Overview

Whether it is for factory automation, a stand alone machine, or the core part of a larger machine, design of a linear motion system can be a daunting project. This presentation will examine the components that make up a single- or multi-axis system, review the design process, and identify commonly made mistakes. Learn More
Jonathan Schroeder, Business Development Manager, PBC Linear

Date: June 9, 2010
Time: 2 PM EDT (11 AM PDT)
Duration: 1 hour

Overview

"Precision in Motion" will examine friction and other primary error sources in ultra-precision linear or rotary motion applications. The presentation will cover the fundamental rules of precision and the role that temperature plays. It will explore kinematic design and exact constraint theory, as well as axis of rotation principles. Understand the steps necessary to reduce friction and increase precision. Learn More

Time: 3 PM EDT (12 PM PDT)
Duration: 1 hour

Overview

PACs (motion controllers) with an embedded Web server give users the ability to securely support day-to-day operations and maintenance needs without expensive engineering software or training. With a Web browser and Ethernet connection only, plant technicians can securely perform maintenance tasks and diagnostic functions. Learn More

Duration: 1 hour

Overview

This presentation will address the advantages of using field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) for networked and functionally safe drive- and motion-control systems. FPGAs offer a viable alternative to microcontrollers or digital signal processors. They can deliver greater performance and flexibility, as well as lower total cost of ownership (TCO). Learn More
