Jim Craig joins AC Technology, a member of the Lenze Group, as the new director of engineering. He will direct the design of all new products, development and sustaining engineering activities at the company’s North American headquarters in Uxbridge, Massachusetts.
“Bringing Craig on to spearhead new product development will enable our engineers to further push the envelope of our already state-of-the-art products,” says Allen Ottoson, president and founder of Lenze-AC Technology.
Craig previously served as the product manager of high-power motor drives at Danfoss, and he has more than 28 years of experience in industrial automation. He received a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from Southern Illinois University and conducted graduate work at Stanford University. Craig is credited with multiple patents.
Craig says as a goal, “I’d like to see an increase in the trend of how machinery and process control are being inter-linked—the seamless automation of the whole factory.”
AC Technology develops, manufactures, supports and markets a range of motion control solutions, including servo drives and motors, clutches and brakes, gears and gear motors and variable frequency AC motor drives.
