Coordinated Control

Aerotech’s control technologies can coordinate and synchronize up to 32 axes of motion of any motion technology to sub-microsecond servo-loop synchronization and sub-millisecond path trajectories. This tight synchronization between all motion axes results in higher precision processing and faster process throughput. Examples of Aerotech controller features that enable coordination and synchronization are:

Using the Automation1 Transformation Function for Five Axis Systems

The transformation functions in Automation1 implement rotation, mirror, and translation matrix operations. The functions can be used to transform coordinates on mechanical actuators that include rotary motion. Multiple rotation matrices can be configured using the TransformationConfigure() function for systems that have more than one rotary axis. A five‐axis system consisting of two rotary axes and…

ThermoComp® Integrated Temperature Compensation

Thermal error management has been a major concern of precision machine designers since the 19th century. To this day, temperature changes and thermal effects are still some of the largest error sources in precision machines. One major reason for this is the difficulty and often extreme expense associated with designing a thermally insensitive machine. Most…
