Application Engineering
We don’t believe in a cookie cutter approach to machine building. When we design and build a machine for your business, it will be tailor-made to suit your needs and budget.

Our team will bring our considerable experience and expertise to bear on installing and commissioning your chosen system.

While we’d prefer you to purchase a system we’ve designed for your particular needs, we understand that you may have already purchased one elsewhere. We settle for nothing less than optimal performance in every system we install.


We save our clients money whenever possible by conducting repairs at component level, including PLCs, servo drives and motors, encoders, inverters, and thyristor controllers.

When it comes to industrial electronic repairs, many suppliers would find it easier to replace larger units rather than repair them. That’s not the Motion Tronic way.


As the sole South African agents for Baumüller and Microsonic agents and Phasecon in KZN, we do our utmost to ensure immediate delivery of spare parts and exchange units.

We understand that time is money and that spare parts can make all the difference to getting your production up and running again. On the rare occasion where this is not possible, we will arrange express three-day delivery.

Bradley Douglas, Managing Director
Bradley Douglas started Motion Tronic in 2003 after working in the electronic manufacturing industry for 9 years.

Practicing a hands-on approach to the business, Bradley has a natural inclination for developing efficient, innovative solutions to technical problems. This ability is a key reason for Motion Tronic’s success.

In November 2006, Baumuller selected Motion Tronic as its sole authorised service partner in South Africa. In December 2006, Motion Tronic was awarded sole agency for Microsonic products and in 2016 awarded the sole Servo Mold agency for South Africa. These selections are testament to Motion Tronic’s superior offering and Bradley’s commitment to excellent supplier and customer relations.
