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:
