Allied Motion Closes 2021 With Three Acquisitions

Facebook X LinkedIn Email
Allied Motion Technologies, a designer and manufacturer of precision and specialty controlled motion products, acquired ALIO Industries, a manufacturer of advanced linear and rotary motion systems for nano-precision applications. The purchase price of $20 million consisted of $15 million in cash and $5 million in common stock. In addition, there are potential earn-out payments over the next three years based on ALIO achieving certain annual EBITDA targets.

Headquartered in Arvada, Colo., outside Denver, ALIO designs, engineers, and manufactures nanotechnology motion systems for applications in robotics, silicon photonics, micro assembly, digital pathology, genome sequencing, laser processing, and microelectronics.

The acquisition comes on the heels of Allied Motion Technologies’ purchase of ORMEC Systems Corp., a manufacturer of electro-mechanical automation solutions and motion control products, including multi-axis controls, actuators for the automation and aerospace industries, and servo-control and servo-positioning systems.

Glossary
machine vision
Machine vision, also known as computer vision or computer sight, refers to the technology that enables machines, typically computers, to interpret and understand visual information from the world, much like the human visual system. It involves the development and application of algorithms and systems that allow machines to acquire, process, analyze, and make decisions based on visual data. Key aspects of machine vision include: Image acquisition: Machine vision systems use various...
nano
An SI prefix meaning one billionth (10-9). Nano can also be used to indicate the study of atoms, molecules and other structures and particles on the nanometer scale. Nano-optics (also referred to as nanophotonics), for example, is the study of how light and light-matter interactions behave on the nanometer scale. See nanophotonics.
positioning
Positioning generally refers to the determination or identification of the location or placement of an object, person, or entity in a specific space or relative to a reference point. The term is used in various contexts, and the methods for positioning can vary depending on the application. Key aspects of positioning include: Spatial coordinates: Positioning often involves expressing the location of an object in terms of spatial coordinates. These coordinates may include dimensions such as...
nanopositioning
Nanopositioning refers to the precise and controlled movement or manipulation of objects or components at the nanometer scale. This technology enables the positioning of objects with extremely high accuracy and resolution, typically in the range of nanometers or even sub-nanometer levels. Nanopositioning systems are employed in various scientific, industrial, and research applications where ultra-precise positioning is required. Key features and aspects of nanopositioning include: Small...
