Explore our motion control solutions for industrial applications

Because of their reliability and use of leading-edge COTS technologies, Curtiss-Wright electromechanical and electrohydraulic products are frequently used in industrial applications that require a rugged, dependable solution. For example, our camera crane technology is used in the film industry to stabilize cameras, enabling a steady shot in the roughest terrain. Our stabilization technology is used within the railway industry to manage the amount of tilt that occurs as a train travels around a bend to ensure safety and optimal passenger comfort. In the food industry, our technology is used to produce chocolate and cream.
