Motion control systems are ideal for use in applications that require product positioning, rapid start and stop motions and synchronization of unconnected elements. PLCs have the capability to offer the required signals for commanding stepper systems and servos...
This article reviews the motion control scene, and places the introduction of the Hybrid Hexapod® in context for pan-industrial manufacturers working at the bleeding edge of precision and repeatability.
The need for precise motion control is driven by many demands now placed on the line, from moving products around on the manufacturing floor to a variety of work stations to the logistics of moving the finished product through a facility.
For many engineers, pulling all the parts together - the controller with embedded or separate algorithms, the drivers, and the MOSFETs - is a multidisciplinary task, and one for which they dont want to "reinvent the wheel."
