Integrated Motion Control – A Machine Builder’s Secret Weapon

556 views

Published on

Successful companies don’t talk about their “secret weapon”, fearful that competitors will discover and use the technology. While the trend in automation is towards integration, many machine builders have quietly and covertly found success with fully integrated motion control and the numerous benefits and cost savings it provides. And we’re going to let you in on their advantage.
In this webinar you will learn how employing fully integrated motion control systems such as Moog Animatics’ SmartMotor can make machines quicker to replicate, reduce machine footprint, eliminate control cabinets and reduce cabling costs. In addition, in-depth coverage of multi-axis machines and their applications will show you how fully integrated motion control systems can be programmed before the machine is even built and how to ease the pain of adding additional axes.
Watch this webinar to learn:
How to reduce total system install costs
How to program your motion profiles before your machine is built
How to add multiple axes without additional cabinet space
