From this Article:
Ironcore linear motors have traditionally suffered from a phenomenon known as cogging. This is seen as a periodically varying resistive force when the motor is pushed by hand and it is caused because... (View Full Article)

From this Article:
Automated motion control may not seem to have much in common with such sports as ice hockey, ski jumping and bobsledding, but they all came together in Vancouver for the 2010 Winter Olympics. Thanks... (View Full Article)
(Positioning Stages, Slides and Guides)
From this Article:
PID control is the gold standard for most moving machines, and quite adequate in most applications that require closed-loop control. However, it's vulnerable to disturbances, and tuning can be... (View Full Article)
(Machine and Motion Controllers)
From this Article:
A feed-to-length application is one where a specific amount of material is to be fed a known distance and stopped, then followed by another process. There are no stipulations on the size and type of... (View Full Article)
