Improving up-time, reliability and assuring safety

Our product brand has been known for quality printing systems since 1952. Within the printing industry drive solutions from Control Techniques can help insure successful deadlines by improving up-time, reliability and assuring safety.

Insuring a successful retrofit is our promise. With over 50 years of building AC and DC drives, and retrofitting systems for the printing industry, Control Techniques has the experience and the products to meet and exceed customer expectations.
