Rise of the Integrated Motion Solution?

“The design philosophy behind integrated solutions is focused on reducing the total cost of ownership. We are seeing staffing levels continue to shrink, or at best remain flat, while integrated motion options expand. This shift has forced many machine builders to seriously question the long held belief that shopping around for every system component provides the highest value”
