About this eNewsletter

Frequency: 12 issues/year
Description: GlobalSpec's Drives free eNewsletter offers subscribers a wealth of information on drives used in motion control and machine automation solutions. Drive types covered include adjustable speed, servo, stepper, and AC motor drives. Engineers involved in drive design and application must consider factors including motor or drive type, number of axes, power output, torque capacity, rated speed, sampling frequency, analog-to-digital resolution, and communication interface. Information offered in this newsletter may assist in the determination of those factors.

An Amazing Transformation Underway in the Machine-design Process

An Amazing Transformation Underway in the Machine-design Process The growing popularity of motion out-of-the-box devices that combine the controller, drive, motor, I/O, and gearhead represents one of the top three trends shaping the motion-control industry, according to this Machine Design article penned by Bill Allai, chairman of the Motion Control Association. The other two trends to keep an eye on: SoftMotion that allows programmers flexibility and scalability when developing automated systems; and advanced control techniques such as full-frequency autotuning. Also described are collaborative efforts to promote technology development in the areas of prototyping and simulation of mechanical dynamics.

Real-World Pros & Cons of VFDs in Servo Control Applications

Real-World Pros & Cons of VFDs in Servo Control ApplicationsOver the years there have been many attempts to migrate the application of variable-frequency drives (VFDs) from simple speed regulation to true servo control, which means closed-loop control of speed and position. This approach is gaining in popularity, but it is not for every application. Problems can arise if all pertinent factors are not considered. This presentation looks at real-world applications of VFDs as servo drives, explores the pros and cons, and highlights the issues.

Rapid, Reliable MC System Design

Rapid, Reliable MC System Design Thermal modeling, system efficiency analysis, supply-voltage tolerance analysis, lifetime estimation, and system tuning estimation — new motion-analyzer software does it all and more. Data-entry fields include load type and load data, which can then be associated with several variable-vs-time motion profiles. The software even generates a bill of materials and delivers improved mechatronics support.

Machine Cycle Time Slashed

Machine Cycle Time Slashed A new multi-axis motion-control system cleared the way for machine-tool builder Sinico to develop a new automated nine-axis rotary-transfer tube cutoff and end-finishing machine. An application-specific CNC system is credited with reducing the machine's cycle time for blank loading and setting to just 9 sec. from 21 sec. of the previous machine model.

Power Measurement Tips and Techniques

Power Measurement Tips and Techniques A one-hour Webinar from Yokogawa Corporation of America offers tips and techniques for making accurate power measurements on distorted waveforms. Presenter Bill Gatheridge, product manager, covers waveforms from power supplies, electronic ballasts and variable-speed PWM motor drives. Also addressed: harmonic analysis of various power waveforms.

Drives, Camera, Action

Drives, Camera, Action A servo-driven speed-matching system added to press controls manufactured by QuadTech optimizes productivity in inline configurations of web-offset and carton-board converting lines. The firm enhanced its controls by adding servo drives and motors, and a MultiCam camera to identify register marks. The result is precise speed control of the metering roll, ensuring maximum throughput.

Microsteppers are Smooth Operators

Microsteppers are Smooth Operators "The stepper motors were so quiet I thought the machine wasn't running," says the president of a machine-tool manufacturer, describing the company's use of microstepping drives. A step motor drive equipped with the drives approaches the level of smooth performance of continuous motors, which for routers and mills lessens the risk of breaking bits.

VSDs More Than Just Energy Savers

VSDs More Than Just Energy Savers Speed and torque control along a production line — thanks to variable-speed drives (VSDs) in motors, conveyors, mixers, etc. — leads to a more consistent-quality end product. This article, published in Motors & Drives, explains how VSDs benefit food and beverage manufacturers beyond just saving energy, namely by delivering increased throughput, shock-load prevention, and more.

Servo-drive Units Seal the Meal

Servo-drive Units Seal the Meal "The moton of our drive and lift system," says a CP Packaging executive, "separates us from other manufacturers... a servo belt drive eliminates the potential for a dirty chain and more downtime." The quote describes a key advantage of the company's new six-axis meat-packaging machine, whose motion-control system features integrated servo motor/drive units.

Wide-ranging Support Over EtherNet/IP

Wide-ranging Support Over EtherNet/IP Eight new step-motor drives support more than 100 commands and 130 registers over the Ethernet/IP protocol, at 100 Mbits/sec. Supported commands include point-to-point moves, homing, jogging, registration, and encoder following. The drives also store Q programs to execute complex, intelligent command sequences. DC- and AC-powered models include auto-tuned digital current control.

Automation Summit in the Land of the Mouse

Automation Summit in the Land of the Mouse Automation World managing editor Renee Robbins reports on the application of motor and drive technology at Walt Disney World, which recently hosted the 2011 Siemens Automation Summit user conference. Robbins spent time perusing the park for control technology in action. Among her observations: master drives help force a linear induction motor to facilitate faster acceleration of the Rock-N-Rollercoaster.

Robotic Worm Plays Hide and Seek

Robotic Worm Plays Hide and Seek Search and rescue professionals may soon have a new partner at their disposals — the "worm-bot" robotic worm, being developed at the University of Leeds. The mechanism is modeled after a tiny biological worm to navigate intelligently around obstacles. Developers are adding layers of artificial intelligence to optimize navigation paths through irregular gaps and holes in buildings damaged by fire, earthquakes, or explosions (worm in action).
