers. The motion control experts products are used wherever high throughput with precision performance is required including medical technology and life science applications, semiconductor and flat screen production, photonics, automotive, data storage, laser processing, aerospace, electronics manufacturing, as well as inspection and testing through to assembly.
