ESI’s Manufacturing and Support Commitment

ESI Motion is known for our ruggedized servo controllers, but we are about a lot more than just hardware. The entire ESI team is committed to delivering unmatched service and support to our clients. Employees collaborate closely with suppliers, partners and clients to create open communication channels and foster mutually beneficial relationships. Our policy is “The Management of ESI Motion and our employees are committed to meeting the requirements of our customers and continually improving our processes to provide quality products.”

Our quality assurance program is rooted in the Six Sigma and Total Quality Management philosophies. This foundation, along with a dedicated team, promotes the following:

  • We strive to reach zero defects with every solution.
  • Quality design is integrated into every company process.
  • Understanding that simple designs are usually the best solutions.
  • Driving continuous improvement with every decision and change.

AS9100D Certification

ESI Motion follows strict AS9100D quality management and documentation processes, six sigma process improvement methodology and industry standard project management practices.

These practices along with ESI Motion’s highly specialized technology allow us to consistently deliver
on-time, high-quality products that exceed client expectations.

The AS9100D certification is a standardized quality management system for the defense and aerospace industries. ESI Motion is proud to be recognized in this elite class of manufacturers and companies and strives to exceed even the expectations of the certification program with every relationship.

An AS9100D certification indicates that ESI Motion has demonstrated the ability to consistently provide a product that meets or exceeds the requirements set forth by the client and any related industry or regulatory standard. It also demands that ESI improve customer satisfaction by continually using feedback to improve internal processes.


For ESI Motion, a great customer experience and a quality product are paramount to success. We work closely with Perry Johnson Registrars to maintain and improve all aspects of our business with periodic audits and comprehensive reporting. While not an industry requirement, this helps us ensure we are providing excellent products and services always. Visit Perry Johnson Registrars to learn more.

Why EtherCAT?

  • EtherCAT is leading as far as unmatched performance.
  • The strength of EtherCAT synchronization techniques allows it to be compatible with high-demanding and simpler applications.
  • Combined with the correct implementation of both the network protocol and a proper device profile, true distributed motion controlcan now be achieved.

EtherCAT and Your Machine

There is a great difference between a product that uses its own interpretation of a communication protocol and one that meets a universally accepted standard that provides product engineers with huge advantages such as:

  • Fast and simple integration with any other compliance product.
  • Proper and reliable operation of the network in terms of efficiency, speed, bus load, etc.
  • Efficient and fast communication transportation.
  • High levels of synchronization and coordination of the nodes.
  • Superior cycling, synchronization for optimal multi-axis applications.
  • An “open” network for adding, omitting, replacing (including vendors), upgrading nodes of any compliant product.
  • Compatibility with future compliant products and solutions.
