Strategies for solving today’s biggest motion control challenges

July 9, 2020

Each project, each application, each system will always have its own set of complex motion control challenges; it’s staggering how many variables can be involved. Pair that with the fact that the market for motion control technology is poised to reach nearly $23 billion by 2022, according to the Motion Control & Motor Association (MCMA), and new possibilities and challenges are being unlocked all the time.

From lowering the cost of advanced technologies with the right components, like a motor or encoder, to improving functional safety in automated environments, HEIDENHAIN engineers discuss some of the issues engineers are facing and, most importantly, strategies and equipment that can be used to overcome and prevent them.

    How to choose the right encoders for semiconductor machinery

    You can have all the bandwidth, AI, or optics in the world, but none of it matters if a semiconductor tool cannot meaningfully reach nanometer level precision without compromising its throughput. When the goal is to make precise measurements as quickly as possible, the max speed of a motion system’s axis won’t matter if it’s […]
