Automation in Motion Delivers Value with FactoryMation
Two factors often dominate the decision to choose one product or supplier over another: reliability and affordability. It is important for industrial control products to work reliably to avoid potential damage to expensive and critical machinery or even potential harm to personnel. Reliable, high-quality products can be expensive, and price becomes a pivotal point of the supply process. Automation in Motion sought reliable industrial products at the best prices available, and their search brought them to rely on FactoryMation for a variety of industrial automation and control product needs.
Based out of Cleveland, Georgia, Automation in Motion has been in business for around ten years. They specialize in developing industrial automation and control solutions for a variety of industries. Automation in Motion creates innovative, effective, and reliable automation control products for customers around the globe from their location in Georgia. The products and services they offer are as wide-ranging as the industries they serve. Their work includes everything from chemical mixers for truck washes used by large international corporations to gasification systems utilized in a wide range of water treatment scenarios.
Dan McClenathen chooses which suppliers to go with for Automation in Motion’s component needs. Dan is a veteran of over thirty years in the industrial automation world. His experience has given him a discerning eye regarding the components he selects for his projects, and likewise he strives to find the best crossroads between cost and quality. In this search, Dan began ordering from FactoryMation for numerous components frequently used in his control panels. He found that they had the combination of competitive pricing and reliability that he required for his innovative products. “You [have] a good price on a product [and] the product works,” Dan says of FactoryMation’s wide range of industrial control products. Component price was what brought him to FactoryMation, but he makes it clear that the reliability and effectiveness of the products are just as important.
One such product line developed by Automation in Motion is the PrO2 Series Oxygen Gasification System. Oxygen gasification machines are used in a multitude of applications including hydroponics, retention pond aeration, separation of biofuel wastewater, treatment and restoration of lakes and reservoirs, auto and truck wash water remediation, and many others. These systems work by saturating water with an abundance of oxygen and then introducing the oxygenated water into the targeted body of water or waste system. This oxygen-rich water enables aerobic bacteria to consume waste to clean the water systems in question. Automation in Motion’s PrO2 Oxygen Gasification Systems utilize advanced techniques to deliver a highly-efficient 96% oxygen transfer rate that beats competing methods such as bubble diffusers. The PrO2 has been sold throughout the United States and has even broken into the Chinese market.
Industry-leading value is what continues to bring Dan back to FactoryMation, and competitive prices and quality enable Automation in Motion to carry that value to their customers. FactoryMation has a stock of over 40,000 industrial automation control products from manufacturers trusted around the world. These products are offered at competitive prices and delivered quickly to where they need to be. “The amount you have in stock and the amount of time it takes me to get the product is very quick,” Dan agrees. “I don’t have any issues.” All of Dan’s shopping is done through the FactoryMation website. He is able to quickly and easily locate what he needs without needing to contact customer service or tech support with questions. Beyond the website, the quality of FactoryMation’s supply means that Automation in Motion does not need to order replacements or keep large inventory on hand for quick repairs. According to Dan, “I don’t have to replace any of your products with something else. It just works.”
