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 find the right encoder for a servo motor

    Servo motors are a kind of direct drive motor that, generally speaking, pack a lot of power into a component that doesn’t need to take up a lot of space. On average, they 2-3 times more rated torque and 5-10 times more rated torque over short periods. This makes them ideal for high-tech machinery and […]
