In just over two years, Belgium firm Sedacta has managed to manifest itself as a true expert in all things motion control. Previously working for the automation department of a much larger firm, operating under a new name has allowed founder Thomas Mortier and his two partners to fully focus on industrial automation. As a member of the Valtech Group, they now work with clients across various industries, from countries all over the world.
“Offering complete solutions is our strength,” Mortier tells us. “Collectively, our team of engineers offers a wide variety of disciplines, whether it’s for local projects or global installations. In addition, we take pride in our client-focused approach. If a client comes to us with a particular challenge, we’ll go above and beyond to reveal the roots of the issue, using our expert insights to provide informed, sustainable solutions.”
As a big player in the field of motion control, Sedacta combines fast movements with highly accurate positioning, which can then be used for feeding U-beams and sheet metal, as well as other materials such as wood panels and latex foam. “Accurate positioning, high accelerations and fast reaction times are what we know best,” Mortier admits. As such, their client base mostly includes companies in the automotive (Volvo Trucks, MAN, DAF) and transformer (ABB, Siemens) industries, as well as firms specialised in perforating sheet metal (Armstrong, RMIG, Arcelor Mittal).
As experts in the automation industry, Sedacta has also been increasingly active in different fields of the production process. “We are driven by value-creating technology,” says Mortier. Through the integration of Industry 4.0, robotics and vision technology, we help our customers evolve into smart factories of the future.
