In this article, I attempt to arm manufacturers with the questions that they need to ask to ensure that the motion control solution option chosen is right first time and up to the job. These questions should ideally focus on not just capabilities but also values.
EtherCAT is proven to optimize machine performance with its deterministic performance, flexible topology, and diverse set of features. To better understand why users should use EtherCAT, let's review its history, how it works, and the problems it solves.
Integrating VFDs into your applications enables you to implement robust, precise control that cuts your energy requirements; built-in communication-based control reduces your wiring and IO modules costs.
Precision industrial motion systems are used in test, assembly or laser micro-machining of high precision and high value components and in electronics, optics, and photonics manufacturing, to name a few.
Motion control is at the core of automation technology. Whether it is 3D printing, robotics, semiconductor manufacturing or machine tools, HEIDENHAIN offers the precision feedback in both linear and angular, as well as positioning systems and controls. Booth #4466
As the demand for more and more exacting motion control increases across numerous industry sectors, it is vital that before investing, customers are informed enough to make sure that they select the right solution for their specific application.
Aerotech, continuing its commitment to the art and science of motion control, looks to Renishaw for versatile, high-precision laser interferometer encoders for its medical stages.

The compact brushless EC-i motor combined with an EPOS4 positioning controller delivers a highly dynamic, powerful drive package with field-oriented control (FOC), high efficiency, and maintenance-free components in a high-quality industrial housing. The maxon IDX drives are suitable for use across the entire speed range (from standstill to maximum speed) and have an extremely high overload capability. Together with a positioning controller, the integrated sensor (single turn) enables absolute positioning.
