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:

EasyTune Advanced Motion Controller Autotuning Tool

EasyTune® is the most advanced autotuning tool available in a commercial motion controller. Entirely data-driven, the algorithm mimics the process followed by an experienced controls engineer. Many existing tuning techniques rely on basic model-fitting or “rules-of-thumb” that ignore machine resonances or nonlinear behavior, but EasyTune directly measures and compensates for those effects. It assumes no…

Enhanced Tracking Control (ETC)

Aerotech’s unique Enhanced Tracking Control (ETC) feature improves move-and-settle times in point-to-point positioning and reduces tracking errors during contoured motion. It is available on all Aerotech controllers (A3200, Ensemble® and Soloist®) including our Nmark® CLS high-performance galvo controller. The Enhanced Tracking Control algorithm works in parallel with a conventional Proportional-Integral-Derivative (PID) control architecture and increases the…

High-Bandwidth Force Control

Traditionally, linear stages are used with encoders to position to precise points in a motion profile. These encoders are used for both positioning and, in the case of brushless servomotors, for motor commutation as well. However, in certain applications like material press-bonding, position is not as important as force. When binding two materials together, if…
