As automated equipment in industrial, medical and life science markets become increasingly faster and more accurate, engineers must adapt with higher performing linear motion and positioning systems. At the same time, the envelope for motion control is shrinking, making it difficult to design a fast, precise system that can fit into tight spaces.
Despite these challenges, it’s possible to design a linear motion system that delivers the high performance these machines demand. For example, a linear positioning table and digital controller combination optimized for high-speed communications and fast response times achieves an ideal balance of precise positioning and exceptional control.
Our new white paper, Fine-tune Linear Motion Positioning for High-speed, Automated Machines, explains some of the essentials machine designers should look for in a precision linear motion system and digital servo drive. It also describes an out-of-the-box setup — using an IKO NT Series two-axis (X and Y) stage and a Copley Controls AccelnetPlus Drive — that provides exceptional results.
Together, these components provide an ideal combination of precision, speed and compact sizes to deliver reliable, high-speed motion and meet the requirements of today’s automated systems.
