What is "Servo"?

The word ?servo? comes from the Latin word ?servus? which means the servant who acts according to his master?s instructions and works faithfully and quickly. To put it simply, servos are devices that follow a command to a target position and speed. They are good at moving quickly and repeatedly to a target position and are therefore adapted to a wide range of high-speed and high-performance equipment and automated machines used in plants. For example, servos are used in most manufacturing equipment for manufacturing semiconductors and LCD panels.

Baumer Encoders


Advanced Encoder

Programmable optical encoder allows one encoder to be used in the place of many.


We are currently looking to appoint an Internal Sales Engineer. The role involves a high level of customer contact. A good technical aptitude, allied with a sound engineering education and a keenness to learn more about machinery and its workings will be key to success in this role. Following an initial period of familiarisation with systems and products and processing customer requirements into orders the role will develop into advising on component selection and implementation.

Career development will be both technical and commercial. The successful candidate will have to continue to learn about machinery control systems and become somebody the customer can trust into advising them on how to solve their control requirements. While initially office based as competence increases it will be necessary to visit customers to discuss their requirements.

Please apply by emailed CV to recruitment@goodwinelectronics.com

What's news?

Yaskawa launched the all new GA700 inverters at the recent drives and control show giving customers thier first opportunity to see the simplest, yet most intelligent drive they have ever made.
If you use sigma 2 servo drives from Yaskawa or Omron you need to consider upgrading if you don't want extended machine down time.
Goodwin Electronics have launched their online shop for proximity sensing technology and rotary and linear encoders.
Following the floods in Cumbria last December, Goodwin Electronics were pleased to provide support to help restart the factory.
