Line Following in the Packaging Industry

Sophisticated control capabilities and servomotors are the next logical advances to replace stepper motors in typical line following packaging applications. There are many variations of line following applications within the packaging industry including labeling, cut-to-length, fly cutting, lane diversion, rotary knife and more. All of these line following applications have the same machine functions at…

Customized Relationships and Coordinated Motion with StatusGetAxisItemFast()

Many applications require custom coordinated relationships between a system parameter or ancillary motion equipment and the motion of the primary machine mechanics. Likewise, it is common to need custom kinematic transformations between a virtual programming coordinate frame and that of the real mechanics. Aerotech’s AeroScript programming language includes the StatusGetAxisItemFast() function as an ideal tool…

New Data Collection Tool for Complex Positioning Systems at Beamlines

Maximizing measurement throughput is paramount in scientific and industrial applications alike, which is certainly the case with beamline and synchrotron facilities. Beamline and synchrotron facilities allot time to users with the understanding that users will collect all of their data in a given period. A hindrance to this was the slow data collection process implemented…

Automation1 Servo Drives Improve In-Position Stability

When it comes to characterizing precision mechatronic systems, a meaningful system performance test is the measurement of in-position stability or in-position jitter. In this test, the axis is commanded to hold a target position and the small motion of the mechanical positioning axis is measured. Many applications require nanometer-level positioning and little-to-no motion when commanded…
