High Performance Motion and Flow Controls
Marotta Controls designs and manufactures motion and flow control systems and components designed specifically for the Defense, Government Services, Space, and Commercial Aerospace markets.
The keys to Marotta Controls' success:
- Total commitment from our employees to provide customers with world-class service and support
- Diverse product portfolio
- Well-established, loyal customer base
- Continuous research and development
- Lean and low cost manufacturing processes
Marotta Controls was founded in 1943 as The Marotta Engineering Company. Early manufacturing sub-contracts for prime contractors such as General Electric Corporation and RCA enabled Marotta Controls to gain experience in what was to become a particular area of expertise - precision valves and machined components for the rocket and guided missile industry.
Breaking the Sound Barrier
Marotta Controls provided control valves on the rocket engine that powered Chuck Yeager's X-1 in the world's first supersonic flight, placing the company in the forefront of aerospace technology development.
Winning the Race to the Moon
Marotta Controls' valves played an important role in the earliest days of manned space flight. Large numbers of valves and regulators for flight and ground support applications were used in the Mercury, Gemini and Apollo programs, most notable in the propulsions systems of the Apollo Service Module and Lunar Module Ascent engines.
Serving on and Beneath the Sea
Marotta Controls' motion and flow control systems were soon performing many of the demanding fluid control tasks on board naval ships and submarines. Our pressure reducing manifolds control many of the air systems on board, from emergency gas turbine starting on surface combatants to the many critical pressurization functions on nuclear submarines.
What's Next for Marotta Controls?
Although Marotta Controls has a long history of innovation, technological breakthroughs and historic achievements, our focus today is on providing new solutions for tomorrow's next-generation fluid control systems.
Marotta Controls' Future
Marotta Controls continues to support traditional markets with motion and flow control systems and components, while branching out to provide better solutions to new challenges.
High Pressure Pneumatic Systems
Militaries throughout the world are converting to clean, compact and reusable airborne compressor systems (high pressure pneumatic systems) to eject weapons, cool infrared missiles, launch sonobuoys and countermeasures, as well as energize guillotine systems. Marotta Controls is rapidly expanding its family of M-PACT systems, which uses clean, compressed air as a power source to enable these functions.
Electronic Control Systems
We are expanding our electronics capabilities to control various pump and motor applications on military aircraft systems. Our controllers meet the most stringent requirements for hardware and software development. We are also offering smart technologies for our valves in autonomous systems for enhanced control.
Power Supply, Power Conversion Systems
M-Power is a new range of innovative, advanced high power density power supply and power conversion solutions for use in mission critical applications. These robust single and three-phase AC to DC power supply and power conversion systems incorporate the latest technology for temperature and voltage controls with near 1.0 power factor, 2000 W steady state output power, 28 VDC isolated output and 90% efficiency at full temperature range.
Marotta is continuing the development of its composite valve technology M-CRAFT, (Corrosion Resistant Advanced Fluid Technology), to reduce the corrosive effects of seawater in naval applications while increasing the efficiency and life expectancy of the various systems.
