Novanta IMS provides leading innovations in drives, controls and integrated motion solutions. Their MDrive motion control products deliver exceptional smoothness and performance, ideal for machine builders who want an optimized motor with on-board electronics. The integrated electronics of MDrive products reduce the potential for problems due to electrical noise by eliminating the cable between motor and drive.
Product Focus: MDrive Integrated Motors
MDrive represents motors integrated with motion control components for compact solutions.
Reduce machine size, cost, and complexity with the world leader in integrated motors — MDrive®.
MDrive products integrate motor, driver, controller, internal encoder and closed-loop performance, all in one compact package. Units are programmable and networkable, satisfying the motion control requirements of many new and existing applications.
The complete family of MDrive intelligent integrated motors includes:
- Liberty* MDrive
- Liberty* MDrive Linear Actuator
- MDrive Plus

Product Focus: Hybrid Stepper Motors
Hybrid stepper motors from IMS are available in rotary sizes NEMA 11 (28 mm) through 34 (85 mm), and linear actuator sizes NEMA 17 (42 mm) and 23 (57 mm). These extremely robust, long-life motors carry out precise step-by-step movements that are controlled by a stepper motor drive, such as MForce, to comprise a stepper motor drive system.
Hybrid stepper motors can be operated at very high resolutions, depending on the stepper motor drive.
- Rotary hybrid stepper motors
- Linear hybrid stepper motors
Product Focus: Motion Drives and Controllers
Panel and PCB-mount motion drivers and controllers deliver an easy to use and integrate compact motion control solutions for a wide range of applications.
The complete family of Motion Drives and controller products include:
- Liberty (previously Lexium) Motion Module
- PCB-mount discrete drivers
